I love this app but I have always had issues.

The cards are gorgeous and people love getting them. I love them all. I have the holiday upgrade and use this app regularly. Now for the issues: I have had this app for probably 4 years and the calendar has never worked (and I have 4 different iDevices). That is a feature I would some day love to be able to use. I recently bought an iPad mini and this app won't send any of the cards. The screen just freezes when it comes to "send", which means I have to use another device to use this app. Also, I liked it when this app automatically put in the subject line of emails "Special delivery from Cartolina!" Please bring that feature back.

I’ve had this app for 10 years (note my review from like 2009) and I just had to pay $5 to buy back the Cartolina cards I already purchased years ago. I’m ever so happy Cartolina is back, but it annoys the heck out of me that I’ve just had to pay AGAIN for the cards I’ve already owned for a decade. WTH.

Updated Review

Thank you for listening to your customers that purchased all of your older Cartolina apps and for making the price reasonable for us to repurchase all of the designs. $14 seemed really steep for an IAP for designs but $5 is definitely in the ballpark. I appreciate this and am repurchasing all of the designs. Not sure if this is a holiday sale price but thank you for doing this.



I purchased this app years ago and it’s updated and now I must repurchase everything I already paid for. Why? Not cool at all. I loved sending Cartolina notes to my loved ones but with the 6 options and my prior purchases gone (which are included in the various “new” packs that have new additions to the packs) I won’t be using the app anymore. I won’t be paying for it twice and I won’t purchase anything Cartolina in the future. What a way to support your loyal customers, Cartolina. You lost a customer. If I could give 0 stars I would.
