iGiftThanks an iPhone App

I’m pretty good about sending “Thank You” notes for gifts.  It might not be right away, but they eventually get there.  I always sending them after birthday parties and Holidays.  I love finding the perfect stationary, and I might be a slight stationary hoarder.

But seriously, I’m REALLY crunched for time right now.  I live and breathe for my iPhone, and all of the multi-tasking that I can do from it.  I love the camera on my iPhone4.  I really don’t even use a point and shoot camera anymore because of how clear my photos are with this phone.  I also love the e-mail functions, and the fact that I can store all of my contacts with their addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses in one place.

My friend, Ciaran, recently released an app for the iPhone which is for “sharing your love and thanks anytime”.  iGiftThanks takes your photos, and adds a decorative frame to them.  You can then e-mail, MMS, Facebook, or even Twitter out your “THANK YOU” to friends, family, or whomever.

On Christmas Morning, I sent the following e-mail to my husband’s grandparents:

Great Nana and Great Papa,

Thank You so much for the Lego City Fire Station.  I love it and I can’t wait to build it!


Angry Kid (His Real Name Was Written, Obviously)

I included this photo on the e-mail with the frame from iGiftThanks.  I think that it was really cute, and it really captured the holiday and the moment.  I sent it via my iPhone within minutes of taking the picture.  Of course, Angry Kid opened even more presents after that. I still have some other messages to send.

Our friend, Karen, gave Angry Kid some great footie pajamas on Christmas Eve.  He changed his outfit at least three times Christmas morning, but he was wearing the pj’s at one point.  I sent a text message to Karen’s daughter with a photo via iGiftThanks also.

I love how easy it was to use this app.  I’m all about the ease of use, and instant gratification from my iPhone.  Ciaran knows people like me, she is also an avid iPhone user.  And really for $1.99 you can’t go wrong.

iGiftThanks can be found in the iTunes app store and has a one time cost of $1.99. Get it now! I’m sure you have some Holiday gift opening photos that you took on your iPhone.  Use this app and send your Thank You notes now!

Disclosure:  This is a review of the iGiftThanks app.  I paid for it with my own money.  Yep, Ciaran may have bribed me a soda in the future.  But really, I am lazy and this is perfect for lazy, I mean “really busy” people like me.


Those of you who enjoy using this app on your phone will surely be interested in Thankuz, an new Web app (currently in beta) that allows you to send ‘Thank You’ notes to People, Places and Things for thoughtful Gifts, kind Acts and heartfelt Expressions. Not only that, but you can also receive and track notes from others. It’s fun to do, easy to use and shows you care! Feel free to send feedback to http://thankuz.com - Thank Uz
