First Look: myPostcards

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Check out Nnooo's newest app in action!

Nic Watt of Nnooo has just released the first video of his upcoming DSiWare application myPostcards in action. You may remember our recent podcast interview with Nic where he hinted at such a creation, in fact.

You can check out the video below for a taste of what you can expect from the program and we'll keep you updated on any new information on the app as it becomes available. We'll also have a full review when it's released on the DSiWare service later this year.

I'd just like to say please, please, please bring this to WiiWare, if only to stop more Happy Holidays apps from being released!

It does look pretty nice and if I had a DSi, I'd probably get it.

myPostcards is only coming in one version :)

myNotebook was released in different colours to give choice and to allow users to have more pages should they require.

I think I'll get this. It proves a little more useful than myNotebook. But I'll only get it if it's for a reasonable price of DSi Points. Maybe 200 at most.

Don't really quite get the advantage to using this over my mobile phone, since I actually carry that with me everywhere anyway and I don't even own a DSi, but I'm sure some people will want it.

It does look nice and simple to use and well put together and if it only costs a couple of bucks then I guess there's no harm in it.

I suppose it's just adding a little bit more functionality to the DSi for only a few squid.

I'm assuming the application has the options directly built in that allow you to easily email the postcards and post them on facebook, yes/no, but how do you actually go about printing them?

If you just save it as an image on your SD card and then have to transfer it to PC anyway to do anything with it then it's a rip off. If it does it directly from the application, who knows about the printing however, then it's ok.

Am looking forward to this

@Nic: Is that you in your avatar? If so, nice job scoring a Virtual Boy, we're but a small group of people Down Under to actually own one :)

The only thing I didn't like about myNotebook was that it was SO annoying to erase the text... I don't know if it was to make it be more realistic, but it took forever to erase something as big as a sentence! Free update maybe?

Ehh, maybe. I did buy two myNotebooks and Pop+ so I will keep an eye on this. Since I've been getting into more online social experiences lately. I just might download.

to bad there is really no possibility to send postcards to other dsi systems.. so why there is a dsi friendcode in the settings displayed? what can we do with that in future, nintendo?

"myNotebook was released in different colours to give choice and to allow users to have more pages should they require."

And those few color options couldn't have just been made available on a single copy of the software why exactly?

No the mynotebooks couldn't have been made into one copy because of the save file size restrictions. You'd have the colours but probably only 32 pages still and not 96. Blame nintnedo.

Also nnooo will not be able to have the postcards sent because nintendo isn't giving them access to wifi period. Again, blame nintendo.

I'm sure if nnooo could, they'd have different wifi sending options as well as release their mychat voice program that they wanted to do, but nintendo does want wifi to be that open access for whatever stupid dumb reason.

Read the second half of his comment: "to allow users to have more pages should they require." By releasing different colors, buyers are given the opportunity to purchase more than one Notebook. If there was only a single release, you couldn't buy it more than once.

Guh, hard typing on a Ipod touch.
I meant to say that Nintendo DOESN'T want wifi to be that easily accessible and communicative.

Really, I'm sure we can all agree. Nintendo's stance on online and communication online is really really really dumb, or conservative however nice you want to word it. :P

And those people couldn't have still just bought more copies of a single game that contained the multiple color options if they wanted extra pages no?

Isn't that better than deliberately limiting the color choice for the vast majority of people who are only going to buy a single copy of the game no?

Is logic a lost art...

Hardy83 said:

Oh! lol Kirk I totally forgot, the colors are in each app, red blue and green, they are unlockable. You just have to own all 3 apps. :P
There's also a Pop+ paper type, but you need to own Pop+ to get that unlock.

It's really not a big deal that the page colours aren't easily unlockable in all versions, you're just nit picking.
Course I'm also someone who doesn't care about what colour the system is or new colours that come out.

I'll definally buy this, it looks like a souped up version of myNotebook, but I can send my creations to my grandma via email, she'd like that. :D

Sooooo.... on the camera function of the Dsi, you can already edit and draw on pictures you've taken, send them to facebook, etc. What Nnooo's done, is add a white space underneath the picture to write on and is going to charge morons for it. Genius!

I like this. It looks a lot more customizable than myNotebook, which was sorta limited in features. Add the fact you can actually print them out and mail them and you have a decent app!

Is there a feature which allows you to make a postcard, put it on your SD card, put the card in your Wii, and send it to your Wii Message Board friends? If so, I am SOOO buying this.

Looks like a good app, this should fly out of the store at 200 points. Though i think its going to be priced higher than that. The e-mail and facebook functionality is a must.

Nnooo

Nnooo said:

@KanrakusPizza Yes you can transfer it to SD card so like any photo taken with your DSi you will be able to put it onto your Wii :)

@fweddeh We hope to release it for 200 points in March/April.
