Snap! by CodeCrop
Snap is a camera app designed to turn the iPhone camera into a productivity tool: Snap a photo, write as many notes as you want, move them with your finger and the picture is saved with the notes overlaid on it. Sharing on Facebook, Twitter or email is just a touch away.
Other apps can also do this but only Snap has a beautiful, fast and intuitive interface that makes all this easy and fun.
We just released an update that allows users to change the notes colors, fonts and size. Also, we added AirPrint functionality so that users can print right from the app.

Snap is so fast and easy to use that it can be a great replacement for the iPhone’s built-in camera app and be used in a number of situations:
* You’re shopping for a new couch and taking a lot of pictures of your choices but later on you don’t remember all the prices? Just write the prices on your picture. You can also write the dimensions, name of the store, name of the salesperson, anything!
* Just moved to a new house and need to remember the size of your rooms so you can shop around? Just take a picture and write down all you want.
* Want to remember how this great wine you’re drinking tastes like and how much it costs? Snap a picture of the bottle and write it all down!
* Want to document your kid’s homework? Take a picture and write the date, grade, description and keep them forever!
* Just met a few people and are afraid to forget their names? Take a group picture and label everyone.
* Traveling? Write the names of all the places you’ve been so you don’t forget when showing them to your friends.
* Want to have some fun? Take pictures from your friends and family and add captions, subtitles and labels. Kids love to play with Snap’s intuitive interface.
All this in a very easy to use app with a beautiful and intuitive interface very similar to the iPhone’s built-in camera app.
