Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, and our little festive update to Holler Gram is now in-store.
Welcome to Holler Gram Seasons.
More screenshots below.
We're super-grateful to the illustrators and artists who responded to our last-minute request to submit a Christmas card into the app. The Christmas card by Paul Davis that we're sending out from Made by Many (physically - yes, we still do that) is in there, and Paul is joined by:
- Teacake Design and Conrad & Alex
- Alec Doherty
- Helmet Girl
- James Oconnell
- Jonny Wan
- Louise Richardson
- Richard Stricker
I should also say thank you to Mr Bingo, who also supplied a card depicting a well known terrorist leader who is no longer alive. Sadly, we couldn't include that one.
These Christmas cards replace the pre-set cards we made for SXSW in the first release. We'd love to have made a web-service to enable us to update the app with new cards - and perhaps to get some live curation of cards submitted on an ongoing basis but we ran out of time this side of Saturnalia.
This is a fairly lighthearted release. As well as the Christmas cards, there's a Rate Your Holiday view that encourages you to rate *anything* - your turkey, presents, parties, elderly relatives, massive family arguments... whatevs.
Finally, there's still a Make Your Own section, but we've created some colour pre-set palettes to protect people from themselves and added some new fonts.
We're submitting another release of Holler Gram to the store today - some other little bits and pieces including the ability to add an image or a photo (depending on what iPad you have) to the Make Your Own, and some more festive-ness.
So, we hope you have fun with it. Please let us know what you get up to. The iPhone version and another little iPhone app will be coming in the New Year.
