Share Your Feelings

Launching Felt presents you with every one of the readily available welcoming cards in a scrollable list. It’s not always the simplest means to browse, specifically as all the cards at the top of the list when I was experimenting with Felt were for a holiday I do not celebrate. It hadn’t been right away apparent how I could more effectively have a look at the cards offered, but I lastly discovered the little arrow sticking out from the left side of the display. This takes out the menu of card themes.

There are not a lots of various types of cards. There are a few birthday and thank you cards, in addition to cards for whatever the next holiday occurs to be. Down at the bottom of the list you’ll find some cards with textless fronts and then the catch-all miscellaneous section. These topics will cover many of your card-sending demands, and when you need a non-birthday card, there’s most likely a textless one that will do the trick.

Once you’ve actually selected among the cards, you’ll enter your message on the inside. I understood that Felt printed handwritten messages, however I assumed you entered your message up, and it was printed up in a handwriting font. Exactly what Felt actually does is both much better and worse than that. You pick from three colors of ink and 2 pen ideas and write the message yourself, in your very own handwriting. That’s remarkable and produces a truly individual card, however I am not the best at writing on the iPad, so I ‘d practically prefer a typing choice. Exactly what Felt does is actually good, do not get me wrong, I was just looking forward to no longer having to subject my enjoyed ones to my horrible handwriting!

Unfortunately, there’s not a substantial option of cards. You are not visiting have dozens of birthday cards to check out, as well as the option of “just because” cards is small. One glaring noninclusion from where I was sitting was the absence of sympathy cards. Those can be so hard to buy, and I commonly do not live near the recipient to hand provide a sympathy card. A bigger range of all cards would rate, and ideally Felt will expand their selection in the future.

Message in a Bottle
