Hello everyone, you can now download Snapchat for Android, before you do that, I hope you are all having a great day so far. My week on the other hand has been good. I had a chance to visit some family that I haven’t seen in like 2 years so that was great. Anyway, I have an awesome Android app I want to show you, please read on…
Today we will highlight an awesome Android app that most of you probably have now heard of but haven’t found a reason to join in like everyone else. I present to you, Snapchat. Ignore the weird bland name, the beauty in this app lies in it’s community. Tons of videos from real people like you and me for you to browse and subscribe to. It’s basically YouTube but without the Vevo music videos. Lol, let’s see what makes this fun to use.
What Is Snapchat About?
Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University, and developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc.
One of the principal concepts of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are only available for a short time before they become inaccessible.
The prototype for Snapchat was started by Brown and Spiegel as a project for one of Spiegel’s classes at Stanford, where Spiegel was a product design major. Beginning as “Picaboo”, the idea was to create a selfie app (application) which allowed users to share images that were explicitly short-lived and self-deleting.
The temporary nature of the pictures would therefore encourage frivolity and emphasize a more natural flow of interaction
