10 best ecard apps for Android
Ecards are digital postcards or greeting cards. People used to use them all the time to send digital birthday cards and other such things over email. They aren’t as popular as they once were. However, many people still use them from time to time. It’s a nice way to spruce up an email congratulating a coworker or acquaintance on a birthday, promotion, or another big life event. Believe it or not, there are actually some good apps in this space. Here are the best ecard apps for Android.
The best ecard apps for Android
Price: Free / $2.99 per year
123Greetings is one of the most popular options for ecard apps. It houses over 40,000 greeting cards for a variety of occasions. Some examples include birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, most holidays, and more. Additionally, the service has greeting cards with GIF or video content to add a bit of extra spice. You can schedule card sending up to 60 days in advance and there is an integrated reminder function to remind you of important dates. The yearly subscription price is also very reasonable.
Price: Free with in-app purchases
CardSnacks is a reasonably good ecard app. It boasts thousands of free ecards for all kinds of occasions. This one also has a bunch of customization options, including music, GIFs, stickers, and more. Thus, it’s a bit more involved than just picking a basic card and sending it on its way. You can also buy gift cards directly from the app and attach them to your ecard. Like most, you can schedule deliveries or send right away. You do need to create an account for things like reminders, but otherwise it’s an easy app to use.
Price: Free / $1.49
Greetify is another decent spot for some ecards. This one has all kinds of events, even basic stuff like good morning or good evening. The UI is simple and easy to use, even it takes a bit to scroll through everything. The app boasts a collection of 15,000 greeting cards overall. If we had any feedback for the developer, it would be an easier way to sort through all of them. Plus, the hamburger menu is in another language. That’s not a huge deal because it doesn’t house anything except for your favorites (the heart icon). It definitely has a couple of weird things, but the greeting cards are good and they are easy to share.
Price: Free / $2 per card
Ink Cards is something a little bit different. It allows you to create, purchase, and ship actual greeting cards. The cards are printed on 5×7 glossy cardstock for around $2 each. You can upgrade to a more expensive card made of better materials. There are pre-made cards for a bunch of holidays and special occasions. You can also customize cards with your own personal touches. Sometimes people only send ecards because it’s annoying to go find a card somewhere. Well, this alleviates the problem. You simply buy the card and the company prints it and ships where you want.
Invitation Card Maker
Price: Free with in-app purchases
Invitation Card Maker is an app that lets you create invitation cards. For example, you can create a card for an upcoming BBQ. Once done, the image saves to your gallery and you can send it via text, email, or however. The elements on the card are generally customizable so you can organize stuff in the way you want. It honestly pretty well and most of the controls are self-explanatory. There are a few RVSP-style ecard apps that work well, including Invitation Maker by Nilesh Jain (Google Play) and Greetings Island (Google Play). Between this app and those two, you should be able to find what you need.
Jacquie Lawson Ecards
Price: Free / $20.00 per year
Jacquie Lawson Ecards is kind of like a boutique for ecard apps. It doesn’t have a ton of cards with only about 400 total selections. However, the app boasts hand-drawn artwork. Apparently, the artists draw the card and then they scan it, animate it, and add it to the app. The app lets you add messages with up to 1,500 characters. You can also schedule deliveries and get reminders for things. The yearly subscription is a bit pricey compared to most, but some of these cards are actually very nice looking and are tastefully done.
Price: Free / $2.99 per month / $23.99 per year
JibJab is another good ecard app. Like most, it has a bunch of ecards for a bunch of special occasions and holidays. You can share wherever you want. There is some customization. The app includes music, GIFs, and some other stuff. A few of the features requires the subscription. Some users complain about the lack of content in multiple languages. However, overall, you can find a lot of good stuff here as long as you don’t mind paying for some of it.
Price: Free / $6.99 per month / $29.99 per year
justWink is another good greeting cards app with some decent features. It has the usual large selection of cards for a variety of special occasions. This one also boasts friendly cards for stuff like LGBTQ, something you don’t see in a ton of ecard apps. The ecards in this app actually open like a real life card. You can put an image inside along with a message to customize it a bit more. It could definitely be better, but it’s a good top ten option.
Price: Free / $2.29+
MyPostcard allows you to create custom made postcards. Like some apps on this list, this app lets you create actual, physical postcards with your own photo and your own message. Pricing starts at $2.29 and that includes printing and shipping. You pick a neat photo, add a message, pay the fine, and the postcard is sent to your loved one. The app also lets you order prints of your photos if you want to. You can add on extra stuff, but it does make the price go up more.
Price: Free / $2.89+
SimplyCards is another app that lets you send physical postcards to people that you personalize. The app lets you pick from your own photos from your phone, Facebook, Instagram, or Dropbox. It also integrates with Pixabay to choose another image if you prefer. It then gives you a bunch of themes and personalization options. From there, you pay the $2.89 for each card. The company prints and ships it for you. Like MyPostcard, you can also just order photo prints if you want to for an added cost. It’s a good service and people seem to really like it.
