No more messing with complicated iTunes URLs. The new iPhone app AppSnapp allows easy app sharing and installation through the use of the iPhone’s camera. Simply take a picture of the application icon, following the directions on the screen, and AppSnap scans it, checks it against Apple’s App Store, and returns a list of matching apps for your convenience. AppSnap also works with iPad and iPod application icons.
Although the concept of buying an app to assist in installing more apps may seem redundant, the next time you are reading a review or news flash of a new app on the web (like this one), you could grab your iPhone, take a picture, and have the app at your fingertips in seconds. AppSnap is available now on the iPhone App Store for $1.99.
