Apparently though, it isn't as slick as it first appears. But I do like that you can send a complete card postage included for $2.99 USD. They seem to have issue with the fact you cannot use iTunes account balance and have to use credit card, but that doesn't bother me too much. They also feel it is unpolished, but from what I have seen it isn't too bad. However, this is coming from someone that hasn't used it. How about you? Have you used it? If so what are your thoughts? Or have you used something similar with better/worse results?</p>

I used it and although the interface is a little clunky and the choices are slim, the service is handy and will probably make me send more cards. I was amazed when the app told me that my card would be delivered that day. I still don't know how they do that. The card quality was good and the price was reasonable. So not as good as it could be but it fills a need I didn't know I had and I don't know of any alternatives.

Married guys - stop what you're doing, take/find a sweet picture and send your wife a unexpected card. She will be pleasantly surprised.
