Postino aims to bridge the digital and physical divide. It allows you to snap a picture and send it as a postcard, either over e-mail or as a real piece of paper. Just take a photo, choose a frame, add a custom message if you like (even “sign” it by drawing with your finger), and send it off. If you want to send it via snail mail, you purchase a virtual stamp right from the application ($2 for a single one, but they get cheaper if you buy a package of several) and your card gets printed out on high-quality paper and sent anywhere, worldwide, without any further action from you.
