    helloCards 

    This e-cards for iPhone app lets you send customized greetings directly to your friends or family.

You just need to choose a design, add your own photo and message and the app will take care of the rest - until the e-card is sent out. The app contains more than 200 ready made designs for you to choose from including birthday greetings, just for fun, blank, hello, thank you, about last night, apology, and more.

    Mean Cards

    Mean Cards 

    Here's a rather weird e-card app. Instead of sending out the usual greeting cards with all the nice statements and greetings, this app will let you send statements that criticize your recipient. And why would you send an e-card that insults your recipient? Well, hopefully to help your recipients improve their lives or just as a joke. To make the explanation clearer here are the sample greetings that you can send to your recipient - you're a terrible driver, you made a fool of yourself, you dance funnny, and more.
