Sending actual post with an actual postage stamp? How very, very quaint. What with holiday Instas, Snapchats and tweets, who has time to send a postcard these days? Well before you jet off to sunny climes, download Touchnote and get ready to embrace the joy of sending postcards. And with none of the hassle of deliberating over which postcard for who or working out how to say “one international stamp, please” in the local language…

Simply select your envy-inducing holiday pic – be it a glorious sunset, hotdogs-or-legs snap next to the pool or humblebrag image of a must-visit cultural institution or Michelin-starred eatery. Add an address and then take time to compose a message your recipient won’t be embarrassed by the postman reading. Postcards take a couple of days to arrive at their destination – depending on where you’re sending – so it may be that it arrives back before you do! They cost about £1.80 each – and we all know how lovely it is to receive a postcard, and realise that our loved ones are thinking of us… Wish you were here?
