Santa’s Christmas greeting cards free
Santa’s Christmas greeting cards free (free) by pickZy
Available on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
I’ll just come out and say it: don’t waste your time with this “greeting card” app. And if the paid version is as incompetent as the “free” version which won’t let you email your Christmas cards unless you pay, don’t waste your time with that one either.
I normally don’t go out of my way to slam apps that stink; in fact, I usually don’t even bother reviewing them at all. But I’m kind of offended that I wasted 5 minutes of my life in finding out that (a) upgrading is required to get any use out of this app at all, and (b) the handling of images and decorative elements is so horrendously bad that trying to make a decent greeting card at all is more or less an exercise in futility. I’m going to repeat that for the developer: the handling of images and decorative elements is horrendously bad. No resize, no rotate. There are photo frames but you can’t stick a photo in them. Ugh.
The one thing this greeting card app does right is that it tells you right from the start that upgrading is required to send anything… and that’s your cue to delete it!
If you want to send Christmas cards from your iPhone or iPad, use Christmas C@rds.
|Visual Presentation||Passable, at least the decorative things look decent|
|Ease of Use||Terrible|
|Value vs. Price||I want my 5 minutes back|
|Overall||Dear pickZy the developer, releasing this kind of garbage makes you look really bad! Please get better at making apps and, when you do, I hope you make a lot of money from it. Until your apps are good, make them free (like REALLY free, none of this upgrading BS) and continually try to improve on them. This sage advice is my gift to you! Merry Christmas.|
