This news release was passed to me from Sara Widness. She is always up on the latest. Even though I have a Droid and not an iPhone, I think this application may provide a lot of use for some of our readers. I send postcards, when I can find them and they actually get mailed when I can find the stamps, from all over. The only drawback I see to this application is not having a foreign stamp.

New iPhone App from World Nomads
Makes Sending Vacation Postcards Effortless and Instant

SYDNEY, Australia, Dec. 10, 2010 – Point. Snap. Postcard. A new iPhone app makes sending vacation postcards as easy as a push of the finger. World Nomads ( announces the Postcard App for the iPhone that’s guaranteed to secure travel memories on refrigerator doors.

Here’s how it works. Users simply download the free app from iTunes. Using the app via PayPal they purchase stamps (the cost of $2 per stamp works for delivery anywhere in the world). Users then snap a photo that is then turned into a postcard image. Type a message for the back. Add a delivery address and then submit everything electronically. The postcard is printed in the USA on real high-quality gloss paper, stamped and then sent to the address on the card anywhere in the world.

“It’s that easy,” explains Chris Noble, general manager of World Nomads. “The cost is comparable to locally purchasing a card and postage, but without the Post Office lines!

When making stamp purchases there’s also an opportunity to donate to one of World Nomads’ Footprints Projects that help change lives by funding community development projects that fight poverty worldwide.
