Even though it hasn’t yet passed the “Asian Boobs” app in downloads, our new iPhone app has some great non-bosomy features:
-Get the newest cards as they go live (content updates every time you load the app)
-Save cards as favorites
-Enjoy all the same categories that are offered on someecards.com
-Send something obnoxious from any questionable location!
The app will be updated regularly so we’d appreciate any feedback below. For example, should we consider adding images of Asian womens’ bare breasts? (And if you like the app, please spread the word!)
Tired of people not showing up for things? With our brand new invitation system, your events will seem much more fun to everyone who still probably won’t bother coming! Here are some features:
-Turn any card into an invite (just look for “invite” tab below it)
-Find a continuously growing set of invitations for specific events (rollover “invite” in top navigation to see categories)
-You and all your guests can comment and add cards to the event’s Party Wall
TRY IT OUT AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK BELOW!
Imagine the horror we felt to learn our iPhone app wasn’t rejected for some sort of horribly off-color dildo joke. That is, unless the App Store just randomly chose three not-that-objectionable cards as examples of unacceptable content (see below). Are we really being told we can’t “defame” famous people? Even Hitler? Let us know what you think of the notification below (along with the screenshots they attached).

And here’s the response to the App Store’s email, written by The Dirty Harry of Electronic Greeting Cards and Social Gestures, someecards co-founder Duncan Mitchell.

If you like someecards.com, you’re going to feel exactly the same or better about the someecards books!

Contributors will be mostly writing for the “somewhat topical” category. Thus, the assignment: create 8 cards for the somewhat topical category in user cards. Send links to those cards in an email to email@example.com with a subject line like “my aunt loves your site and you should hire her!!!” or “writing submission.” It is due by the end of September. Thanks and good luck!
Your favorite ecards are now available on lots of things you hold, wear, hang, shuffle, and occasionally fondle. We’ll be regularly adding new cards and products to the store, so don’t panic if your personal picks aren’t available yet. And if you know someone who drinks coffee, uses a computer, or has an upper torso, don’t forget to stop by the store when you need to buy them a unique gift!
What do you want to tell the president on his upcoming birthday (Aug 4th)? You think he looks hot for 48? You don’t quite understand his health care reform? You need a presidential pardon within the next 15 minutes? Just send any of our Obama Birthday Cards with your personal message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll handle the rest. Plus, we’ll pick the best messages – based on our own random criteria – to be published here and in THE HUFFINGTON POST!
Can you imagine a world in which an “ecard” evolves beyond simple text and image? No one on god’s green earth could. Until about 6 to 8 weeks ago. So check out our first batch of “video ecards,” starring Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter! An enormous thanks to Comedy Central for all their help and hard work in getting these made. There are many more video cards to come! Now we will get back to fixing the bugs from our site relaunch that fortunately no one has taken a break from pointing out.
Does change frighten you? Us, too! So let’s comfort each other during this exciting, traumatic relaunch of someecards.com! Take time to play with and get used to all the new site features, such as:
-your own inbox of sent, received, created, and favorited cards
-dynamically built address book
-simpler/sleeker navigation of categories and holidays
-quick view and quick send of cards while browsing
-scheduled card sends
-card pickup notifications
-other things not included in this somewhat tiresome list!
Come back here to post comments about how happy, relieved, confused, annoyed, and even sexually aroused you are by the new site! We’ll read all your responses, and continually be improving the site with enhanced functionality and new features. It was your feedback over the past year that helped guide us in this relaunch – so if you dislike anything about the new site, maybe blame yourself!
For the 11 people still paying attention, someecards would like to formally congratulate Martha Stewart on her inevitable feat of reaching 500,000 Twitter followers before us. Martha ran a remarkable campaign – always sticking to the positive, barely acknowledging the event, and mostly tweeting about trees. Should anyone feel the need to directly mock us for losing, we suggest creating a card here. And if you happen to speak to Martha, please find out what she wants for winning. We’re thinking either ecards or drapes.
Sorry you were deeply and very specifically offended by a relatively unoffensive Easter card but seem to enjoy the other ones.April 10, 2009
Thanks to everyone who participated and who angrily critiqued everyone who participated! Turnout was huge – even bigger than our Valentine’s Day contest (See 3rd prize winner below for more elaborate insult). If you didn’t win, there are many more contests to come. If you’d like to make the winners feel slightly less special, you can easily buy what they won right here!*
*That is, except for the “surprise” t-shirt we previously mentioned which appears below! It will be awarded to the 1st prize winner and be available for sale next week at the usual place.
