I’ll be the first to admit that writing at length about one of Rocksauce Studios’ new apps may present a conflict of interest, since it would ruffle inside feathers if I said bad things about them and may raise outside eyebrows if I praised them to high heavens. Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about this since my company makes top notch apps that I love using outside of the office.
Our latest creation continues the trend of “awesome apps that everyone should download.” World, meet Card-O-Matic. Card-O-Matic, meet the world!
Card-O-Matic takes a service that’s been an internet staple for years and repackages it into a gorgeous, intuitive package that lives on your Android device. As the name implies, it’s a greeting card service, letting you customize and send all kinds of cards to your loved ones for a price that, when compared to the prices at your local Hallmark store, is dirt cheap. If you want to download the app or sample its beautiful aesthetic, you should hurry up and visit the official site.
The app itself is easy to navigate and effortless to use. Once opened, you are presented with three options: Send a Card (where you go to create and mail a card), My Account (where you login and personalize your experience) and Previous Cards (where you can view all of the cards you’ve sent in the past). Those second two speak for themselves, but the true meat of the app belongs in the first option.
Their eight categories of cards available in Card-O-Matic: Birthday, Thank You, Sympathy, Thinking of You, Holiday, Graduation, Get Well Soon and Congratulations. Each one is represented by a stunning logo (once again, check ‘em out over at the site). When you click on your category, you are given a few options for which specific card you want to send. For example, the Graduation category offers a horizontal card with more traditional art as well as a vertical card that’ll appeal to more hip family members. Birthday offers eight different options, ranging from the sentimental to the hilarious. However, Holiday has easily the most options, with eight subcategories (everything from Father’s Day to Thanksgiving), which each of those offering a selection. A few categories are a little light right now (Sympathy only has one option), but that’s what future updates are for!
Once you’ve selected your final card design, you are able to customize the interior. On the next page, you can add a message that will be printed inside the card in one of the “handwritten” fonts. Options include Nice and Neat, Normal/Legible, Pretty, Professional and Sloppy. You can also upload a picture for an additional 99 cents. From this page, you also include your address and the destination. On the final page, you enter your payment information (either your PayPal info or your credit/debit card) and then your card is ready to go!
For only $4.99 (plus a tiny shipping fee), Card-O-Matic will send your loved ones a physical card with a customized message (and even a picture). And it took you only three minuts. You no longer have any excuses about missing birthdays and anniversaries! Card-O-Matic is destined to make you into a better mother/father/son/daughter/uncle/aunt/grandparent!
