iKandl really is a two-part app. The initial app that you buy from the App Store for free is the iKandl Player. The Player allows you to select cupcakes and prepare greetings then pass or show it to the recipient. With this easy-to-use, yet handy communications tool, you need never bear the scorn of friends or family again! First of all, you can view instructions at any time by tapping the "i" information button in the lower left of the screen. Additionally, you may tap the "-" button in the lower right if you want to see your cupcake in all its glory on a full screen. Now, to begin the magnificent creation!
Tap the Cupcake button to swipe and choose from among many gorgeous, high-res and colorful cupcake graphics, all boasting a tall, lit candle. These delightful confections are covered in delectable frosting, candies, fruit, googly eyes and sprinkles (all calorie-free), so your selection will not be easy, though lots of fun! Press Done to exit that screen. Record your own greeting and then tap the Play button to hear it to be sure you are satisfied. If not then just re-record. If you are simply presenting this beautiful greeting to someone nearby, you could proudly whip out your phone and have him or her blow out the candle by breathing in the device's microphone, or touching the flame. At that moment, you will hear the candle fizzling out as well as an enthusiastic round of applause. No, the clapping and cheering is not coming from the gawkers hanging around. It's actually coming straight from within the app, and will definitely bring a delighted smile to the recipient!
The second part of iKandl is the iKandl Messenger. If you care to send your greetings by e-mail, you will need to purchase the Messenger in-app for $2.99. Your native e-mail app will appear with your iKandl greeting when you tap Send, and then will be sent on its way. However, this greeting can only be received on another iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Therefore, your recipient will need to use one of these devices in order to collect their warm and fuzzy sentiments. My wish would be to have the iKandl's greeting playable on any computer as unfortunately, many friends do not own any of the iDevices.
Regardless, this unique birthday app is one of my favorites for being able to send my voice message along with the cake. It makes my wishes that much more special to the birthday celebrant. Open up your imagination and use this lovely app for more than birthdays. How about anniversaries, graduation, holidays, or just about any celebration you can conjure. It's very flexible as you are providing the message with warm words to match the occasion. Send a beautiful and "scrumptious" iKandl now to bring joy and light to brighten someone's day!
