    Wasn't the big thing about why Snapchat wouldn't develop for Windows Phone because they needed an API?

    If there no API changes, are we not getting Snapchat?

    Probably not this iteration, it's a bit cheeky though. Someone makes an app that needs a specific function and rather than programmatically or otherwise finding a workaround they ask to change the platform itself. I would be surprised if this feature even came in 8.1.

    I guess this is the case, unless the api is private and only available to snapchat

    They could've at least made a screenshot button overtop of the picture

    The problem I don't think there is a valid work around. Screenshot notifications are central to the whole idea of snapchat, without that functionality they can't release a WP app. I'm almost positive MS will add it in 8.1. Snapchat is a popular enough app that people would think twice about using WP if it isn't available. Similar to Instagram.

    I'd imagine it would come with 8.1. With the rumor of a notification center, I'd imagine Microsoft would vastly improve the way notifications work with everything and realize that live tiles can't do everything.
