Cards app adds native iPad support, new designs

Updated

Apple’s Cards app, previously available for iPhone and iPod touch, has added iPad support alongside an iOS 6 compatibility update. Cards allows users to create professional quality greeting cards to be printed and mailed out directly by Apple through the U.S. Postal Service.

There are a number of other improvements to the Version 2.0 release, including six new letterpress holiday card designs, new layouts featuring three photos on a single card, iPhoto image sharing directly to the app, mailing of customized cards to up to 12 recipients within the same order, automatic image sharpening, and an enhanced card history view on iPad, along with improvements to address verification and the checkout process. Cards is available from the App Store as a free download, with individual cards sold at $3 including mailing within the U.S., versus $5 for international recipients.
