    screen568x568Last year, photo sharing service Kicksend began letting US-based users order photo prints direct from its mobile apps — today it has extended that feature to users in India on iOS, Android, Windows 8 or the Web.

    The feature — which was extended to Canada and Mexico in October — allows India-based users to have prints of their photos delivered to any address in the country in under four days — though Kicksend co-founder and CEO Pradeep Elankumaran tells us it usually takes just two.

    US-based Elankumaran, who was raised in Chennai, explains in a blog post that India was picked because “culturally, there’s an extraordinary amount of importance on documenting and preserving the lives of the ones we love through photos.”

    Kicksend’s photo ordering will make its way to more countries soon, he adds.
