Postcard App has stamps licked

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

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
