Creating digital postcards with Nokia Place Tag
Digital photo postcards, the mobile revolution has been trying to use them to replace the traditional, and far slower postal equivalent for some time now, and our final Nokia app from MWC this year is a beta preview of their Place Tag service.
We can’t guarantee that what we saw is the final feature set, but this looks like another Nokia lens intended to extend your camera functionality rather than being a fully featured app, read on to find out how it all works.
Operation is simple, you take a picture, which is in turn geo tagged with your current GPS location, and then share it with your friends. There are some overlay options to make the experience more like your traditional postcard, including printing the current address as identified by the Nokia HERE platform, but that’s essentially all the functionality we could find.
Simple yes, but also streamlined as a postcard experience; taking your own picture of your location, writing a short message, and sharing it with your friends. Check out a quick video demonstration below if your interest is piqued.
