I know I’ve said this before but I’m a closet [not so much anymore] tech geek, and love all my tech gadgets. When I was told about this new app for my Droid phone called justWink I had to try it out because you can send greeting cards from your phone to someone via text, Facebook or e-mail.
It just so happens that I downloaded justWink on my phone the day of my friend Kelly of The Centsible Life‘s birthday. I thought it was a perfect time to try it out. I sent her this one that I thought was hysterical, but it has a bad word inside so I can’t share it here. Not that I don’t use those words, I just don’t post them here.
It was easy to use and took me no more than 5 minutes to use it. There was no learning curve, or any of that feeling of scratching my head and not knowing where to find stuff. It was instant easy. I posted the justWink card on Kelly’s wall, and of course I had to know what Kelly thought of the idea of getting a card on her Facebook wall,
“I thought it was a fun and unique way to send an e-birthday card, and honestly a pleasant surprise since for so many people (me included) a simply Happy Birthday on your wall seems to suffice.”
Yay, I had succeeded in being unique. It’s something I love to do. I love when out of the ordinary things make people smile. There are 3 components to every single card that make them so much fun to send: 1) you can add 1 picture to the inside of the front page. You can use one from your gallery on your phone or even take one right there on the spot; 2) your message to the recipient with adjustment of the font size and 3) which I think is the coolest part — you sign the card. No I mean you sign the card. A white box comes up and you use your finger to sign the card. Whatever shows up in that white box is transposed to the card.
Now I am hopelessly addicted to sending greeting cards from my justWink app. I go into my the app when I want a good laugh, and just read the cards. When I come across a good one I start going through my head who would love that one. Each one has the kind of humor that I love!
I sent this to my friend Rachel because we both have a love for jewelry, and I knew she’d appreciate it.
I didn’t have a particularly wonderful day so I sent this card to my husband, and just added in the message section “this describes my day perfectly”.
I’m so glad that I have justWink on my phone now. It’s a fun way to send a little note, without being just like the rest.
