After the unleash of the iOS 5 and iCloud, Apple introduced the discharge of CARDS software within the App Retailer unlock. Which you can have an actual map with you and put together and ship fee straight away out of your iTunes credit score. The benefit over different mapping purposes is that this doesn’t have to return to the opposite, exterior fee strategiesEven inside the borders price to ship a card with Playing cards all the time $2.ninety nine inside the US, and $four.ninety nine internationally.


The new amount is in the order of payments iTunes. Or in an app-app purchases around this price level always consumes  $2.99. This intermediate step was not there yet.Above all, the amount shall be alarmingly high.  

Cards for the application to use it is important that you get to the settings except for the photo album feature location, location consents to the cards themselves. Otherwise the application an error message and you can not photo. Cards has a total of 21 different designs of cards. All of them are rectangular, and the majority of them uses the opportunity to make a picture to work.
