App Review: Lifecards


Lifecards successfully breaks the monotony of regular emails and picture messages to convey that special message!


– More than 350 templates in 20 categories with more to come.
– Up-to 4 photos per template.
– Control scale, position, and rotating of photos.
– Control alignment, color, size, and font of text.
– Complex visual engine allows free pan and zoom while manipulating card.
– Automatically adapts to landscape and portrait mode.
– Save cards to finish them later
– Automatic save and restore when you exit and reenter the application
– Change templates without changing contents

Lifecards is great way to share what your are thinking, doing or dreaming about. It has a very intuitive interface which makes creating your Lifecard very easy and an enjoyable experience.

Once you select ‘Create new card’ you are presented with various categories (Beach, Filmstrip, Winter and many more) which further have different themes. After you’ve selected your theme, you get various customization options.

Customization options include:

  • Text (Alignment, Color, Size and 19 fonts which you can preview)
  • Add picture from Photo Album (Pan/Zoom/Rotate)

At this stage if you feel you are not happy with the theme you can still change it without losing your text and pictures you just added.

When you feel you’ve got what you wanted tap save (you are presented with a preview) tap save again and there you get two options, either to save for later use (re-edit later) or Export to Photo Album. After you’ve Exported to Photo Album you can exit the app and email the card you created.

The entire interface from creation to completion of the card is very well thought and implemented.

Lifecards will certainly make your friends feel jealous of your iPhone/iPod touch.

Price $2.99

The Good

  • A lot of customization options
  • A very structured interface

The Not So Good

  • The resolution of the card is a bit low

  1. When school is over in June, I’ll be off for a trip of a lifetime to the South Pacific, with a new iPod Touch and a digital camera. I keep my photos on the Touch, and Lifecards will let me spruce up my photos and send them as postcards (I LOVE postcards, I collect them in my travels!). This will be my first international trip in 20 years, Lifecards is one app I want with me!

  2. Who wouldn’t want LifeCards that go everywhere with you and fit into your pocket?

  3. I think i would want this app because I cannot buy any apps at the moment. My friends would really have fun with this app on my iPhone, and alot of other things! I have also been looking for a app like this.
