Keeping in touch just got a whole lot easier and more fun with JustWink, an exciting new way to send personalized greetings using a free mobile app or online interface.

Over the years, electronic cards and Facebook messages have become the most common way to send a Happy Birthday or Congratulations note. However, a Facebook wall post can be a bit impersonal and many e-greetings can be grating with music and flash movies that go on and on. So annoying, in fact, that I’d all but given up on the e-card method of keeping in touch with friends and family. Until now…

I recently downloaded the free JustWink app to my iPhone and I’m 100% hooked! Not only does it offer a huge variety of cheeky, fun, and memorable greeting cards, but there are multiple ways to personalize them including photos, messages, even a handwritten signature. Creating the perfect card takes just a couple of minutes before sending via email, Facebook, Twitter, text message - even real mail. The best part? The finished product offers an experience similar to opening an actual card - no music, movies, or other distracting displays. Just a heartfelt message that is sure to bring a smile to the recipient’s face.

Here are some screenshots of a card I created, complete with a photo, message and signature. You can view the finished card here.

Friends and family, you’ve been warned: I’m officially addicted!




justWink is an awesome collection of greeting cards that feature bold colors, adorable illustrations, and witty copy for every occasion.
