Experience a totally new way to share today. Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend (or maybe a few). They'll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen - unless they take a screenshot! If you want to share a Snap with all of your friends, add it to your Snapchat Story, where each Snap lives for 24 hours until it disappears, making room for the new.
The images might be a little grainy, and you may not look your best, but that's the point. It's about the moment, a connection between friends in the present, and not just a pretty picture.
The allure of fleeting messages reminds us about the beauty of friendship - we don't need a reason to stay in touch.
Please note: even though Snaps are are deleted from our servers after they are viewed, we cannot prevent the recipient(s) from capturing and saving the message by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device.
What's New in Version 6.1.2
Bug fixes and Improvements
The bugs of previous versions have started to get tackled by the Snapchat team and the app grows every update. The "My Story", the newest major feature the app boasts, is an interesting idea that grows Snapchat from a simple timed picture display to a larger social media function.
The new filters, smart filters, and extra text are all enhancer of what the actual "Snaps" look like.
The forward facing flash option is a testament to the developers' ingenuity and creative use of the display to mimic a flash enables photo with the camera on the front of the phone.
The "replay" option is somewhat troublesome because is begs the question, "Do my snaps get deleted"? The replay function lets users essentially undelete what seems to be a permanently deletable file. Think twice about what kind of pictures you want to be sending, because the app may not be as secure as users think.
In conclusion, the app is fun, witty, and a new form of social media. This app is simple, straightforward, and is an enjoyment to use with friends.
- add a flipping option for a picture taken with the forward facing camera so users can read text that would normally be flipped.
I can't write text on my pictures anymore. it's dead when I try swiping for the little bar to add text.
Aside from this, u guys have grown soooo much in the last year. It's ridiculous!! we all love you, but you guys really need to step up your game. you might have started off low budget, but I doubt that's the case nowadays. Why can't I choose my own notification sound, or better yet, why doesn't it have a sound if it's own? i don't want the concept to change, and I don't want the formatting to change either. The simplicity of snapchat is what captivated me. but really guys? crashes and bugs?? that's a thing for the amateurs. pick up your game. give it some twist before it starts dying down and another source source of communication starts taking your place. make it easier for people to use and not get frustrated when using it. look at the reviews and tally up what people want. don't just make a small hidden improvement, blow it out of the ballpark!!
so to put my 2 cents about what I want improved/added:
-ability to have a preset group that I can just pick when it comes to sending mass snapchats.
-distinct notification alert, not old, generic iPhone dings.
-ability to take more that one picture and choose from a couple before editing and sending to friends
-no more crashes while I'm working on a picture/video!!!
Snapchat being weird
So I love to use this app alot. It's really fun but it's starting to make me angry. First of all when I first launch the app it just shuts down and takes me back home. That's not really a problem though since it works the second or third try but sometimes it doesn't even take me back home so that's good. The thing that's really making me want to uninstall this app is that all my friends say I'm screenshotting there pics when I'm clearly not. It doesn't happen all the time but it's most of the time and my friends let me know and there's nothing I could do to prove to them that I don't screen shot there pics. Sometimes I even go to the person that says I screen shot there pics and let them go through all my pics to prove that I'm not some kind of creep. It seems like this only happens to me. I use a iPod 4 16gb so is that the reason it does this. I don't know but I'm thinking about uninstalling this app. Needs to be fixed ASAP. I really did love this app too
