Send a *REAL* postcard from new cameraphone app

 

Whether you’re backpacking in Bali or camel trekking across the Sahara, this new Postcards app captures your image on iPhone and android smartphones, sending it to the folks back home by conventional post, yes a real, proper post card!  How cool is that?! And best of all this brand new picture postcard service is provided as a free download by eCards Media (www.ecards.co.uk/postcards). 

We all know what it’s like trying to choose the best of a bad bunch of cheesy post cards, well not anymore, no stamps or searching for a postbox either. Your personal holiday snaps are transformed into traditional picture postcards and mailed home at the touch of a button. This is already one of the Apple website’s top 30 apps in their ‘free stuff’ travel section

How does it work?

The free ‘Postcards’ download lets users take a photo or upload from their library and input text to family and friends. It costs 99p to send second class and £1.49 to send first class postcards anywhere in the world, processed via PayPal.

The worldwide postcards are sent to a printing firm in deepest, darkest Dorset via file transfer protocol (FTP) at 4pm every day. They are then run off using state-of-the-art Xerox printers and collected for dispatch by Royal Mail at 5.15pm the same day.

So whether you’re on top of a rollercoaster, celebrity spotting in restaurants or sending out pictures of your newborn baby, the Postcard app is a great way to share news with mates.

It’s a great little app and I’m deff going to try it out on my summer hols!! Will somebody send me one please?
