APP OF THE DAY: Cards

Apple's take on Hallmark

Cards
Cost: Free | Developer:Apple | Platform: iOS | Version 1.0.1 | 20.0MB | Requires iOS 5.0 or better

Cards is a surprising app from Apple: released with relatively little fanfare, it’s simple, even by Apple standards.

But it plays into a good idea – take a photo of wherever you are at the time, stick it on one of a handful of card templates, and then sent it anywhere you like in the world (as it, a hard prints copy) for $5.

It’s precisely the kind of creative application that suits the iPhone, and makes personalising time away from friends and family easy. As the iPhone 4’s camera is pretty good, the hard copy cards look nice when they arrive, too, though not exactly Hallmark standard.

There are other card making applications available for the App Store, but few are as simple or easy to use as this one.

This app was reviewed on an iPhone 4S. Pros: A very easy way to send post cards to loved ones back home

Cons: It’s not going to excite the more creative folks

Verdict: An easy to use, fun, and useful little application? Of course it’s an Apple product.
