I’ve just found cool app to pack on your iPhone when you go on holiday. Postcards allows you snap yourself enjoying the time of your life in the sunshine, write a little greeting then get it turned into a postcard and sent to any address in the UK.
As long as you get your image sent before 4pm GMT, the postcard will be printed and dispatched that day. You can select either first class (£1.49) or second class (99p) delivery, and pay via your PayPal account. Because the cards are sent from a depot in Dorset, they should arrive much quicker than if you send them from a far-flung destination.
A word of warning though: probably best to find a WiFi hotspot to upload and send your postcard from. For the amount you’ll spend on roaming data rates, you could probably afford to get a gold plated postcard sent in a private jet flown by Tom Cruise instead.
