There's nothing like getting a postcard in the mail, whether it's to share vacation memories, birthdays, holidays, or anything else you can think of. But who has time to go buy a postcard, fill it out, get a stamp, and mail it? I know that I'm personally much more likely to send postcards if I can do it right from my phone, and that's exactly what Postcard for BlackBerry 10 does! You just select a picture, add a personal message up to 300 characters, and send it off.
Postcard is free to download, and each postcard you send costs $2.99 for delivery anywhere in the world. While some people may think that's expensive, I think it's reasonable considering you get to choose your own photo, the postcards are printed on high quality 4x6 glossy stock, and the price includes postage. I ordered a postcard from my BlackBerry Z10 and it arrived in less than a week in the US. I've heard from other users that other countries arrive just as quickly, with the UK being a little over a week, though international delivery can take up to 3 weeks.
Currently you have to enter the recipient's address and then it's stored in the app, but contact integration is included in the plans for future updates. It would also be nice to see some editing tools in the Postcard app, but considering that BlackBerry already included those in the native pictures app, it's not a huge deal to edit your photo however you wish and then select it for your postcard. I like that payment for postcards is made through BlackBerry World, so there's no need to enter any credit card info or anything. All in all, Postcard is a very simple solution for printing and mailing postcards from your BlackBerry 10 device! You can download it now at the link below.
