This Week’s Must-Have iOS Apps: Printer Pro, Simply Postcards & More!



One of our favorite applications this week is a great new photography app called Simply Postcards that lets you turn any photo into a real postcard that you can have printed with a personal message and mailed to friends and family.

Printer Pro is Readdle’s latest application for iOS, and one of the most impressive applications in our favorites this week. It allows you to wirelessly print a whole range of documents direct from your iPad, including email attachments, web pages, and iWork documents.

Also featured is a great language translator for the iPad, and the most definitive guide to Central Park for your iPhone.

With Simply Postcards on your iOS device, you can grab a photo from your camera roll, add a personal message to the back, and have it mailed out to friends and family from as little as $1. Every postcard is personalised by you and printed to a very high standard on heavy stock paper. It’s then sent out the following day so your recipient receives it in good time. The easiest and most personal way to send postcards while you’re on vacation!
