Everyone knows I am such a technophile– if there is an app for it, I’ve probably got it. This is why I think the new app Ink Cards is perfect for couples who engage through technology with family and friends.
Why not share your BIG news a little more physically this year, instead of announcing it on Facebook or sending a mass text message. Try sharing your news with a cool new app!
Ink is a card app that marries digital with snail mail. You can customize and mail unique Save the Dates or Announcements straight from your phone. You can add your own photos, special notes, and other personal touches with just a few clicks, and then a few days later a totally custom card arrives in the recipient’s mailbox! Best of all, you can skip a trip to the post office and let Ink Cards take care of all postage, printing, and shipping.
Ink Cards is all about making your wedding planning even easier. All of your sent cards are saved, just in case you’re in line at the grocery store and realize that you forgot to notify Aunt Marjorie about your wedding- just open the app, pull up the card on your phone and send away. Once addresses are entered they are saved, so sending Thank You notes from a beach during your honeymoon is an absolute breeze.
It’s the perfect new way to share the big announcement or even send your save- the- dates for the bigger day! Here is a great video showing you how it works:

So we all know I’m a huge fan of cocktails. Okay, granted. When I received a copy of Cocktails HD for Martini II (my iPad…yes, it’s named) from Pocket Cocktails, Inc., I was ecstatic. Cocktails HD is the best bartending app ever and has completely replaced all of the apps I had before.
The high impact colorful design is perfect for entertaining, but also helps me with work as I go through its vast library of cocktails for research for events. It is informative: it provides history, detailed recipes, ideas to tweak and more. I love that the images give such great ideas for garnish and design, too. You can tag drinks as favorites as well as use the Sommelier which has 100 food/wine paring suggestions. If you’re feeling daring, you can even “shake it up” (literally) for random drink suggestions.
All drinks are grouped by category: martinis, classics, summer, tropical, creamy, shooters, warmers and a section of non-alcohol drinks for kids of all ages. Engaging introduction text and tips accompany each drink which allow you to experiment with drink variations and learn interesting trivia about the tremendous range of cocktail content. The in-depth Bartender’s section includes tremendous information with tips and tricks on how to use bar tools, garnish drinks, muddle and layer, make purees, create spirals, wedges, boats, flags, zests, and much more all in spectacular full color. Create and serve drinks like a pro!
This app is well worth the investment! Enjoy!
