A growing craze amongst iPhone users is that of Snapchat. The App which allows users to take photo images and share them with friends or groups for a pre-determined amount of time. Users can send real-time images via the app for picture chatting and better yet, from the moment your friends open them, you have the power to determine how long they can look at the image for.
The addictive and fun SnapChat app boosts a list of features which keeps you going back for more including:
– Timed Images – You decide if your friends get to see your image for 2 seconds or 30 seconds before ultimately being deleted forever.
– Screenshot Alert – Lets you know if someone has taken a screenshot of your image before the timer has run out.
– Drawing – You can add your own creative flare to images by drawing on your photos.
Plus SnapChat has a host of other features that include an ultra fast camera, quick sign-up process and password recovery options.
Snapchat has gained itself somewhat of a bad rap as a ‘Sexting’ app in recent times, however the App Co-Founder Even Spiegel continues to argue this is not its intention whatsoever. Although this has not stopped Snapchat, Inc. from displaying cleverly positioned almost nude images on its iTunes download page as well as a 12+ age restriction and description including the some of the following: Infrequent/Mild Sexual Content or Nudity – Infrequent/Mild Alcohol, Tobacco, or Drug Use or References – Infrequent/Mild Mature/Suggestive Themes – Infrequent/Mild Profanity or Crude Humor.
As with all things, it is up to the user to decide how to use this one. And it really is quite fun. You can download the Snapchat App for free from iTunes now by following the link below. This app is compatible with the following devices as long as they are running iOS 4.0 or later:
