Easter on the iPhone isn’t just about the kids. Vintage-loving adults should check out the Vintage Easter Cards iPhone app ($1.99) filled with classic Easter-themed virtual cards to send out to family and friends. That is, if you can pry the iPhone from you hopped up on sugar nieces and nephews.

Easter Scratch Card
The free Easter Scratch Card iPhone app allows you to make a scratch-off Easter card, similar to a scratch-off lottery card, that your recipient can scratch off by swiping their finger back and forth across their iPhone. You can even customize the card with personal photos. Cards can be shared on Facebook or even e-mailed to non-iPhone users who can virtually scratch their card with the click of their computer mouse.
A Talking Easter Bunny
Easter just wouldn’t be complete without the A Talking Easter Bunny iPhone app (99 cents). No, it isn’t the Cadbury Bunny, but it is a very cute grey bunny bearing Easter lilies that moves his mouth as you speak. If you have an iTouch, you’ll need headphones with a microphone to make the bunny talk.
