Take online photos offline.

In a world ruled by texts, IMs, and social media posts, communicating by snail mail feels downright daring. Fusing classic and modern, analog and digital, the new Pixinote app lets you reach out to loved ones with notecards sent directly from your iOS device to their physical postbox. Just pick a name from your contacts, write a short message, add a selfie or favorite travel image (even emoji, if you must), and hit send. It’s a great way to share vacation memories – no cloud backup required. $3 for one note; $12 for five.
