The app uses cloud and mobile technology to provide users with the ability to compose a letter, drag and drop high-resolution photos and select recipients, within minutes.

A process that used to take hours is now cut down significantly by utilizing these technologies, according to CEO and founder, Tim Campbell.

“Utilizing our virtual fulfillment network, we print the letters and photos, then assemble and mail them for you,” Campbell said. “We do all of the backend processes, all you have to do is focus on the creative part.”

Campbell was previously a software developer and entrepreneur, working for companies like HighJump Software and Symyx Technologies. He hopes to expand the Spletter market nationally in hopes of making communications between immigrants living in the U.S. and their families in other countries easier.

“Many people in the world today still don’t have Internet access, but they do have an Android phone,” Campbell said. “The idea is to provide a platform for them to communicate easier on a national level.”

Campbell explained that when a person receives a “spletter” they also have the opportunity to write a response and send it to the “virtual fulfillment network,” who then sends the original sender a push notification of the sletter response.

A two-page domestic spletter currently costs $1.99 ($2.99 for international), and adding 4 x 6 prints cost 49 cents each, USD. Spletter is now available for Android and users can download it in the Google Play store.
