What is SnapChat?
Snapchat is a photo messaging application which is gaining high popularity nowadays. This
app, also referred to as snapchat picture app allows users to take picture, videos, and add text
and drawing features in them and then send to a controlled list of recipients. These pictures
which are sent through this app are called “snaps”. That is how the app got its name. However,
chatting in this app is not limited to just sending pictures. Rather, this app allows sender to set a
time limit with the sent snap. Thus, the receiver of the picture will be able to view the snap or the
sent item only for a set period of time, after which the snap gets permanently deleted.
Concept behind this popular App:
Concept behind the development of Snapchat app is simple. The app was developed so that
people can chat with pictures and videos. The concept was that a picture or a video with caption
speaks more than mere words and texts. This concept worked well as well, because the app
became extremely popular within a very short time span.
