Digital cards have almost replaced greeting cards we used to sent via snail mail. With just an iPhone, you can create beautiful greeting cards for a variety of occasions, with nothing more than a favorite photo and an app like PicCard.
PicCard, like the Valentine Card Maker, is a simple, elegant digital photo card maker. The app lets you create digital greetings and send them to your friends and family without sweating it out on some sophisticated software like Photoshop. If you’ve got an iPhone/iPad, you can create beautiful, heart-felt photo cards and share them instantly.
PicCard is designed more or less like any conventional digital photo card maker. It comes with a set of templates (a large set) that can be customized with a lot of things like text, background, stickers and of course the photo that you pic. Once you are done editing a template to create your photo card, you can easily share the card via email, social networks, message etc.
If you’ve used any digital card maker on the iPhone, PicCard will come as an easy alternative. And if PicCard is the first card maker you’re using, you’ll find that creating beautiful cards is as easy as it can get. With ready-made templates that come with beautiful colors and interesting designs, you can get started instantly and be done with wonderful picture cards in no time.
PicCard comes with card templates arranged seasonally/occasionally: you have card templates for New Year, Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s, Birthday, Thank You, Wedding, Love, Travel and Baby. In the free version of the app, you get about 2 free templates from each section. The rest are locked behind a $1.99 in-app purchase which not only unlocks all card templates but also gets you free updates for life.
From amongst the things that you can customize, you can add/customize:
- Text (pick from a range of colors and patterns, add shadows, etc.)
- Stickers (choose from dozens of stickers themed according to the occasion)
- Background (you can change the background of the card even though each template comes with a pre-selected background)
- Pattern (change the pattern of the frame/border around the photo)
PicCard can both pick from your camera roll or click a picture and use that in the photo card. You can create instant photo cards on the spot.
PicCard is a free app but you’ll need to purchase a $1.99 Template Deluxe Pack to unlock all the templates.
