Apple shuts down the postcard Cards app

iDevices such as iPhones, iPod Touch and iPads have been used for to send physical postcards through the use of the Cards app, which Apple recently has shut down and cancelled.

Apple has decided to cancel the Cards app which allowed users to send a physical postcard to an address based on a photo on the iOS device. 

The Cards app itself was launched almost 2 years ago, and based on this decision, this service has likely been less than successful for Apple. The primary reason for this is probably that the cost was quite high for sending a post card. Using the Cards app, the users had to pay $6 to send a postcard, which simply does not make much sense for most people who may just as well send the photo through e-mail, iMessage, other instant messaging apps or simply MMS.

While the official postcard app from Apple has been cancelled, there are certainly alternatives out there for those that are still interested in being able to send physical postcards from their iOS devices. It is after all a function that is useful under certain conditions.
