Apple introduces Cards for iOS
The Apple “Let’s talk iPhone” event is live now and among the new iOS goodies is the exciting Cards feature. What’s interesting about Cards is that it actually links your virtual life with reality in the form of greeting cards. Now, it not only lets you choose a card and customize it, but Apple will send it for you. That’s not all - you also get a notification on your phone whenever the snail mail card arrives at the destination you sent it to.

It’s really simple: "We'll print it out, put the address on it, and mail it. If you mail in the US, we can track it with the US Postal Service barcode, and we'll send you a push notification when it arrives."

Everything starts on your phone - you can choose between 21 preset designs. The rest remains Apple’s work: "You create the card on your iPhone, and we'll do the rest." The application will be available in just a week - on October 12th as a free update on the App Store.

bahahahaha.. way to innovate apple! snail mail!! they invented it!! who was the guy that thought of this? grandpa simpson? who sends anything by snail mail anymore?

oh wait.. thats right, according to taco's chart, the prime iphone user is 35+ non tech savy females. Maybe they still buy stamps and send checks in the mail.

they never claimed invention but i have to say people don't really send cards no more. Since Facebook took over even my grandma just write on my wall. I don't see myself using this ever

on a side note love the camera and siri
