What is this stuff? White powdery looking stuff on glass

They are not pods or the like. The only thing I can think of is some type of algae. It some off very easily and almost looks like a powder or like white dust in the tank. When the snails go over it they just devour it. Looks tacky though having spots of this stuff. Here is a pic, sorry its not to good. I need to upgrade to a better camera.

Looks like debris that has just settled on your glass. Mine gets that way if I don't wipe it down for a while.
