    LittleSnapper Arrives for IPhone
    Last December, Realmac Software launched LittleSnapper, an iPhoto-like utility for snapping, organizing, and sharing screenshots. If you don't always have a Mac available with which to get snapping, though, LittleSnapper is now available in a convenient travel size for iPhone and iPod touch. LittleSnapper for iPhone--maybe they should have called it "LittlerSnapper"--brings the most essential features of its big brother to the iPhone OS. You can use the iPhone's camera to snap a photo, pull a photo from your device's library, or capture a Web page via the program's built-in browser. You can then add a title, description, rating, tags, and specify a photo type (screenshot, websnap, illustration, etc.) to your images, then share them to QuickSnapper, Realmac Software's image hosting and sharing service, or Twitter.
