Back in September 2014, I reviewed an app called Postsnap. Back then, I made a few postcards from our weekend in Romney Sands, straight from my phone and sent to my mum and sister. It was so easy to do, and I loved the on-the-go aspect of the app.
Recently, Postsnap got in touch with me again, as there have been some changes since I last reviewed the app. It was so long ago, that I can’t remember how things used to look, but I’m always keen to try out new things.
With Father’s Day coming up, I thought I’d make a card for my dad. My video below shows me making the card with the Postsnap app in real time – it took me less than 5 minutes, and the app is very easy, and intuitive to use.
Tapping on the Greetings Card button, brings up a view of the best sellers, but you can also select from the different categories, and are presented with the different cards in your chosen category. In the Father’s Day selection, there was a good choice of styles and colours, as well as titles – so there was Dad, Daddy, Grandad, and some just said Happy Father’s Day, so something for everyone I think. Just tap the card you want to customise.
Depending on the style of card you chose, you can add one or more of your own images. If you have the option to customise text, you must add photos first. You can use images from several locations – your photo library, Facebook, and Instagram – as well as taking new photos with your camera, which is fab for cards on the go! Resize and move photos in the frames by pinching and zooming.
You can change the style of the card (which is the colour of the background elements), add effects to photographs, and add text – with the ability to change the font type, size, and colour, as well as formatting like making the text bold, and alignment of text.
Once you’re happy with the front of the card, you tap Next to go inside, where you add your greeting, and as before, can customise the text.
Finally, you need to send the card! You can have it sent back to yourself (with a blank envelope) or direct to the recipient. There are options to use (and save) addresses to your Postsnap address book – handy to have for future greetings cards; use your device contacts, add a new name and address (which is then saved in the app), and if you don’t know their address, you can actually send and email or text from the app to request it. Another handy feature if you’re not good with remembering addresses. I’m useless at knowing what my best friend of nearly 30 year’s address is!
You then checkout, and can pay with a credit/debit card, prepaid credit, or PayPal.
