Review: Postcardly automates iOS postcard creation in a sleek, intuitive way

Send postcards directly from your photo library with a few quick taps of the screen.

Postcardly Postcards allows you to create postcards instantly with images on your iPhone, integrate your contacts, and send them with an in-app purchase, in a sleek, easy-to-use process. The app, itself, is finely crafted, the options are numerous, and the ability to send anywhere in the world is very cool. The result is an app that will be a must have on your next vacation.

Postcardly requires registration, so before starting, you'll need to set up an account. You can create a postcard before you register, but will need to sign up before you can print and send anything. Once you do, choose or take an image, write your text, and choose a contact from your list to use as an address. When all of this is done, you can go through the checkout process and your postcard will be on its way. Adding multiple addresses or creating new postcards on the fly is equally straightforward. The pricing, while high, is not bad for custom-made postcards. Because it uses in-app purchases, it is very quick, as well.

If you are going on vacation soon, or if you just like to send a lot of postcards to friends and family for the heck of it, Postcardly is a great way to do it. With customizable features, an easy-to-use interface, and loads of options for sending postcards anywhere in the world, Postcardly is a perfect companion for anyone with a lot of images and a travel itinerary.
