Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Enjoy fast and fun mobile conversation! Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend. They’ll view it, laugh, and then the Snap disappears from the screen – unless they take a screenshot!
You can also add a Snap to your Story with one tap to share your day with all of your friends.
The best conversations happen when both friends are present, so we’ll let you know if your friend is Here in your Chat so that you can give each other your full attention. And if you're both Here, simply press and hold to share live video - and Chat face-to-face! Happy Snapping!
Please note: even though Snaps, Chats, and Stories are deleted from our servers after they expire, we cannot prevent recipient(s) from capturing and saving the message by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device.
What's New in Version 9.11.0
* Tap To View — Now it only takes one tap to view a Snap or Story.
* Improved Snapcodes!

Add by Snapcode — Screenshot a friend's Snapcode, then go to Add Friends to add them!
Share your Snapcode — Export your Snapcode directly from the app.
Don't really like the new update
I don't personally like the update because I dislike the "Tap to View". I liked the "Press and Hold to View" better in the previous versions of the app. Having to hold down the "Snap" while you are viewing it, I think, is part of the experience of SnapChat. I wish there was a way to go back to the older version because this "Tap to View" is not really the best idea. It's really annoying actually. I hope you guys change your mind and your new update goes back to "Press and Hold to View" because that is really the way to go. Who really cares about only having to tap a "Snap" once in order to view it. It doesn't really make it simpler because you have people trying to open a "Snap" by holding it down, but it just won't open. Maybe you can consider compromising by having a way to open a "Snap" by holding it down or just tapping it. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider going back to having to "Press and Hold to View" a "Snap"!! I believe that it is more convenient to hold down a "Snap" to view it because you can take you finger off the screen and still have the option to go back and check the "Snap" before the timer expires instead of having to swipe down. Also you are unable to check how long ago a "Snap" was sent to you before you open it because once you tap it, it opens automatically. Again, HAVING TO HOLD DOWN A "SNAP" IN ORDER TO VIEW IT IS PART OF THE SNAPCHAT EXPERIENCE!!!!! Please change back to having to hold down the "Snap" to view it!
Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews.
After this new update, Snapchat is straight heat now. Issues I've had before are gone. No more holding down a finger to watch stories, which gets in the way. The snap you're viewing even PAUSES if a battery % notification pops up (I don't know about other notifications). The reason there are bad reviews is because dogs don't like to spend a couple minutes learning new tricks, but tech-savvy humans do. This is a great app, and a lot of people think so, but unfortunately most people only review if they have something bad to say. For every bad review there are 6 good ones not being posted. That's a scientific fact. And to the guy who said you can no longer see how long ago someone's story was posted, brace yourself because YOU CAN! All you do is, instead of tapping, hold down the story for a second and the time will pop up under their name. It's not difficult at all fam, just adapt a little.
"Don't fix what ain't broke."
This review should be unnecessary due to the countless others that share the same nature, and with other apps that seems to be the case, and the problem(s) that are continuously complained about get fixed. What happens with snapchat is very different. Ever since I first downloaded this app the reviews have been from people like myself, who love the app because of the ease of fun communication with friends but dislike the constant unnecessary updates. Honestly, if it wasn't for all of my friends nagging me about getting this app, I wouldn't have gotten it because of the reality that the reviews possess. I believe that the developers are putting unnecessary work into the use of the app. I won't go into specifics within the app that have been changed and brought sadness onto many snappers because by the time this review gets looked at, there will probably be another (here we go using this word again) unnecessary update. It is too late now to change back to the good old snapchat, so, developers, please don't make the same mistakes you have in the past and don't fix what isn't broken.
