We can’t believe Apple bothered to develop a Cards app for the iPhone, but, hey, there are old people who still love to send and receive cards, and young people who’ve forgotten what cards even are, and they both use the iPhone. It’s out in the app store now so I just sent myself a card. I’m sort of excited?
I thought it was stupid before I used it, I still think it’s stupid after using it but I think… I’m probably going to use it. It’s actually not that expensive! It’s only five bucks to send a card anywhere in the world. I whipped up something silly, and I’m now impatiently waiting to get it in the mail. God, why am I even excited for this crap? I’m tingling!
There’s 21 different card layouts and you can write a quick short message to your heart’s desire and add a picture (one in your camera roll or snap a new shot). Cards guides you step by step to fill out the proper information (put a picture here, add a title here, sign there, etc). The iPhone feels a little bit cramped to do all this work (there’s no iPad version oddly) but whatever, it takes two seconds to whip up something that’ll make someone feel good.
Here’s the perfect scenario to use Cards: you forgot your girlfriend’s or mum’s or sister’s or grandma’s birthday. This is sooo much easier than doing the whole legit card thing. Ooh! Another scenario: cards for sexting. Oh yeah, let’s take it to the next level. [iTunes]
