iKandl is a two-part app. The initial app that you download 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. Additionally, you may play with the animated candle flame by blowing on the mic, moving the device, or touching the screen. With the iKandl Messenger upgrade, when you open the app you will see a cupcake with a lighted candle. Underneath are 4 buttons (however, with the iKandl Player alone, you will see 2 buttons). The 4 options are: Cupcake-choose from a gorgeous selection of 2 dozen confections, Microphone-speak your greeting, Envelope-Mail your greeting and Calendar-See a list of friends' birthdays from your Facebook account and device Contacts list. Underneath this, find a detailed help menu denoted by the "i", while the "+" allows you to hide your menu so you can enjoy your cupcake in all its iced splendor! Now, to begin the magnificent creation!
It's so simple and easy to put your greeting together. Honestly, the hardest part will be to choose which high-res cupcake to send. There are too many yummy ones included! After your selection, record your message and then show or mail it! The recipient receives your delectable cupcake greeting on his/her iDevice and may play it immediately if having an iKandl greeting card app. If not, simply download to enjoy the sweet sentiments. Please note that the second part of iKandl is the iKandl Messenger. If you choose to e-mail your greeting, you will need to purchase the Messenger in-app for $2.99. Your native e-mail app will appear with your prepared iKandl greeting when you tap Send, and will be sent on its way.
So let's see now...you are being green by not using a paper card, saving money by not having to buy one, and pleasing the recipient of your gorgeous and timely ecard! This is simply a win-win situation. You shouldn't save iKandl just for birthdays either! It's meant to be used for all events - think "all-occasion" greeting cards! Blowing out the candle is the topping on the cake as it is so cool when you hear the fizzling out of the candle and the cheering afterwards.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Who could possibly resist the brilliantly-colored, sweet treats of iKandl sent their way with a personalized greeting and glowing candle to top it off?"
