Postagram: It's a service that prints and ships your Facebook photos or pictures from your photo library as postcards. It only costs $1 to print and ship picture anywhere to the world. A pretty clever way to deliver that print touch in a digital world. Free


Prox: A genuinely clever app, Prox can control your Android phone without ever touching the touchscreen. The way it works is that the accelerometer determines how you hold the phone (left, right, toward, away) and can associate an action for the grip. You trigger that action by waving your hand over the proximity sensor. So you can load apps, change ringer mode, open notifications, turn off the screen, etc with a simple wave of the hand. It could prove useful in cold weather situations or if you want to pretend you have wizard powers.

The idea is that by playing a game that matches up faces to names, you won't be stumped about who they are in real life. Strangely though, it doesn't support Facebook.
