Smartphone app converts photos into physical postcards—and mails them, tooWish you could send that cute picture of your kids at the beach to your friends back home … but maybe in more of a classic, old-school way than as a picture message?

Enter Postagram, an iPhone and (as of today) Android app that plucks snapshots from your handset’s photo roll, your Facebook account, or your Instagram feed (click here for more about Instagram) and lets you quickly create a postcard—a real postcard—that’ll arrive in mail a few days later.

Setting up the app is simple; just enter your address to create an account, select the picture you want to send (you’ll have to log into Facebook or Instagram to choose snapshots from those accounts), compose a brief message (like “look at me, I’m on vacation!”), and add some recipients from your phone’s address book.

All set? Click the “Looks great, I’ll buy!” button (each Postagram you send costs 99 cents), and you’re all set—no stamps required. Neat.
