But since email, Facebook, twitter, and all the other "new fangled things like that" came out, real letters and cards have gotten to be less popular. We're an instantaneous culture. I still think handwritten thank you notes are best, but for a lot of other occasions, a digital version could work too.
All the old e-card services (anyone remember BlueMountain?) were okay, but they didn't really seem to step up their game as technology advanced. That's where Just Wink comes in. It's an app that has funny/cute/snarky cards that you can send for free via email, text or Facebook. Or you can buy an actual paper card that Just Wink will mail for you! I first heard about it on We Heart This and was pretty excited, but it kind of went onto my mental back burner for awhile.... until I saw THIS:
So then I went home and downloaded the app. At first it was running obscenely slow (taking thirty seconds to open something once I clicked on it), but I think that was because I hadn't completely removed Onavo Extend from my phone (that program messed up so much stuff... grr). Now it's much LESS SLOW (like ten seconds), but still a little too slow for my taste. I prefer using the online version, but I'm still glad I have the app on my phone.
What are your favorite apps?
