Tired of being misunderstood? Wish you knew what to say and how to say it better? Express Yourself E-Cards help you clarify your thoughts and feelings, and find the perfect words to communicate them more effectively.
The Express Yourself E-Cards app is an ingenious communication tool for transforming relationships. It consists of 10 carefully constructed E-Cards that address 10 different topics people have trouble talking about.
Each of the 10 E-Cards consists of a sequence of fill-in-the-blank questions and checklists. This combination allows you to create a unique and personal E-Card that maximizes your chances of being understood.
But there's more. Completing the checklists takes you on a journey of self-discovery. That means that even if you never send an E-Card, you'll benefit from the process.
Although many of the choices you’re given on the checklists won’t apply to your situation, some of them will. And those will cause an unmistakable shift in your body that says: “Yes! That’s it!” That’s the feeling we get each time we find words or phrases that match our experience.
Here are the 10 cards:
• Can I be honest?
• Talk to me!
• Please listen!
• I have a request.
• I’m loving you.
• Can you help?
• Want me to appreciate you more?
Here’s how they work.
• Pick whichever card fits the situation.
• Fill in the blanks and choose from the checklists on the card.
• Preview the card and edit it as much or as little as you wish.
• Add a photo.
• Hit Send.
• The receiver gets an email with a private link to view your card.

Will the app work for someone on the autism spectrum?
Although it wasn’t designed specifically for this purpose, the Express Yourself E-Cards app has proven to be an amazing communication tool for high-functioning adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum. For those who have trouble reading or writing, checklists can be read aloud and completed by a parent, teacher, or friend.

Ratings and Reviews
The app is genius. No matter what I'm feeling, the app helps articulate it for me. If I want to show love to my boyfriend, there's a card to get really specific about why I'm loving him. If he hurt my feelings, there's a card to explain it in a way that doesn't make him defensive. If I'm mad at my coworker, I can fill out a card and get really clear about what exactly ticked me off -- sometimes I don't even send the card; just the process of filling it out helped me understand what I needed to say. It's like having a therapist in my pocket!
The fact that there is an app for $0.99 that helps all my relationships seems impossible. But the cards are that good. Filling in the blanks of these cards has helped me understand my own brain and heart. The process of turning feelings into words that are accurate and not aggressive has transformed my fights. I never would have guessed that there is actually easily-followed protocol to help you feel understood!
For anyone that wants help saying the right thing. Two grateful thumbs up, Express Yourself Ecards!
Hones your communication skills!
Like having a tiny therapist in your pocket, ready at anytime to help us more effectively (and less stressfully) process, then communicate out emotions/feelings/needs/etc. Since as a couple we've become more efficient at working through problems and even just basic communication needs, we spend less time treading in frustrated, angry waters. More often we're able to work it out, move on and enjoy each others time and company instead.
Thorough and Adorable
These cards are so HELPFUL as I go through daily life trying to express myself. Each one prompts me to think about my feelings with more detail than ever before. I love it. And the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. My friends and family are constantly commenting on how "in touch with my feelings" I am and how "mature" I seem. It's wonderful. After I send one I feel very free. I will continue to use these as focus on greater self-improvement.
