Did you know that 40% of grandparents live over one hour away from their grandchildren, or that 50% of the over 75s live alone. What about the fact that last Christmas Day, half a million over 75s spent the day alone without contact with another human? Though these statistics paint a dark, depressing picture, this is the very reason why the Hugmail app has been developed. Rather than feeling bad about the lack of contact we have with our relatives, Hugmail wanted to do something to help, something that can help people show just how much they care in a quick and easy way. – so says the Hugmail website.
Created as a great way to keep in touch and share photos with older relatives who feel less comfortable online, Hugmail is a message service that starts on the screen and ends on the mantelpiece.
The Hugmail app turns photos stored on your mobile gallery or Facebook into real, printed postcards and sends them to loved ones anywhere in the world. The app is free to download, and the printing and postage will cost you a nominal fee of £1.49, no matter where in the world you want to send your postcard.
