Posted by simarprit in : Twitter, Uncategorized , trackback

I respect TwitPic for what it means and what it has achieved. This comparison between TwitSnaps and TwitPic is done with the intent of sharing the features developed in TwitSnaps first. Do give me a feedback and enjoy TwitSnaps. I hereby declare that I am involved with TwitSnaps from day one and have been instrumental in its development. I also declare that I have used TwitPic on several occasions and admire it for its growth.

TwitSnaps successfully implemented “Rotate it & Save it” functionality. It is amongst significant differentiators between TwitPic and TwitSnaps

TwitSnaps allows you to tweet long, longer than 140 – of course some of it a person would be able to read only in TwitSnaps and not on Twitter. Twit Snaps has also implemented Post your real URL at TwitSnaps – check here http://twitsnaps.com/focussingapore

I like to the zoom feature as it allows to dig deeper into the pictures something which we don’t usually see with pictures on the internet.

Hi Simar,

Was reviewing twitsnaps and first thing which catches my eye is zoom feature. It’s really great , no wonder why comment above me supports that.
Also first pic i loaded to twitsnap was a high resolution image and its looking great!!

Also Snap it feature has great utility.

Great work PM!! Best of luck for this site.

This is amazing. Did not realize that there are so many great features packed into the application. I think, instead of comparing with Twitpics, you have created a product that combines many good features in mainstream image apps like Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket and the like. And then some more!! Good luck. I think you have a winner on your hands!!

Thanks Mani/ Param/ Sanjay,
We are working on adding and improving the site everyday. The numbers have started moving and we are confident that soon it would be rated as the finest and should become fairly popular
