Even though Christmas is the time to be with your loved ones, you will probably be unable to meet everyone you care about. Sending them a Christmassy SMS may seem mundane and a tad impersonal, while sending a holiday greeting instead might be a better solution. Fortunately, you can now do so directly from your smartphone without too much of an effort. In case you're interested, here are the best apps for picking up or creating holidays greeting cards.
One of the very few greeting apps designed specifically for the winter holidays, Touchnote will not only allow you to create personalized greeting cards, but will also print them and send them to the receiver's home. Furthermore, the application allows you to choose from a wide variety of designs and, what's really cool about it, is that you can even use your own photos in the greeting card or postcard that you're creating. As far as I know, the service makes worldwide deliveries, uses high-quality paper and all the cards are coated with a gloss laminate.
justWink Greeting Cards
A really cool app for those who don't like traditional things, justWink Greeting Cards lets you be unique in your own way. The application offers many categories to choose from, so you can use it on other occasions as well, not just for Christmas. As far as the personalization options go, you can include your own pictures, handwriting and text messages. Once you're done creating your greeting card you can send it via SMS, MMS, Facebook or email.
Free Valentines Greeting Cards
Also known as Lovebug, Free Valentines Greeting Cards, doesn't exactly sound like something that you would want to be using for Christmas, but you're in for a surprise; the app includes a winter holidays category with some very nice card choices. The best part about this application is that you have tons of items to choose from. Unfortunately, the downside is that the ads can get really annoying and that it doesn't offer that much in the way of customization options.
Lastly, Cards Gallery is great for those who want a non-generic greeting card. I'll admit that the application doesn't offer as many variants as the other ones on this list, but the amount of templates that you get is still decent. On the plus side, the customization options available are quite extensive as you're able to embed one or more pictures into the greeting cards as well as text messages. Moreover, if you aren't satisfied with the amount of templates in the free version, you can always choose the premium one and get more cards.
