Snapchat is an application for android and other smart phone operating systems. It is used as
a communicative medium by to youth only to have fun their near ones. Snap chat has become
one of the most popular medium to share a picture with. The application was developed by
Evan Spielgel, Bobby Murphey and Reggie Brown. This app is meant to share not only photos
but videos, text and drawings as well. Users can send those things only to a controlled list of
recipients. The sent photos, videos and other drawings are known as snaps.
Features that make the application so special:
There is an option for the users to set on a particular time for the viewers to see the sent photos
and as the time will be over, the photo will automatically be deleted from snap chat’s server.
During the period of viewing the photos, the recipient must retain a contact with the device. The
device’s touch screen must be kept in touch while the recipient is watching the photo. So there is
a problem for the recipient to take a screen shot of the photo. And if by any chance the recipient
manages to take a screen shot by using the device, the sender will be notified soon. Or if any
how the recipient takes a photo of the photo by using a camera, he will have to move his fingers
from the screen of the device, hence there is a possibility that the recipient will not succeed to
take a photo finally. The photos that are sent to the various recipients are ephemeral by their
nature. Usually all of the photos stay on the screen of the recipient. The mentioned features
make the application so special to the users. Funny images are sent via the application. The
application has a clip art free stock.
