As we all know the world has gone app-mad, there’s apps to track your sleep patterns, apps that let you pretend to drink a digital beer on your screen (um, seriously, go get a beer and drink it like a normal person, you can’t drink a screen), apps to waste time, apps to keep from calling your ex when you’re wasted, pretty much everything has an app.
However I’ve found one that’s truly, properly useful – particularly for travel nuts like me..
Introducing Touchnote, an on-the-go postcard-maker that works from anywhere you can wrangle 3G coverage and uses the photos taken on your iPhone.
I saw @mashable tweet about Touchnote and clicked on the link, after downloading the app I decided to test it out.
The entire postcard creating process takes 4 screens from photo to posted and once you load in credit card details you’ll never have to worry about pawing through faded old 1970′s photos in a hard-to-find post office wherever you are.
For $.99 USD your card will be sent at 9am the day after you order it and from my little experiment (a card to my mum in Seattle) it takes about 10 days to arrive.
So next time you’re ‘beached as’ and can’t be bothered bustling your sunburnt butt to a stinky post office on an island somewhere, snap a shot of your sand-coated tootsies and shoot it off to all your friends and foes back home, jealousy was never so easy to induce!
