The popular snail mail app Postcard On The Run is finally available for Windows Phone. This clever service has developed a cult following with its iOS and Android apps, and we can see why.
The main point of Postcard On The Run is to create a custom postcard with your smartphone. You can use photos from your phone, include a unique message, and more. The Windows Phone version also includes the new Aviary Photo Editor tools, which lets you edit your photos on-the-fly before sending your postcard on-the-run. Once you're ready, enter in the address (or use public databases to find it) and then pay between $0.99 and $1.69 with any major credit card. Here's an excerpt from the app description:
