Postagram Lets iPhone Users Send Real Post Cards for $1

With the hgh-quality photos that the iPhone takes, it’s no wonder that so many users already enjoy the Instagram app. Unfortunately, with Instagram, all photos stay digital. Thankfully, now there’s an app that lets users send real, physical postcards of Instagram photos for just 99 cents each -- shipping is free.

Instagram works similarly to how Polaroid photos work – leaving users with bordered shots that can easily be posted to Facebook and Twitter. Unfortunately, there’s not been a way to use them for anything other than a website, until now! Now, instead of posting the pictures on a Facebook wall, you can post them on a bedroom wall!

Apple Launches Subscriptions on App Store

A couple of weeks ago, Apple rolled out its daily newspaper, The Daily, for the iPad. Now, Apple has announced a new subscription service available to all publishers of content-based apps on the App Store – magazines, newspapers, videos, music, etc.  It will have the same digital billing subscription service as The Daily.

The service will work the same way customers have purchased apps and in-app purchases.

New App Helps You Find Where the Ladies Are

After three weeks in review, Wheretheladies.at, a web app that aggregates Foursquare check-ins by the female gender, is now available on the iPhone. The concept of a compass pointing users in the direction of lots of ladies is apparently so unprecendented that Apple actually called co-founder Jeff Hodsdon to ask about the app during its review process.

Danny Trinh and Hodsdon developed the app, which ranks nearby locations by the number of females who have checked in, helpfully (or hopefully?) pointing you in the direction of where the most ladies are in your general vicinity.

Hodsdon says the difference between Wheretheladies.at and apps like Assisted Serendipity is temporal, meaning that Wheretheladies.at only counts check-ins within the past 30 minutes, to ensure that the ladies will actually be there when you arrive.

Apple Bans WikiLeaks App from iPhones

Apple has banned the WikiLeaks iPhone app, determining that it could ‘hurt people,’ ‘is illegal’, or both. The company didn’t specially say why 73 million IPhone users are forbidden from using the app, but they did hint at the reason.

Apple’s Trudy Miller told the New York Times that the app “violated our developer guidelines. Apps must comply with all local laws and may not put an individual or group in harm’s way.”

This would be fine – except there’s no evidence that Wikileaks has harmed anyone, according to federal officials. Further, WikiLeaks has not been convicted of violating any laws.

The $1.99 WikiLeaks app was taking down yesterday after being available for just three days. It’s not clear how popular it was, but its developer promised to donate $1 for every download to organizations that “promote the future of online democracy.”

Eggs-ellent New iPhone App!

Cute, colorful graphic from EggsEggsEggs!

Just in time for the Easter weekend comes EggsEggsEggs, the interesting iPhone app that merges an ancient tradition with modern technology.

In many Eastern European countries, children, as well as adults, would engage in the traditional game of egg tapping, or egg jousting, on Easter Sunday. You take one of your colorfully decorated eggs and challenge another player to a duel. Eggs are tapped against each other until the losing egg cracks. The loser gets to eat his broken egg, while the winner moves on to challenge a new opponent.

This age-old tradition has been transformed into a simulated game for the iPhone! Players already report that the game is quite addicting. You can challenge other players, or try the skill mode to test your strength and ability. There are over 70 different eggs to collect! It's all so eggs-citing!  

Check out this funny demonstration video:
