Apple's Cards App Arrives

October 12, 2011
Apple has just released its new Cards app for the iPhone/iPod touch. First announced at last week’s iPhone event, the free app makes it easy for customers to create and mail personalized cards simply by using their iDevice. Features include: Custom letterpress cards
  • Cards combine a centuries-old letterpress technique with your digital text and photos
  • Each card is crafted from 100 percent cotton paper and imprinted with an elegant debossed design
  • Choose from 21 designs for six occasions: Thank You, Holiday, New Baby, Birthday, Love, and Travel
  • Customize the placeholder text for any occasion, such as an anniversary or graduation
  • Add a photo to your card or send one with just text
Location integration
  • If you select one of the Travel designs, your card automatically displays the name of your current location
  • Choose a photo with GPS data, and the card shows the name of the place where the photo was taken
Prepaid postage included
  • U.S. customers can send a card within the U.S. for $2.99 including postage
  • Send a card anywhere else in the world for $4.99 including postage
  • Select an address from your Contacts and easily personalize it — from Mr. Johnny Appleseed to The Appleseed Family, for example
  • To place your order, simply enter your Apple ID password
  • In the U.S., your card will include our own Apple-designed postage
Delivery notification
  • Cards mailed to U.S. addresses make use of the United States Postal Service Intelligent Mail® barcode
  • On the day your card is to be delivered, you’ll receive a notification on your iPhone or iPod touch
Card history
  • All your cards are automatically saved and can be viewed in a history list
  • You can resend any card to another recipient — perfect for when you have a lot of friends to thank or you want to spread the word about the newest member of your family
Download the free Cards app right not in the App Store.
