Cairo, Egypt – Just before the holidays, Ultim8Soft today is pleased to announce the release of Christmas Greetings 1.1, an iPhone/iPad universal app, considered the first of its kind, with 217 handpicked greeting messages for the holidays. Users of Christmas Greetings can send any of those greetings via SMS and email, post to twitter and post to Facebook wall. Users can also save their favorite greetings to easily access them later.

First of a Kind:
No other app on the app store contains selected greetings for the holidays that can be sent via text messages. Since Ultim8Soft realized that a large sector of mobile users spend long times each year searching for the best text messages to send to their friends and their loved ones, and since there was no other app that helps the user with that in the app store, Ultim8Soft decided to spend the time of collecting the greeting messages and creating the app for iOS users.

Handpicked messages:
Ultim8Soft spent a long time collecting greeting messages from various sources, and choosing the best ones to be added to the app. All messages were proofread, to make sure that there are no duplications, spelling mistakes, or any of any kind.

Devices that doesn’t support texting:
If the user’s device doesn’t support text messaging (like iPod touch or iPad), or doesn’t support in-app SMS (devices prior to iOS 4.0), the content of the chosen greeting is copied to the clipboard for the user to paste in his/her favorite texting/chatting app.

User Experience:
Ultim8Soft did a a lot of work to excel the experience of the user within the app, by creating its own controls for swipe and shake detection to easily navigate forward, backwards and randomly through different greetings, with smooth animations, in a way natural to all iOS users.

Thoroughly Tested Framework:
Ultim8Soft created its own framework for building content based applications, which was used for building several applications that had hundreds of thousands of downloads. All the applications created using this framework were thoroughly tested, and improvements done to any app were merged into the framework. After eight months of building, improving and testing the framework, Christmas Greetings was built with the latest feature complete bug free version of it.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.1.3 or later
* 1.0 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Christmas Greetings 1.1 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Social Networking category. Ultim8Soft also supplies a free version of the app, Christmas Greetings Free, which is ad supported, with 50 greeting messages, and without the favorites feature.
