Not that long ago finding just the right greeting card was a time consuming laborious process. These days I can find and send any card from the privacy of my iPhone or iPad. All you need is a greeting card app. Guess who makes a good one.
Type ‘greeting card‘ into the search field of the iTunes App Store and you’ll have more greeting card apps than Republicans have ways to filibuster the Senate.
One of the best is also from a greeting card company so you’ll get the best of both worlds. Greeting cards you can send as email or snail mail.
So, why would they give you an app which also lets you send greeting cards? I dunno. Maybe it’s like free candy at the dentist’s office.
Regardless, justWink comes with 200 greeting cards ready to customize for your occasion.
It works. There’s no catch. And, well, there’s a catch.
Select a greeting card by selecting a category to match.
Then, type in your own personalized greeting. Or, add a photo to the card.
What do you think? Is that an easier way to find and send greeting cards, or what?
What’s the catch? More on that in a moment.
justWink lets you preview your personalized card before you click the Send button. Send?
Yes, you can select a card, personalize it with your own greeting, add a photo, and send it via email, Twitter, iMessage to text message, upload to Facebook, or send it via real mail. As in postal service. And you pay through your iPhone account.
justWink has a built-in reminder for specific occasions and events, but the option to send a real paper greeting card through the postal service is built-in, too. There’s also an American Greeting Cards store locator in case you want to browse through real cards.
All that is free. Except for the real paper cards, and the post office.
