Apple Announces New “Cards” iOS App

Apple's Senior VP of iOS Software Scott Forstall took the stage today at Apple's media event to announce Cards, a new iOS app to create a card on your phone, with Apple printing it, embossing it, and mailing to you. Users can choose between 21 different designs, and the app will support iOS 5's new push notification system. The app will be available on the App Store on October 12th; Apple says mailing cost for cards will be $2.99 in the United States.

We'll have a more detailed look at Cards for iPhone once it's available on the App Store.
