A techie way to send a traditional postcard

Here’s a clever way to combine the modern with the traditional.  Not that long ago, if you were travelling you would buy a postcard and send it to your family and friends back home to make them feel jealous/keep in touch while you are away!

Now there’s a techie way to do the same thing.  The Postcards app from Australia Post lets you use a photo taken with your iPhone, iPad or iPod and convert it into an actual postcard, which will then be delivered within Australia or overseas.  The message on the back of your postcard will even be converted into a handwritten-style font.  This would be perfect for keeping in touch with the non-techie or elderly relations back home.

It costs $1.99 to deliver anywhere in Australia (even if you’re sending it from overseas), and $2.99 to any international address.  You can pay with MasterCard, Visa or PayPal.

The Postcards app can be downloaded for free from the App Store.  If you are downloading to an iPad look for it under the iPhone apps.
