Ever since Apple introduced their Cards app, you knew there were developers out there thinking, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Instead of being bummed because of a missed opportunity, they slowly started to come out with their own versions.

Take for example, the one that I am reviewing today, named Cardmon, their version is somewhat similar to Apple’s, but definitely has some different options. I am not going to go into detail on comparing and contrasting them, and instead will show you what Cardmon is all about. Who knows, this could be a viable option to Cards. (more…)

How many times have you found yourself in this scenario: It’s a friend’s or relative’s birthday and you’re driving to the store at the last minute to buy them a card. I’m not proud to admit it, but I’ve been there more times than I care to remember. While I understand the symbolic importance of sending someone dear to me a card, I don’t believe it’s necessary to drive to the store and spend four dollars to do so.

So what’s the alternative — make a card myself? That was a feasible plan back in the days when I still wore Superman underwear (which was last week), but no, the answer is much simpler, and it’s Red Stamp. Find out more after the jump. (more…)

When the iPhone 4S was announced, Apple also introduced quite a few other products including Cards, which made everyone tilt their heads slightly to the left and say, “Huh?” It didn’t make a lot of sense to most people, but to me, I got it. I tweeted this right away:

New Cards app for iOS. My mother will buy this today, guaranteed. Make your own greeting cards on your iPhone.

Apple has sold greetings cards for a long time now through iPhoto, but this will take it up to the next step. Get ready to see lots of Apple cards in your mail this holiday season.


Some of my favorite time killers for the iPhone are relaxing card games. Talented developers have created iOS versions of just about every popular card game you can think of: poker, blackjack, solitaire, rummy, Uno, Phase 10 and a lot more!

Below you’ll find 100 apps to get your 52 card fix. You’ll find a bunch of old familiar favorites as well as some great new games you’ve probably never played.


Have you ever wanted to play a specific card game on your iPhone but couldn’t find an app for it in the App Store? Wouldn’t it be neat if you could play any game, any time, with up to three of your friends?

Enter Playing Cards, an excellent little app that gives you the flexibility and features you need to play by your own rules. Below we’ll take a look at why you would want such an app, how it works and whether or not you should buy it.
