Daily App: PicCard helps you send a quick greeting to your loved one
Forget about Valentine's Day and want to send a last-minute greeting to a loved one? Then you should check out PicCard from SoftEase. The iPhone card-making software recently debuted in the App Store and is a quick and easy way to create a delightful greeting card.
To get started with your card, you must first chose a template, which are organized by theme like birthday, Valentine's Day and more. The app includes two or three free templates per theme. You can buy additional templates for US$1.99 via in-app purchase. Each template includes a placeholder for your photos, some text and stickers.
PicCard allows you to take photos from your camera or your camera roll and import them into the frame of the card. The app automatically aligns your photo, but you can adjust it by double-tapping on your photo. Each element in the card -- text, stickers, background image-- can be changed as needed in the card editor. When you are done with the photo, you can share the card via Facebook, Twitter or email. You can save it to the iOS photo roll or send it to another app for further editing.
PicCard is quick and easy, allowing you to create a stylish card in just a few minutes. My only critique of the app is the template library, which is small. Even after paying $1.99 for the template pack, you only have five or six choices of template per theme. If you are not particular about your theme and want a rapid way to create a cute card, then PicCard is worth the download.
PicCard is available for free from the iOS App Store.
