Felt app lets you send handwritten physical notes

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The art of the handwritten note is more a rarity than common practice these days.

There's always the special occasion like a thank you letter to grandma.

In a digital world dominated by typing, texting, and email, one company is looking to keep the concept of penmanship relevant.

It's called Felt. Tomer Alpert is the CEO and founder. He believes that the handwritten note is not dead and his company's mission is to make sure it doesn't die.

"For me, it's the authenticity behind it. Nobody's handwriting is the same as anyone else -- people make the loops differently," Alpert says.  "And you get to connect with the individual behind the message in a way you simply can't with a computer generated type place."

The app turns the user's digital writing into physical letters. You can select from a variety of thank you or even sympathy cards, write a note using a finger or a stylus, and then the app mails the letter for $3.99.

It's an age-old tradition with a brand-new script.

    We met YEVVO's 26-year-old co-founder and CEO, Ben Rubin, on a rainy day in Madison Square Park. Among the four of us (Ben, me, my photographer, and the representative from Ben's PR firm), we had four smartphones and the free app Rubin created."What if you were going live during this interview and then somebody [online] started asking questions and then [that somebody] actually helped to create the content?" Rubin asked.

    Heartbleed: Android devices may be vulnerable

    If you've heard about the Heartbleed bug, maybe you've already changed all your passwords and online security information. But Android users may still be at risk. Lance Ulanoff, senior editor of the online tech site Mashable, explains: "For the most part, Heartbleed has really been about the services that you access, and not local devices so the encryption on the device may have the same vulnerability."
