A Letter Writing App Brings the Old to the New

Unlike many other social messaging apps, this app focuses on writing and sending letters with an aim to achieve more meaningful communication than status updates. According to its founder, Drew Bartkiewicz, the app all started when he noticed his kids and others were not writing letters any more and he found it was time to bring the old to the new.

Marrying those old memories of writing a letter with modern digital technology, lettrs lets you select a beautiful piece of paper or a theme you like for your letter, add a geo tag to the date, choose a stamp, write and sign off the letter then send it for free. You can write an open letter to share with everyone engaged with the app, or write a private letter to one of your contacts or lettrs penpals.

With the app, you can give a profile with your photo, location and a bit of bio to share with others, and explore beautiful letters that other lettrists share with you from around the world, with live translation of over 80 languages powered by Google.

Besides digital letters, if you like, you can even write a postal letter to be physically delivered to anyone with an address and choose your way of packaging the letter. Understandably this comes with a cost that you need to pay for. For the greater good, lettrs allocates 2% of the company’s equity to the newly formed lettrs foundation to help promote social good and literacy across the world.

First launched on a web platform, lettrs has extended to iOS and Android mobile users and gained some degree of popularity.

Hey lettrists, happy writing.
