The New Cartolina iPhone App!

We are so excited this morning to reveal the top secret project we have been working on for weeks now - the new iPhone app from Cartolina! Our app is all about sending brief but beautiful messages using one of our customizable Cartograms. Pretty up someone's inbox today with a Cartogram from the Cartolina iPhone app. Choose from the selection of designs, customize your message and then you can either email or text it to the recipient. The Cartolina app supports multiple languages, allows you to send to multiple recipients and it also includes an integrated calendar which sends you automatic reminders - so you'll never miss a birthday again. There are lots of designs to chose from - to view all the Cartogram designs you can visit our web site.
The Cartolina app is a great alternative to sending a plain email or text message. It's perfect for any occasion - or no occasion at all! For less than the price of a card, $2.99, the Cartolina app will be available next Friday - September 17th from the Apple iTunes store. I'll put a button on the side panel of the blog here next Friday with a direct link to the app store. There, the secret's out! Hope you're as excited as we are!

For more information on the app or any other Cartolina products please email me.

Thanks for such a warm response to our app. It's been a long time in the making but we are very proud of it and can't wait to have some fun making lots of different Cartograms for people to send from their phones. And don't forget that you can send the Cartograms to anyone - they don't have to have an iPhone - the fully formed Cartogram will appear in their email.
next friday I'll have a direct link to the app at the app store and we'll have some giveaways - yay, love a giveaway! Thanks all - Fiona

Nina said...

Congratulations!! I will definitely be getting this app.

Julie said...

Love these! Will they work on an iPad too? I have an iPad, but no iPhone! This may be my very first paid for app! Congrats!

Di Overton said...

What a lovely idea. I need one as I am famous for forgetting people's birthdays. However where I live we get no mobile phone signal so I am sad now.
I will post about this on Designers Block today - well done

Fiona Cartolina said...

Hi Everyone! Thanks for all the positive feedback. I just wanted to answer a few questions:
Yes Julie it has been developed for the iPhone and the iPad:-)
You can send the cartograms to anyone who gets email - they don't need to have an iPhone or even a Mac it will just show up in their email.
Yes we are going to redevelop the app for the Android phones - so many requests for it.
Yes we will design lots of new Cartograms in the future - including some gender neutral designs for the guys!!

Yay - now don't forget to buy it next Friday - I'll remind you ;-)

I sent a few to friends and quickly received them back! Now we all have the ap!

Jessica said...

I just received an iPad for Christmas! I could not wait to download your app! Perhaps the next app could be iPad wallpaper?! LOVE YOUR STYLE! Thanks for making email a bit more beautiful!

Torrie said...

Hi! Do you know when this will be available for the droid phones? I saw that you are going to redevelop, but I'm just curious if you have an estimated time frame!
