bizologie Favorite Apps: Simply Postcards

One of our new favorite apps is Simply Postcards. This app lets you "mail any photo as a real postcard, right from your mobile device".  Pure genius. We all love getting postcards in the mail, but sometimes sending them can be a hassle when you're away on vacation. Now all you have to do is snap and send. No shopping for postcards or tracking down stamps when you're in an unfamiliar city. And now instead of a pic of the Eiffel Tower, you can send a pic of YOU in front of the Eiffel Tower! All you do is write your message, enter the address and for about a dollar, you can send your picture anywhere in the US (International addresses are a bit more; around $2). Simply Postcards will print and stamp your postcard the day you create it and mail it the next day. You can also add fun borders to your card. They've got borders for all sorts of occasions like birthdays, thank yous, Valentine's Day, and Christmas. You'll also find general travel ones and one that makes your photo look like a Polaroid picture.

The app is free to download and is available for iPhone. Never fear Android users, their site says that the Android app is coming soon.
