Early Apple developer Bill Atkinson developing iOS apps

Bill Atkinson worked at Apple Computer from 1978 until 1990, and created a lot of software that people loved. Most notable were his contributions to MacPaint and HyperCard.

Turns out Atkinson hasn’t abandoned Apple, and he’s still creating applications for a very popular Apple platform—iOS.

PhotoCard is an application that lets you use an iPhone and iPad to create postcards from your photos. They’ll then mail off the postcards for you for a small fee. In additional to using snailmail, the application also lets you send the postcards via email.

There are a lot of excellent reviews on the App Store, and while I haven’t tried the service out myself just yet, I did want to pass along the news that one of the original Macintosh developers is still active in the community, bringing great products to Apple fans. This is why I love the Mac community!

Thanks for the hard work, Bill. Most of us wouldn’t be sitting here if it wasn’t for you.
