postcards from lewisham

My favourite app at the moment is Postman. It's like a much simpler version of things like Dopplr and Yellow Arrow. You choose a picture you've taken or take your location from Google Maps, fit it to a template of your choice, write your message and send it. OK, the user interface isn't as nice as it could be, and a couple of other postcard apps have better designed templates. But you can't beat Postman for sharing options. Like GPS Mapcard, I'm definitely liking those apps that give you a sense of the whole place/location thing without expecting you to make the same sort of commitment. You get the location-based storytelling and active remembering without having to do much legwork. It's like a very easy game to play. Which feels important, for some reason.
