It's always nice to receive a greetings card to say 'Happy Birthday', 'Congratulations', 'Get Well', or 'I love you', and printed cards that add a name are increasingly popular. But a musical greeting that includes not only a name, but details specific to the receiver, or a completely bespoke message... that's unusual, and unheard of in the quality and price range that the AcoustiCards iPhone app offers. And all this without an ad in sight. AcoustiCards users just select the song they'd like to personalize, answer a few questions about the recipient, and in seconds they hear a unique song, freshly made, which can be sent on as an email, via Facebook, via twitter or in a text.
AcoustiCards are bringing cheer around the world, to folks like comedian Marcus Brigstocke ('Wow!! For me!? But how? That's awesome") to singer Tom Robinson ("This made me smile") and leading technology commentator Adam Engst ("I found a huge grin breaking out on my face as I listened to my song... Give it a try!")
The AcoustiCards app has been developed by award-winning Hertfordshire-based radio producer, Paul Arnold. He was facing some tough a couple of years back when he decided to throw his money and energy into creating a unique personalized musical greetings app. Paul brought his skills in audio production, music and interactive projects together to create AcoustiCards, an iPhone and iPad app that seamlessly mixes hundreds of options into its songs.
Paul says, "Having an idea for an app, is in many ways, the modern equivalent of having an unfinished novel in a drawer somewhere. To see the smile on people's faces when they get to a line in the song that is perfect for them - that makes it all worthwhile."
AcoustiCards is growing and welcomes ideas for songs, or approaches from a singer or a band who would like to be involved.
