The holidays are near, and I’m betting that many of us have wouldn’t mind getting an Amazon gift card as a present to buy something that we’ve had our eye on. Well now Amazon has an app to make sending those gift cards super easy.
Amazon today launched a new app called “Surprise! by Amazon” that lets you easily send an e-card along with a digital Amazon gift card to a friend or loved one. The app lets you send a quick card, like for a birthday, holiday or anniversary, or you can personalize it with a photo, video, audio message or handwritten signature. You can also select an animation to simulate unwrapping your gift.
Surprise! by Amazon can also help you keep track of upcoming occasions. You can sync occasions from Facebook, your calendar or your contacts, and your occasions will automatically sync with Amazon’s Friends & Family Gifting service.
Surprise! by Amazon is available on iOS, Android and the Amazon Appstore. The app is a simple one, and yeah, its sole purpose is to make it easy for you to send Amazon gift cards. Being able to add photos, videos and signatures is a nice touch, though, and using Surprise! is easier than navigation Amazon’s app or website for buying a gift card.
