The creators of Snapchat like to think of it as a camera. Not the classical type that comes with a lens cap and a flashbulb. It represents a new kind of camera that allows you to remain in touch with either your friends or the rest of the world. There are over 180 million people that choose to use it every day for playing, learning or talking – you can use it for some fun pictures as well.
Snapchat will allow you to take on the world in a new way with every day that passes. This happens as you tap the screen on your face to try a new look, to swap faces with someone else or you can even play games. Once you take a selfie you can swipe to add some artwork which is based on your location or on what is going on around yourself.
Also, if you are a big fan of emojis, you would love the fact that you can make your own personal emoji. Watch as your miniature self-comes to life by either sparking up some stickers or joining you in augmented reality. On Snapchat you can find a Bitmoji for every mood and a Friendmoji for every friend.
It used to be that special effects were really… special – well, that’s how they got that name after all. However, this app takes special effects and turns them simple. You will be able of turning day into night, grant a chipmunk voice to your coworkers or create some stickers with your pets or friends.
By using Snapchat you will create a canvas from the rest of the world and it will provide you a lot of tools to have fun with. Last but not least, you can travel the world by using the Snap Map, where users from all over the place add videos or photos on a daily basis.
