Send Hand-Written Cards From Your iOS Device With ThankYouPen

Posted by Jennifer Allen on April 29th, 2011

They say the art of letter writing and handwriting on the whole is dying. I'm not entirely sure who 'they' are but they've got a point. With the advent of technology, it's just so much easier to type and email everything. It's nice to have the personal touch though but what do you do if you're in a rush?

Imagine you're rushing to catch your train or your flight, you've just realised that you forgot to send a dearly loved relative a greetings card. There's no time to get to the post office and buy stamps, so what do you do? Yup, there's an app for that.

It's called ThankYouPen. It's a free download that lets you send letters and greeting cards without ever having to go to the post office, buy stamps, the card itself or write the message yourself. All you have to do is choose the recipient from your address book, pick the stationery from a wide range of choices and type the message. The people on the other side of the app do everything else for you.

Cards typically cost $3.95 to £5.95 which seems quite reasonable considering the saved effort. The app is all too happy to let you know about upcoming dates too and you can consult it for future holidays as well.

Take a look at the video below for more details of how it'll all look. This one could be a real hassle saver.
