With Christmas just a few days away, it’s time to start sending those Christmas postcards on their way. There are a ton of greeting card apps available for iOS, some of which even let you design, purchase and send real postcards, like Apple’s very own Cards for iOS 5. Cardmon is a nice new addition to the genre. The app lets you create custom cards for all occasions, and then share them with your friends via email or over social media. You must have come across a lot of services that offer cards for all occasions, but sending those cards to your loved ones never sends the right kind of message, given the fact that anyone could have sent the exact same card to them, and there is usually a logo or ad linked with the e-Card as well. Cardmon solves all these issues by letting its users make clean, personalized cards and share them easily with your friends even if they don’t have an iOS device.
Cardmon has a number of templates which can be customized according to your needs. The templates are sorted into categories based on the occasions that they are meant to be used on. Following are the greeting card categories currently available in Cardmon.
- Invitation cards
- Love letters
- Thank You
There are New Year cards available in the app as well, but they are locked by default. To unlock them, you have to install Flava (previously reviewed) to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. That app, like Cardmon itself, is free.
Some of the cards are pretty generic, and can be used for almost any occasion. The level of customization offered for all the cards is pretty good as well. You can snap new photos from within the app or simply load an image from the local library, add custom text with Font, Style and text Color and alignment of your choice. There are a decent number of font types available for all cards.
When you are done creating a card, you can simply save it to the device’s photo library, or share it straight away via email or on Facebook & Twitter. The app can certainly use the addition of more cards and categories, but even as it is, most people will find Cardmon more than enough for their requirements.
