These days, it’s much easier to correspond with people through instant messages, texts and e-mail, but we know there are those of you who absolutely would prefer to receive an actual physical letter from your friends and family on a regular basis. Years of typing on a keyboard have probably made your hands quite feeble, which means writing with a pen might result in a pulled nerve, which is why lettrs is looking to mail out letters for you through their iPhone app.
Lettrs is a $2.99 application for the iPhone that allows users to deliver personal mobile letters to anyone in the world through the lettrs platform for free, turning the iPhone into a mobile writing desk. The company is holding a promotion through Mother’s Day (May 12) to allow users to experience its paper-post letter service for up to five free letters to be delivered anywhere in the world by entering “mother” as a coupon code. After the promotional offer is over, Lettrs charges $2 to $6 for paper-post letters depending where they’re being delivered.
