Thank You Note iPhone App

iGiftThanks App: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

Thank-you notes are a necessary evil. No one actually enjoys writing them, but they need to be done. Most readers agree that a new mama deserves an extended time frame for sending hers out, what about an iPhone app that sends them out electronically?

iGiftThanks ($1) gives parents the option of thanking friends and family for a gift by taking a photo, dressing it up with pre-styled frames and "stickers," and then either sending it via email or posting it on their Facebook or Twitter page. The app allows users to classify gifts by occasion and keeps track of notes that have been sent. Should the electronic thank-you take the place of the traditional handwritten one?

Those of you who enjoy using this app on your phone will surely be interested in Thankuz, an upcoming Web app that allows you to send 'Thank You' notes to anyone for anything, not just gifts. Not only that, but you can also receive and track notes from others. It's fun to do, easy to use and shows you care! Feel free to send feedback to once the app goes live.

I think it is a cute idea. I do not expect a thank you note for every gift I give. If I send nieces or nephews something little for Vday or Easter I am good with a thank you text or email, but I do not think the app should replace all hand written thank you notes.

I'm a big believer in the handwritten note (and not even fill-in-the-blank ones!), but I do love Michele's idea!

No. Just no. Nothing should take the place of a handwritten thank you.

i'd love a thank you note app that helps you keep track of gifts given and received but sending one like this seems a little tacky. but, something is better than nothing!
