helloCards for iPhone Expected to Dominate Christmas Card Market

in Social Networking (E)

[prMac.com] Waretown, NJ - The 2009 Holiday season may be better financially than last year but many are still feeling the economic restraints. Luxury items, such as the traditional Christmas card mailing is out of the question for people who are busy trying to make ends meet. As a viable alternative, they are turning to inexpensive ways to send seasonal wishes, with helloCards topping the list as number one choice.

While the recession may be easing up, it's not over. Nor are the far reaching effects that it's had on the working class, who represent the majority of the population. Some may be able to afford a little more for loved ones this Christmas, however things have not bounced back enough yet for many of the traditional extras that add to the season. For that reason, the sending of cards via iPhone and iPod Touch apps has become extremely popular over the past year, with helloCards leading the pack. People appreciate paying a low, one-time fee of $1.99 to be able to send personalized Christmas cards to everyone on their list.

The climb in market share for helloCards isn't just about price. With everyone finding less and less time for themselves and their families, it is also a fast alternative to hand-writing cards and envelopes, applying stamps and going to the post office. People are able to personalize the helloCards with text and stock images or their own embedded photos quickly and easily, which is a huge selling feature. Once the card is made, it is sent to the recipient's inbox via the built-in email application.

To sample this product, there is a free version for people to try, called helloCards Lite. It works the same as the full app but has a smaller card library.
