In the age of instant communication through e-mail, chat, text message or social media, there is something elegant about the idea of a thank-you note. Thank You Note from Pete Marshall takes that simple act and streamlines it with an app that is simple to use and takes full advantage of the features of the iPad and iPhone. The interface offers minimal options -- just a handful of predesigned templates that you can add a picture and some text to and a few options to send your message, but the design and execution are sublime.
Thank You Note is a free app for any iOS device running 6.0 or higher. So it works equally well on an iPhone or iPad and requires few outside resources. The free version comes with only two templates for thank-you notes -- you'll pay either 99 cents for a single additional template or $4.99 for all 16 additional templates. When you tap any one template, you can add a photo from your photo library or take a new photo with your camera. You can then type the text of your thank you note and either save the note to your drawer or share it through Facebook, Twitter, or by e-mail. You can also choose the color and style of font of your written text.
While the price point for additional templates is a bit high, everything else about Thank You Note is a winner. This is a clean, easy-to-use app that works seamlessly on any iOS device and allows you to send personalized notes to your contacts. We found it to be glitch-free and filled with charm at nearly every level. If you are eager to use your phone or tablet to send thank-you notes, look no further than this app.
