Look, I’m old school. I listen to hits from the 70s and 80s. I still like to read actual physical books, where you get the pleasure of turning pages, using bookmarks, and placing them on a shelf when you’re finished. Most of all, I like to send and receive handwritten cards and letters. The personal touch means even more today, because, let’s face it, it’s so much easier to text “how r u?” (and add a smiley face).
ThankYouPro will meet you halfway in your quest for the personal touch. Somewhat similar to the fairly basic Cards app by Apple, this app is also free, and lets you create high quality thank you notes, totally customizable on the front and inside. It costs $2.99 (or less) to have your card mailed anywhere in the world (in a professional envelope, first class, within 24 business hours). Very cool, very affordable and very easy. My favorite detail is adding your signature, which you create with your finger on the app’s blank signature screen. Just choose your ink color and sign away, a personal touch which the Cards app doesn’t offer. Love that! You can choose from among 20 or so template designs, or make the card truly unique with your own photos, or any image at all.
Whether or not it takes the same amount of time to just write out and mail a physical card is arguable, but with ThankYouPro, all the cards and postage are conveniently in your pocket, ready to be sent instantly, anytime, from anywhere. If this is as personal as the future allows, we could do a lot worse!
