Retired Bookseller creates Words4Cards iPhone app

in Lifestyle (F)

[] Port Stephens, Australia - Lazy Dad Studio is proud to introduce Words4Cards 1.1 for iOS. The app gives users access to 50 sayings, quotes and phrases for each of the following occasions: Birthdays, Farewells, Get Well Soon, Condolences, Father's Day, Mother's Day, General Inspiration, Birth of a Child and Weddings. Birthdays have 5 sub categories, general, humor, naughty, inspirational and romantic. You can share these words of wisdom instantly via Facebook, Twitter and email. You can also double tap to copy the words to your clipboard to use elsewhere.

"We wanted to do something more than just provide handy inspiration for social occasions though," says Field. "It was Ian's idea to come up with the 'shake for random' feature' and it adds a fun element to the app. At a dinner party recently I saw a group of adults passing a phone around, shaking it like crazy and roaring with laughter at the quote each one came up with. Its kind of like Magic 8 ball for grown ups."

The original idea was simply to provide words, quotes and phrases appropriate to various social occasions for blank paper cards but the idea snowballed along the way. There is also a 'favorites' folder for those gems people use regularly or don't want to forget. The iPhone app is a native iOS app, designed to load quickly. The library is stored in the iPhone so it can be accessed without being logged in to the web. Field and Reid decided to form a company, 'Lazy Dad Studio', so they could produce more software in the future. They have recently created an eBook version of the Words4Cards app as well which is available via Amazon's Kindle platform. A free 'limited features' version of the Words4Cards app will be available shortly, as well as versions for iPad and Android.

* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 6.1 or later

Pricing and Availability:
Words4Cards 1.1 is $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category.
