What is Snapchat ?

Snapchat is a photo messaging application developed by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy and Reggie Brown in 2011. The particularity of this application is the existence of a limit time for the viewing of the media sent to recipients.

It's the juxtaposition of multiple pictures/videos. Snapchat allow to draw on the pictures or apply color filters. We can add too personal data like the hour or the temperature.

How does it work ?

In a first time, you must download the application.

1- Download and install the app. Snapchat can be downloaded for free from the Google Play and Apple App Stores.

2- Sign up for an account. When you first open the Snapchat app, you will be asked to login with an existing account or create a new one.

3- Add contacts. You can allow Snapchat to scan your contacts and see who else is a Snapchat user. You can then add any matches automatically. You can also add people one at a time by searching for their usernames.

4- Create the Snap. The Snapchat main interface automatically activates your phone's camera, allowing you to quickly line up shots. Tapping anywhere on the screen will adjust the focus of the camera.

5- Download the image. If you want to save the image before you send it out, tap the Download button at the bottom of the screen after you take the Snap.

6- Set the time limit.
