Sending event invitations en masse with Evite for Android

March 29, 2012

Whoever said that invitation cards were out of style? Back in the day, if you wanted to organize an event properly, you’d have to send invitations to your guests through the mail or by personally delivering invitations to their doorsteps.

Over the years, however, the rush of modern life has made it difficult for event organizers to sit down and make personalized invitations. It’s so much easier, and faster, to send an informal text or e-mail to the invite list.

But, for those of you who want a classic touch to your events without having to purchase cards from the store, there’s an app for you. Evite is an online platform for creating, managing, and sharing event-based invitations using attractive card templates. When people started becoming mobile, Evite released an app for the iOS so that event organizers could send their invitations from their iPhones and iPads. Now Evite has finally arrived on Android to make creating and sending invitations to friends easy.

The app allows you to choose from a number of card designs suitable to your event, whether it’s a birthday party, a wedding, or just a simple get together among friends. Evite for Android supports integration with your Android device’s address book so that you can easily select as many contacts as you’d like to invite. The Evites are then sent out either by e-mail or text message, depending on the contact type.

To make things even better, Evite maintains a record of all the past and upcoming events for which you’ve sent invitations. That way, you won’t forget to show up to an event you’ve been invited to, and you won’t struggle to remember what event you were at a few weeks ago.

Though you’ll need an Evite account to sign into the app, users who don’t have one yet can easily get one from within the app. Once you’ve signed in, creating an invitation is easy. Simply tap the icon in the upper right corner of the screen to get started. You’ll then be able to either pick a card design that you like or a category for your upcoming event.

There’s a score of fun designs to choose from, and you’re sure to find a design that will match your event. Fill in the necessary details, such as the title of your event, the type, when it will be. Easily add guests from your address book and hit Send to send them all your invitation.

Evite allows event organizers to give a special and paperless touch to inviting guests over for any occasion. Evite can also show you how many of your guests responded to your invitation, as well as how many adults or how many children are going.

In case there’s a guest that decided to decline your invitation or a guest someone else invited, Evite makes sure that you’re up to date on your guest list.

If you’d like to start inviting guests using Evite’s cards, Evite for Android is available for free at the Google Play Store.

Do you still send out invitations the traditional way?  Or, have you gone electronic with your invitations?  Would you use an app like Evite to invite friends and family to your own wedding?
