Do you ever just want a message you can touch or hold in your hands? Something that isn’t written or read on a tiny screen? Well you might want to check out this app called Pixinote for iOS. It’s created by a company of the same name. It’s a cool new way to create printed photo messages that are professionally edited and cropped to look amazing.
User Interface and Functionality
When the user logs in they are shown a title screen that actually shows them a sample of what their finished pixinote would look like when it’s delivered. At the bottom of the screen is a button to “Join Pixinote” and a link to be able to sign in if they are already a user. The account is free to create and the app is free to download and use.

Tapping the menu icon shows a menu the has the menu choices of : “Create a pixinote”, “Sent Notes”, “Billing”, “Invite Friends”, and “Contact Us”. Create lets users create pixinotes complete with a photo and a message. Sent notes shows your previously sent pixinotes. Billing shows your currently listed credit card.
