Snappages … another Austin bootstrap!

Snappages is a new site by Steve Testone’s Test 1 Studios here in Austin.

It looks like an online iPhoto/flickr, Myspace, and Calendarhub in one. The UI looks pretty slick for all the functions. The calendar looks pretty good and I might give it a try. It doesn’t look like there are too many users yet, but I can’t tell for sure because it doesn’t let you see the community. Maybe that is planned in the future.

I’m curious what the angle is. I still think there is a lot of opportunity online for basic toolset combinations, but without any angle or focus, I don’t know where all the users will come from.

Also, I was surprised to see it all looks built in PHP. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it just seems a new generation of this type of web app would be in Ruby on Rails.

The UI also feels like the beginnings of a nice Web desktop.
