My name is Jess Stratton, and welcome to Monday Productivity Pointers. In the last video, I showed you how fun it was to go online, to postagramapp.com, and send your own postcards, real, printable postcards, from pictures that you already have on your computer, or on your phone. Now, I'm going to show you how to log into your I phone using the Postagram app and do the same thing. So, I have my sub folder on my iPhone. I have my travel sub folder, so that I know where to find Postagram when I am traveling and as you can see it's called Postagram and you can find it in the app store.
It's completely free and it's just 99 cents to send a post card to somebody through the mail. So, i'll tap postagram to get into the app, and you'll notice that you can connect up to four services. The first one is your photo library, which is just all the pictures that you have on your phone. I've also connected it up to my Instagram app, and I've connected up to Facebook. So I could simply tap See All if I wanted to see all my Facebook photos. The last service is Dropbox, and if you haven't connected to a service, you'll see the word login next to that service on the right-hand side.
I'm going to create a postagram from my Instagram photos, which I've connected to. I can simply swipe through my list of photos or I can tap See All on the right-hand side to get into all the photos. I can easily scroll to find the particular one I'm looking for, tap the photo, and you'll see a preview of what you're postcard's going to look like. Now remember, this is something that is actually going to get printed out and sent in the mail to somebody, which is wonderful. On the right-hand side, you can see your photo, and on the left-hand side, you can see the caption that you gave it when you created that photo and put it on Instagram.
You can also edit it by tapping Edit Your Message. It zooms in, and I can simply use the keyboard, and start typing to add more to it. When you're done, simply tap the Done button. From here, tap Continue. Now you can tap the recipients of who you want to send the postcard to. Now, in the last video, I had the same recipient, which was myself in there, and it knows that because I've already logged into the Postagram app. So the two work in sync. So you could simply tap the name to send the postcard to the person in your list.
Or you could tap Add a Recipient to easily add somebody new. When you're done, you could tap Continue, but in this case I'll tap the Back button. I'm going to tap my name, 'because in this case I'll send my recipient to myself, and you can also add additional recipients. You can simply tap as many people as you want and it'll place check-boxes next to them and send them separate postcards. Now remember, it's $0.99 for each postcard. I'll tap the yellow continue button, and here's where it tells me when the Postagram is going to arrive at the person's house.
It tells me who the recipient is. I can see the postcard just to make sure it's exactly how I want it. I can tap the Next button and here's where I put in my card information. Now, I'm not going to do that part here because all I have to do after that is tap the yellow Done button. It's that easy to pluck photos that you take and send them to somebody as a postcard. I'm going to tap Cancel and just keep going back, because I want to get back to that main screen. Here's what you see again. So it's that easy to take your phone while you're out cruising a city or a tourist attraction or somewhere with a beautiful vista, take your phone, snap a photo, and choose it from your photo library and create a postcard to send to somebody from what you've seen.
So I encourage you to download the Postagram app and get started sending old fashion post cards right away.
