Introduction

If you want a quick and easy way to show your friends and family that you're thinking of them the Postcard On The Run app can do just that. You'll be able to create and send postcards straight from your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone quickly and easily. You'll be able to send personalized postcards with videos and pictures, which is way more exciting than then the same old postcard everyone else is snding! This app takes care of everything for you from the printing to the delivery.

A New Day

Instead of browsing through the racks for postcards at the typical tourist traps, why not create your own postcard that really captures what you’re seeing and experiencing? Sending the postcard through this app costs between $1.99 and $2.89 which is cheaper than a card and not much more than a typical postcard. By doing it this way the postcard will be customized and really offer the recipient a fabulous and unique experience.

To  use the app, snap a photo of the sight you want to use in the card. You can then add a video greeting/message that you would typically write on the card. You are then ready to send the postcard. As an added convenience if you don't happen to have the recipient's address you can find it with the Postal Gopher that is built into the app. This feature will help you locate the address quickly and easily.

 

Not Your Standard Postcard

Anyone can send a standard-looking postcard but when you use this app it's anything but standard. Not only can you use an actual photo you have taken and include a video greeting, you can also add scent to the postcard. That's right, send it with "Smell Mail." Now your postcard is sure to stand out because it’s not every day you get a card in the mail that has scent on it.

There are additional features such as the fact you can use your credit card to pay for the postcard, you can sign the postcard using your finger, and you can send postcards to people living in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.

Users love how modern this feels. You are taking something rather bland and traditional: a postcard, and you are personalizing it and creating a whole new level of fun. The app keeps track of your projects (pending, past, and videos) so you can easily look back on them at any time.

Final Thoughts
