Express Yourself Ecards - App Review
Posted on June 28th, 2017
The Express Yourself Ecard app is a deceptively simple, powerful communication tool. The ten ecards in the app help you express yourself in ten common situations where most of us mere mortals struggle to figure out what we're feeling and how to say it.
Unlike generic greeting cards, the ecards you create with this app are specific, personal, and deep. No two ecards you send will ever be the same.
After you've chosen the ecard that fits your situation, you're guided through a series of fill-in-the-blanks and checklists. At this stage you're likely to experience an "Aha!" moment or two, as you recognize your true feelings for the first time. It can feel a little like therapy, which makes sense because the app was created by a marriage and family therapist.
Once you've finished completing an ecard, the app magically creates a letter that makes you sound better than you ever thought you could. If you want to tweak it further, the app allows you to edit it or save it as a draft to work on later. You can even add a photo if you want. And the user-interface is simple and clear, right up through the moment you hit "Send."
Even a good communicator can benefit from using The Express Yourself Ecard app to talk about difficult subjects. For example, if you want to tell someone they've hurt your feelings, using the app's "Ouch" card will decrease the likelihood that they'll get defensive and increase the likelihood that you'll get heard. Sending the app's "Sorry" card will make any apology much more complete and effective. The "Can I Be Honest?" card will make it possible for you to tell the truth when you're frightened about how it will be received. And although it may be easy to say a simple "I love you," the app's "I'm Loving You" card will help you say it in a more meaningful and memorable way.
Each of the ten ecards in the app has the potential to increase your self-understanding at the same time as it increases the chance you'll be understood by the important people in your life. So if you're looking for an easy way to say something hard, give the Express Yourself Ecard app a try.
