Postagram app turns your Instagram photos into postcards
We think this is a great tool for sending postcards to friends, especially if you're in a location where finding a post office is challenging. And the price is cheaper than the cost of buying a postcard and a stamp in many places.
Certainly there are downsides. The 140-character limit means that you can't write much of a note to accompany the picture. Also, while it does save the addresses that you enter to mail Postagrams, we'd love to see it access your iPhone's contacts to make selecting recipients and inputting their addresses that much quicker and easier. Lastly, since it won't be mailed from your location, it lacks the mystique of postmarks from faraway lands.
That said, it's still a unique image that you took and chose to share with someone. In that sense, it still maintains the personal feel of postcards.
Anyone who signs up today will receive their first Postagram for free, which is a nice way to try out the app and service. I just made my first Postagram (for free, since I signed up today) and it was quick and easy. Oddly, while their site says that the Postagram will arrive in 2-5 days, the app itself said that it would take 3-7 days. That's certainly something to keep an eye on.
Postagram is free and available on the iPhone App Store.
