[prMac.com] Parkland, Florida - Two women who met online publish PostMarked, a stylized photo messaging app that lets app users create and send cards via text message, email, Facebook, Twitter, and more. Anahelena Natera and Maggie Sheldon, the app creators and partners at Zen Labs LLC, met through a kid's app community where they helped cross promote each other's apps. Now two years and forty-one TestFlight builds later, PostMarked is available for purchase in the App Store.
The creators prioritized user experience and a handcrafted design aesthetic. To get the handmade backgrounds and stickers that the app needed, Maggie and Anahelena turned to a well known online marketplace of crafters, to find artist Jenny Tiffany the maker of the eighty plus backgrounds and stickers that are available in the app.
On the app's release, Maggie Sheldon commented "People have been sending me selfies and pictures of their dogs decorated with mustaches and balloons. I'd say our goal of allowing people to brighten their friend's day is already a success."
"It is both refreshing and rewarding to have built a piece of technology that people can use to spark creativity and at the same time show someone that they care by making something unique." commented Anahelena Natera.
The app is already garnering great praise from the online community:
"The interface is smooth, intuitive and quite addictive. The post box you arrive at after creating your visual message is so fun that you want to create more messages right away!" said Ashley Collins Sheets from Blue Tomato Creative
Zen Labs LLC partners Maggie Sheldon and Anahelena Natera are already working on the next release, which they say will include even more stickers to decorate the PostMarked cards.
