Review: Greeting Card Maker offers a number of useful tools for creating custom cards

Create and send greeting cards to your friends and family from your phone.

Greeting Card Maker allows you to create custom greeting cards on your phone that you can then send to your friends and family by e-mail or social media. The tools included are decent, providing everything you need to create a greeting card with a custom message, a drawing of your choice, or clip art, but the dated look and feel of some of these visual elements can keep the cards from looking their best.

You can start using Greeting Card Maker as soon as you open it for the first time. You can create your own or use one of the built-in cards. There is also an option to download new packs of greeting card materials, but the free app comes with a lot of tools so that shouldn't be necessary, at least at first. When creating a card, the interface provides options for backgrounds, text, clip art, and drawing. The interface is a bit cluttered, and the options are hard to see until you place them on the card, but everything is responsive so there is no slowdown as you swap in and out different background images or colors and clip art.

Greeting Card Maker is a decent app for what it offers, but it falls a bit short in terms of visual appeal. The graphics are generic and the overall look and feel of the app are a bit unpolished with basic graphics and limited font options. If you are making something without any frills for a friend or family member, the app will work perfectly. For more in-depth projects and cards, you may need a more robust app.
