Send a Postcard iPhone App

July 15th, 2009 by NearInteraction

Yet another task the iPhone can simplify: creating, printing and sending postcards without ever having to physically handle one. PrintYourLife.com has devised an iPhone app called goPostal, which can be downloaded to the iPhone for free. Users take a photo or choose one they’ve snapped earlier, write a message and select a recipient from their phone’s address book. The postcard is then printed and delivered via postal mail to anywhere within the US for USD 1.29.

While they may lack the personal touch of a handwritten postcard, goPostal’s missives provide a tangible and perhaps more thoughtful alternative to emailing a photo, without more effort for senders. Postal services: time to partner with goPostal or set up something similar of your own! (Related: Email a photo to send prints to friends & family.)
