Postino, the latest app from AnguriaLab. This mobile application lets you take iPhone photos and turn them into postcards which you can send to your family and friends. And no, they don't mean "e-cards" (although Postino supports those, too) - they mean actual, printed out, physical cards sent through the good ol' fashioned snail mail service.Are you an iPhone-equipped world traveler?

Postino is not the first iPhone application that allows you to send postcards via your mobile device. However, it's definitely the one to beat at this point. Their competitors, Go Postal and TapTap Cards, both have one major limitation: postcards can be sent to U.S. addresses only. They also don't offer an e-card option.
When you launch the Postino app, you can choose to snap a photo or choose one from your library. You're able to adjust the image by zooming in and positioning it however you want and optionally choose a frame to go around the photo. Then you enter in your message, signature, and the address of the person you wish to send the card to. If you'd like, you can also optionally draw the signature on the phone's screen using your finger so it looks more like an actual signature.
If you enter in an email address, the "postcard" is sent virtually, like an e-card. If you enter in a street address however, a postcard will be printed out on high-quality paper and mailed for you. You can even have your GPS location included in the card! The only cost to you is the price of the "virtual stamp" - $1.99 (U.S.) which is paid via Paypal.
Postino is available now in the iTunes App Store for free.
