Weekly Travel App Roundup
Technology is here to stay, so why not take advantage?
I never leave home without my smartphone, and now I can’t even think about going on a trip without my iPad. So, I want to make sure I’ve got everything I need to get from home to vacation with no headaches.
Each month I’ll feature some travel apps that you can use to make sure you are getting the most out of technology to help you to travel.
PostagramIt may be cheesy, but I’m a fan of postcards.
When I was doing my study abroad program in the Netherlands during college, I sent postcards home for every country and city I visited. Which meant remembering to get a postcard, finding a shop that wasn’t a rip off, getting one with a cool picture, buying stamps and sending it off.
Plus I had to remember to bring my address book with me to every spot, otherwise those postcards from Dublin and Vienna, yea they were actually mailed via Amsterdam.
So, this is why I’m digging this travel app for both iPhone and Android phone platforms. Basically, Postagram allows any user to take a photo from their phone, and send it via a real live postcard to a friend back home for $.99 cents. Not to shabby, right?
Plus, you are gonna get massive bonus points for sending out postcards to all your buddies. Postage is included in the fee and your friend should get their postcard with your little message in the mail only 2-5 days after you send it out.
You can pick photos from your Facebook shots, Instagram or any gallery photos that you have taken from your phone. A perfect way to really personalize photos and give your friends and family a chuckle.
