    did you tell them that they need a break from all of that kool-aid they're drinking? And that they need to keep a tight watch on a certain stock (aapl), because of all the market share they're losing AND the fact that instead of skyrocketing to 900 like projected, it in fact dropped substantially? Please. Let me have a whack at these guys.

    I have a 3rd gen iPod Touch, all you have to do is download the app via iTunes and port it onto the device using the iPhone Configuration Utility 3.6.1 for Windows

    It works perfectly, I have Facebook Camera, WhatsApp & I just tested SnapChat...No jailbreak required and this is all offical stuff here =)

    He probably has a low end Android, I have a feeling that low end Android users miss out on much more than we do.

    is it a full service on its own? like flickr and instagram- upload directing to site or is it some kind of portal where you have to upload to facebook/twitter?

    Just want to make you notice that this app I found tonight is really similar to snapchat (or Poke): Tiger Text | Store di app e giochi per Windows Phone (Italia)

    MS needs a roving app hit-squad... Have a team on the look out for up and coming apps on other platforms, set a benchmark (e.g. more than 10 000 daily users) and if that app hits the benchmark, offer the developers cash to develop the app for Windows Phone and RT. Even if you have to go out and develop the app yourself, do it but ensure you get the branding (e.g. like they did for FB). In fact, that might be a quicker and more efficient method (especially if you're looking at integration). And for God's sake, make sure you've got online banking, public transport, taxi and major shopping centre/mall apps covered. Yes, it's serious cash burning, but who cares if the pay-off sits in greater WP adoption, and thus WP license sales, increased Bing usage, etc.

    Do it Microsoft, do it... do it right.

    As a person who uses it I can tell you that's not what its for. I will say it will probably be useless in a couple months like Voxer.

    For YOU, it may not be used that way but I remember some ***** on Facebook asked me did I have snapchat so he could send me a picture. I was like why can't you just upload it to facebook...he's like because it's an x-rated pic.
    I did some googling and the vast majority of users are pre-teens, teens and college kids using it to sext one another and get around parent's peering eyes or so they don't have to worry about a person doing something wrong with their nudey.

    Another example: that's like saying you don't use instagram for the filters...while that may be true for YOU or someone else, the vast majority do use the filters.

    Its like a chicken & egg, Windows Phone sales needs to capture a good percentage of market share to make app development viable for the devs, but without apps Windows Phone will not be able to capture market share.

    It can be used for much more than "sexting". Not all of us want everything we do to be preserved for posterity... if you're at a party and you want to send a picture of someone who is there to someone else, but don't want to feel like you need to ask permission or worry where the picture will end up. Just an example. Regular picture sharing is like taking a picture with a camera and saving the picture, Snapchat is like saying "hey, look over there". It's a great idea, and WP8 NEEDS these small, popular apps. It won't survive by always being left out.

    I just recently joined this website so that I can recruit signatures to encourage the creation of Snapchat and Istagram clients for Windows Phone 8. Note that an account with change.org is required to sign, but the information is very minimal, and they do NOT spam your email. To support this cause: visit the links below. Thank you, and please no negative posts:
