Postcard App has stamps licked

Wish you were here with me and my phone!

Top three mobile application threats

Postcards that take longer to return from holiday than the sender are a pain for those of us who observe the age-old tradition of holiday hellos.

Postcard App

Not to worry. eCard Media, a firm based in Devon, has the solution. The Postcards App, a free download, allows holiday makers to create their own postcards through an iPhone or Android device.

You upload an image and write a personalised message. Details are forwarded by FTP at 4pm each day to a printing firm in Dorset. Seventy-five minutes later, the cards are printed and collected for international dispatch.

In a two-month trial, 18,000 holiday-goers sent such postcards and the App already sits comfortably in the top 30 "free stuff" of the App Store travel section.

Processed through PayPal, a postcard sent to the UK costs 99p, and £1.49 when sent overseas.

Let us know what you think.

Answers on a postcard, please
