I had the chance to test out an App made by one of my friends and wanted to help him with the announcement. eCard Express is a super neat idea because it is somewhat similar to Contract Maker in that it uses templates which you can then customize into different types of cards. For the price of $1.99, I just don't see why anyone who sends out cards on a regular basis wouldn't want to try it out. I know I personally am awful about remembering birthdays and sending cards, and this really gives you a number of options (including last day delivery).
Sometimes it really is better to send a real card, but for the times I have forgotten or missed, I wish I would have had this earlier.
Alex has also told me that he has a number of Promo codes for those of you who are willing to leave feedback. If you are interested, please say so in the comments. If he can get you a code, he will! (Free Apps!)
Here is the official Press Release:
eCard Express for iPad - Personal and Business Greeting Cards for Everyday Use.
Toronto, Ontario - Announcing that Bartsoft Inc., a Canadian based company, have released the new festive greeting card application for the iPad - eCard Express HD. This application enables users to create and customize greeting cards with high quality stickers, frames, and their own photos or images from the photo library. eCard Express HD is intuitive, very easy to use, and very efficient at producing birthday greetings, dinner invitations, congratulations cards and customizable frames.
Bartsoft Inc. describes the app as "the best way to stay in touch with friends, family, business partners and customers through a fun and interactive ecard application."
With eCard Express HD users have access to two card types - frames and greeting cards. Frames are filled with the user's chosen photo from their photo library. If no photo is the desired option, however, the user can choose from a number of digital cards from all the popular categories such as Birthday, Valentine's Day - Love Cards, Congratulations, Invitation, Get Well, Sorry, Thank You, National Holidays, Religious Cards just to name a few. Both can then be shared instantly through email, Facebook and Twitter, or saved to the photo library. The app also allows users to save their creation to "My Cards", which is essentially an in-app library of all user-saved creations and a very convenient way to put together ecards for iPad users on the go, since it does not require a network connection until actually sending the cards.
While it may seem complicated, eCard Express HD is very intuitive and straightforward even for a novice iPad user. With a very well designed user interface and Retina display graphics it makes the creation process significantly more enjoyable.
eCard Express HD Features:
- Effortlessly create colorful and appealing greeting and photo cards just the way you want them.
