CardTruth would be a social gifting and communicating platform that would allows you to send a video or written message to someone on Facebook. You also have the option to send a gift along with your message! This new online social gifting and sharing platform that brings video, gifts, and friends together. All you need is a Facebook account – which, most likely, you already have and CardTruth – which is free to use!
How Windows Azure will be Used
We’d use Windows Azure for Networking, Business Analytics, Messaging, Caching, Identity, High-Performance Computing (HPC), Media, Commerce and SDKs for our product. Azure would also help us in scaling our database and applications on demand.
Paper and plastic might degrade or get lost, but a digital card won’t. In the digital age, we help in creating digital memories – the ones that will last forever! This is where CardTruth steps in.

The idea popped up while a friend of mine was sitting in a coffee shop and was smitten by a cute girl passing by. He asked me if there could be a simple way to get in touch with her and let her see my gift/message online. The concept looked intriguing and fun and we went on developing it further to apply to business and group gifts.
