Mac OS X software PhotoSnap

TOKYO (MacHouse) – This March has turned out to be a quite productive month for me. So far, I have released six applications. Of course, most of them are small ones except attributedCode. Whether you believe it or not, I’m ready to introduce one more application to you today. 7 applications in a month… That’s a new record. This new software release is called PhotoSnap.
