Felt – send handwritten cards from your iPad via SxSW 2014

Felt was a finalist in the Accelerator Social Technology category at SxSW 2014.  This iPad application lets you create handwritten cards that are mailed for you.

Using their pretty slick iPad application, you choose the type of event card you want to send from Felt, including awesome artwork ones that can be used for anything. I like the fact they offer cards that are not just built around holidays and events, yet have very good artwork.  You can also find some simple ones.

Felt card selection

After choosing the card style, you flip it open in the Felt app and choose a pen type and color to write your note.  Many people should ask, what am I using to write this? Well as luck would have it we have reviewed what we think is one of the best stylus available for fine point writing.  See our product review on the Adonit Jot Pro 2.  Using the stylus write anywhere on the card.  Since it is digital different colors could be done for multiple person signed cards.

Felt cardwriting screen

Here is the other cool part. You then flip the screen again and actually write the to and from addresses. It then prints on the envelope in your handwriting! To me there is no difference in a printed card with my handwriting versus pen ink.  They claim to use some printing that replicates handwriting as form the examples it is great.

Felt merges technology with the feeling you get when someone writes you an actual card or letter and mails it. I am sure the USPS appreciates this too.  The total cost for US based delivery is $3.99.  This includes the card and mailing.  How long does it take?

We do our best to send cards within 24 hours. You’ll get an email when we drop your card in the mail. We proudly use the trusty US Postal Service’s First Class Mail, which arrives at most destinations within 2-5 business days. Remember, good things are worth waiting just a little bit longer for!

That is just as long as me doing it myself. Since usually I let something sit a day or two before actually going to a physical post office.This is a great idea done in a well designed app.  Go ahead and head over to iTunes on your iPad and search for Felt.

Apps to spy on your childrens mobile phones
Thu, Aug 11th 2016 12:42p   Chris Miller
We look at the growing number of apps that spy on the mobile phone activity of your children.  An increasing number of parents feel the need to spy on their children’s cell phones to keep up with who they talk to and what they share. One thing to remember is that all of the data you are tracking is being sent from your child’s phone to the Internet and then stored there. While all of these services use encryption to store the data, the fear it is out there is always on our mind. Wh

How to create a Pokestop for Pokemon Go. Good for businesses?
Thu, Jul 14th 2016 5:35p   Chris Miller
I could go into Pokemon Go security or even how to play, but what about creating Pokestops as a way to increase foot traffic to your business? As brought up by a friend during a Facebook posting, a Pokestop can be beneficial. What is a Pokestop? As defined by Niantic Labs, a Pokestop is a place to collect items such as Pokeballs, eggs and a ton of other items to help you catch, grow and maintain Pokemon.  Sounds simple right? There are so many online resource right now showing you every corne

GoGo Entertainment app review – GoGo quickly away from it
Thu, Jun 23rd 2016 4:16p   Chris Miller
Many airlines are turning their in-flight entertainment over to GoGo Entertainment (who also controls GoGo Internet in the flights). The use and flow of this application as an entertainment server is horrid. Here is my story. On a recent American Airlines flight (formerly US Air leg from St Louis to Charlotte) I noticed all the in seat music was disabled. The magazine and agents directed me to the GoGo Internet to then hook into the GoGo Entertainment to get the music, movies and TV shows. I pre

You Are the Key: Unlocking the Door Through Social Selling book review
Mon, Mar 14th 2016 12:02p   Chris Miller
I read You Are the Key: Unlocking the Door Through Social Selling cover to cover as someone that is very familiar with the content and their goals. If I stepped back and looked at it from a new comer to the ideas of using social networks as a social selling tool, they cover the basics very thoroughly and then get a bit lighter in the actual selling. The book only has one flaw that got in my way an that was the breaking up of the networks across the chapters causing them to repeat themselves. I t
