Turn any photo on your iPhone into a virtual postcard (complete with text greeting) that you can post on Facebook or Twitter or share via e-mail. The SodaSnap+ premium version lets you resize and make basic edits on your cards, plus you can pick from a variety of fonts for the text box.

Cost: Free-$2.99.
