Share a bit of everything in your life with stories and pictures on Snapchat.

This is a fun app that you can use to share a variety of pictures that will only be viewed for a short time before they disappear. There is no record of the pictures being shared on any device. You can also share videos as long as they are only a few seconds long.

There are numerous filters for pictures on Snapchat, such as adding details for the holidays or adding a crown of flowers. You can also add details that make pictures look like cute animal faces. Images can be saved and shared to social media if you do it while the picture is available. If you don't want to share pictures, you can tell a story in a few short lines. There are also images that you can add to the stories that you create so that you can tell about your life or special events without using words. View your friends stories as well. You can also send messages just like you would with a social media app.

Pros

  • Fun and easy to use
  • Add several details to pictures
  • No trace of pictures that are shared

Cons

  • Some cameras offer poor quality
  • Sound isn't that great either

* Snap and Chat with up to 16 friends! Chats you send to a group are deleted by default after 24 hours.

* When editing a Snap in Memories, tap the paintbrush to give your Snap a new look.

* Press and hold on the camera screen to identify a song with Shazam. Songs you’ve Shazamed appear in Settings.
