Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 22, 2013
CallSnap, a new Android application that provides call recipients the chance to prove that “a picture’s worth a thousand words” by allowing call recipients to respond to an incoming call with a photo, announces that the app has reached more than 60,000 downloads. The app currently has a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 and is available to download for free in the Google Play store.
The app has particularly gained popularity internationally; including India where, according to 3rd party analytics gathered by TIP, it has received more downloads in the month of June than SnapChat, the popular app that allows photos and videos to “self-destruct” after a certain amount of time.
“We‘re getting more than 1,000 downloads a day so we're continuing to gain momentum in the Android app world,” says Michael Unetich, president of TIP Solutions and one of the creators of CallSnap. “We’re planning our first in-app purchase to build the download momentum even more. This app is designed for those looking for a more interactive way to answer a phone call.”
By showing people what they’re doing, CallSnap provides mobile call recipients a fun, new, and innovative way to communicate by sharing an instant photo with a friend. Here’s how it works:
1 In response to an incoming call, the recipient is provided an option to slide an icon to CallSnap.
2 CallSnap declines the incoming call and the call recipient is given the opportunity to take a picture which is sent to the caller with one of multiple sayings overlaid as a frame such as, “I’m busy, here’s what I’m doing.”
3 When the recipient uses CallSnap, the caller instantly receives a text message announcing ‘Busy right now…CallSnap photo on the way!’ Importantly, the caller immediately learns that the recipient has seen their call but can’t talk at the moment.
4 Shortly after placing the call, the caller receives the photo visually explaining why the call recipient can’t answer.
