Snaplight is a very simple app by Tanner Christensen that lets you take a photo of a book or other printed matter, highlight a quote or passage, and share it. The best part is that the app was done in 24 hours to satisfy one person’s need (the app designer’s) and then it blew right up to the top 200 apps for all categories worldwide. Great read at the link.
