Have you ever had that moment on a business trip when you’ve seen something breath taking and wanted to send a postcard to a loved one but didn’t have the time to search for one and get to a post office? Now you can snap a photo and send a print to anyone in the UK from your iPhone.
Ps Postcards, the first iPhone app from London-based start-up Ocean Labs, allows users to turn photographs into high quality postcards. Simply take a picture or choose one from an ever expanding gallery of images, which includes landmarks and cute animals. Next, write a message in your choice of font and layout and add the address you’re sending it to.
When you press send, the company’s mailing house will make a print of your bespoke card and post it anywhere in the UK within three days – or worldwide within six days – for a flat price of £1.49. With a simple payment process, it is much easier than standing in line at a post office.
Unlike other, more basic postcard apps, Ps Postcards features the ability to add your location automatically and offers unique camera filters that produce better quality photos. It gives you a way to share moments that will last longer than a Facebook post.
Ps Postcards is available for a free download in the Apple App Store. To learn more, visit psilov.eu/#home.
