    I love this app! So does my faraway family who gets the cards! Excellent prompt customer service by email after nondelivery due to MY error in address. Retrieved contact info from my Nokia 625 no prob. Uploads photos as is, so try editing prior! Haven't yet used video or scatch n sniff but like the concepts. Overall strongly RECOMMENDED

    Location data error...

    Concept is great but parts of this are clunky and it hasn't been updated at all. Like searching for an address if you have a lot of entries is too cumbersome. Also, no spell check or word complete. Come on guys....

    Contacts don't work on windows mobile. :(

    Works great. Would be helpful if you could crop photo in app.
  • by Darren 9/21/2013
    Used it a few months ago and again just now. Works great except for one minor detail: can't resize an image. It also will squish an image to fit the postcard distorting the image. This should never happen... It should give crop and resize controls instead. Vital function sacrificed for simplicity sake. The other postcard app in the store does this one thing much better, but the rest of that app is terrible.

    Saw it tonight on shark tank. Pretty cool. Glad to see there was a windows phone app.
