Ratings and Reviews
Such an underrated app!
I have written reviews for maybe 5 apps and this is one that I came to do on my own - the app never requested or pestered me to come write a review; the experience has been that great for me. I have sent at least 10 cards so far and I have never been disappointed. This is a really creative way to connect with people and I think every part is truly incredible. From favoriting the artists you like most, to choosing the kind of handwriting that will appear on the card, even picking confetti or pictures to add, and many more options to really make the card unique. The cards have always been sent out within a day of ordering, and my recipient received quickly thereafter with no issues. I’m pretty sure the first card is still completely free, so you have nothing to lose! Send a card to yourself, send one to someone else just because. Once you see the options available, there’s no way you won’t be able to find something that makes you think of someone special.
So I’ve been ordering cards on here for a while now and although I’ve received beautiful cards from artists who actually try, I’ve also received cards with little to no effort; with just writing. No drawings, no designs, nothing. (Crazy, because I made requests through the app.) This has now happened to me twice. If you’d ask me a week ago what I would rate this app, I would give it a 5, no problem (I usually buy add ons as well! The envelope, and pictures.) But my recent experience involving a “holiday card” and a particular “artist” really made me upset. 15 dollars for just words on a card? No designs on the added feature I purchased? (Envelope) Seriously?I’d rather give that money to an artist that went all out for me and listened.
My holiday card will now have to be given late because there is no way I’m going to hand what I received to the person. It’s the freaking holidays, and it’s for a very close friend! So disappointed.
TLDR: The quality of the cards will not be consistent, it seems like some artists will consider your requests and others will not. Don’t let that discourage you from getting the app though, it’s made me smile and laugh along with my loved ones many times. And you know it’s a good card when they call you smiling instead of texting emojis.
Great but bugs
This app has lots of bugs in it... at least on the iPad version of this app. Bug #1 is that is doesn’t save your work as you are creating the card. We spent an hour typing up the perfect words for our card, choosing the recipients, choosing our extra mailing options, and typing notes for the designer... but then we had to leave the app to go into a few other apps. When we came back into Punkpost, all of our work was completely gone. As if we had never done anything at all. Terrible. Bug #2 is that no matter how many times we chose “Elegant” as our writing style, the app always reverted our card back to “Formal”, even after we submitted the card. Bug #3 is that no matter what we do, the app will not let us pull in the addresses of our contacts from our iPad’s contacts app. Punkpost shows us the names of our contacts from the iOS contacts app, but then it always gives us an error when we try to bring any of those addresses into Punkpost. Bug #4 is that once a card is sitting in your outbox and you simply want to review it, the app always tells you that you are going to discard the card altogether if you try to close out of the card. We just wanted to view the card, but now we can’t close out of it without discarding it altogether!
