When I travel I love to spend time collecting postcards so that I can send them back home to friends and loved ones. Part of the reason I enjoy sending them is to share my experience and okay ,you caught me, I also do it to brag a little. What is frustrating about this is that sometimes I struggle finding the perfect postcard that captures the moments I’ve had on the trip. Do I go with the cute puffy seal or a generic sunset? Then once I have spent several minutes combing the corner store for a postcard that is satisfactory I have to buy stamps and then find a place where I can mail it. I am often guilty of hoarding the postcards I purchase and then finding them in my bag after I have already returned home from my adventure. Who can blame me? I’m a forgetful person to begin with and when you have places to see and things to do mailing things falls to the back of your mind. If you are a forgetful traveler like me you can now take comfort in the fact that there is an app to simplify the way you send postcards.
Touchnote is an app that is available for download on Androids and iPhones. The app will not cost you a penny to download which is a relief because the last thing travelers want to do is spend extra money. Touchnote allows you to select a photo from an album that is on your phone or computer and then you can customize it to send it as a postcard or greeting card. You no longer have to pick generic photos! You can actually show your friends and family what you are doing. After you customize the image with a message on the back you can then enter the address and the app takes care of printing it and sending it for you. The price of sending your postcard varies depending on the location of its destination, but it will certainly save you some hassle.
The app is simple to navigate and even allows you to pull pictures from your Facebook. It can be used not just for sending your picture perfect moments but also for wishing people greetings on simple cards when you are far away and cannot spend the holidays or other special moments with them. In just a few moments you can construct the perfect postcard or greeting and all from the screen of your phone!
