Send real postcards to anywhere in the world
Touchnote Postcards Review
by on August 21, 2010
This app enables you to send real postcards to friends anywhere in the world, ideal for those ‘saw this and thought of you’ type moments.
Your first postcard is free, but subsequent ones will cost. Unfortunately, like so many Nokia apps, it frustrates from the start – ‘do you want to use your data connection.’ Well, yes, otherwise how is it going to send anything?
The app is surprisingly accomplished and you won’t need to feel your way through it – there are three clear and basic steps to making a postcard.
First, take a picture with your phone’s camera or by browsing from your gallery. It will warn you if the picture is too small. You then adjust the photo’s position on the screen with your finger and click Next.
Compose the message you want to and then click Send – simple as that! Buying more credit is a little more difficult though as that works through the standard Nokia browser.
For one thing, the browser is terrible (no, I don’t need to specify how I want you to connect for the fourth time, thanks). Then, you’re offered to buy two, four or six postcards and expected to make a choice without actually seeing how much it’s going to cost you!
You can, however, pay for the cards on your mobile bill which is clever, but you need to sign in to do that – all in all a tedious process. Still, the idea and basic execution are at least sound.
