    I never said owing us anything.
    You're right, you didn't actually use the term "owe". You did say, however, "but if they're not providing a service, then have no right to enforce how people use it." And "They don't have to maintain any app, they don't have to be responsible for any breach, they don't have to do anything, but they're blocking it anyways." Both make it sound like you think you have a right to use their service whether they want you to or not.

    I'm sure you guys wouldn't be as ok with Google only putting their products on their own stuff, Microsoft pulling every app from other platforms, and Apple getting rid of iTunes from Windows.
    Except for Google - which I don't use - I might be a bit put out. But that's a horrible analogy because SnapChat never supported Windows Phone, and so they never took anything away. A developer reverse-engineered their protocols - forged a Group 6 access - and they're talking about shutting that unauthorized access down. That's a VERY different scenario. Do you honestly not see that?

    so you're telling me that if you were Snapchat PR, you would say "I don't care if you can't afford another phone, youre gonna have to buy another one!"
    If I were SnapChat PR, I would say, "SnapChat is supported on iOS and Android using the official SnapChat app." Because that would be the reality of the situation, assuming, of course, that SnapChat doesn't make an official Windows Phone app and they do shut down third-party apps.

    Idk, Rudy is a smart and honest guy, I don't think he would say ignore it without a good reason. There's 2 ways I see this going. First is that Rudy is in contact with Snapchat, and since he is the only 3rd party app I have ever seen that actually follows the Snapchat rules, they may allow it (not publicly of course). The other way I see it, Rudy may have reverse engineered the official to make 6snap appear to be official.

    Personally I'm going to keep using 6snap, and if they ban my account, so be it cause I'm not leaving Windows Phone for an app.

    Pretty sure. I got the lock email myself. Not taking too many chances for now, and I'm going to avoid using it for the near future. Hopefully the snapchat team either caves or slaps out an app for us. How hard could it be?

    They will eventually, just because they haven't yet doesn't mean they won't.

    Because SnapChat doesn't already know how many 3rd-party app users they have?

    Rudy just updated 6snap to bypass Snapchats detection, update your apps everyone! Just changed my password and got back on. Here's hoping it works and I don't get permanently banned.

    Nope, only if your account is locked.

    It seems that the implementation of the new APIs in the latest upgrade DOESN'T save us from blocks
    At least Rudy is trying to contact snapchat

    The changelog says new API. If you look at the link I posted it confirms that.
