My Web Watcher segment today is all about photo apps — enjoy!


Free for Android

CallSnap is an app that allows you to answer a phone call with a photo. When a call comes in at an inopportune time, you can slide the CallSnap icon and the caller will immediately receive a text message that says, “Busy right now…CallSnap photo on the way.” Then you can send a photo of what you’re doing to the person who called you.

Created by the Chicago-based Tip Solutions, CallSnap is one of those apps that makes me want to ditch my iPhone and go Android.
