Bill Atkinson PhotoCard 5 is now available free from the the iTunes App store. With it you can make custom postcards using my nature photos or your own photos, and send them via email or by post using a print-and-mail service that I run myself. The last three years of my life have been dedicated to saving the tradition of printed postcards. Our emails, text messages, twitter, facebook, and Google+ messages are great for their convenience and immediacy, but they scroll off way too fast. The printed postcard offers a tangible feel, an ongoing presence on a fridge, and a lasting memory in a shoebox. We can use modern mobile technologies to make it easy and convenient for people to create and send high quality one-of-a-kind custom postcards. Runs on any iOS device: iPad, iPhone, iPod touch. No Android version yet.

Yay! Bill Atkinson PhotoCard 6.0 is now available for free download from the App Store. It supports iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, and includes many new features including sharing postcards to Facebook and Twitter. I have been working on PhotoCard for three years, and each new version gets better and smoother. Enjoy! http://bit.ly/a1Duy7
