    Does anybody know why taking screenshots is blocked on 6snap?
    Its allowed on the genuine one as you get an notification when someone does it.

    I ask this because I wanted to screenshot a funny picture from a friend of mine, but ever since this is the only app that I can actually log in with I have no other means of saving that pic:(

    Rudy why u block dis?

    I mean, Rudy, why did you block this?

    There is no API for him to know if the user takes a screenshot or not, so he decided to just block it. This way it does not create an uproar and Snapshot asks him to take it down. Its for your own good.

    And I think we all know what you mean by "funny picture" ;)

    oh It weren't nudes or something like that ๐Ÿ˜ƒ .
    It was a picture of me and some friends being way to drunk ๐Ÿ˜…

    Anyway I was just wondering, I'm just hoping for a official app coming (not to insult Rudy, but official apps bring more WP users)

    The answer is posted in the 6snap FAQ

    Is it possible to make screenshot?
    No, it's one of the key feature of snapchat and its purpose: be able to send private pictures (you understand ;-)). Snapchat makes all its possible to prevent screenshots, but on some platforms, they are no solution to remove them totally so they send a notification to picture sender.But to be clear, they hates screenshots and they make all their possible to eradicate them. 6snap is a unofficial app, so to respect snapchat, I need also to make all my possible to prevent screenshots, it's the only way to collaborate with snapchat team and respect them. I expect you understand
