    Hi guys, I've just receive this mail from snapchat:

    Hi lowbounce,

    We've noticed that you're using a third-party application to access Snapchat, putting yourself (and possibly your friends) at risk. Please change your password and stop using third-party applications when you access Snapchat.

    For more information, or to change your password, please visit:
    snapchat.com/locked

    Thanks,
    Team Snapchat
    I'm using 6snap and they might block my account for good but that's kind of annoying because on windows phone we don't have an official snapchat app. I hope that they'll annouce an app ASAP or, at least, that they'll not block me or everyone using 6snap. I'll try to change my password and see what's happend.

    True, and for most platforms (iOS and Android) Snapchat has official apps. I don't understand why it took them two years to a) decide that they won't develop a WP app and b) NOT buy Rudy's app (fully developed, stable and functional) off him, make it more official and then rename it Snapchat and put it on the Store. Or, c) why didn't they hire him?!!! It took one man one month to develop a fully functioning snapchat client with MORE features than the official apps. Surely, it doesn't take too long to put some effort into an official app if they're pulling the rug out from third-party clients.

    Time to put some pressure on snapchat team to develop an official Snapchat app or leave us on WP using 6 snap. I'm waiting for mail to show up.

    Isn't that like going to McDonald's and then complaining that you can't get a rib eye steak?

    What Team Snapchat should really come out and say to the WP users is " STOP USING WPs". That's exactly what they're saying right now and to that I say FU/FO, DROP DEAD, GET A LIFE, WP IS THE BEST, CREATE AN APP WORTHY OF WP!!!!

    Snapchat might actually agree with you that WP is the best. They are looking at users though.

    I still find it hard to believe how users here buy a phone they know is neglected by developers, and then complain about lack of support. Maybe another one-liner is in order:

    Would you move to Minnesota and then complain that it's not fair how your friend who moved to Phoenix enjoys balmy winters?

    I have a windows phone because i love the OS and don't need that many apps. I have all the main apps i use often. I don't use snapchat often but I still want to voice my support and help convince devs to support the platform more.

    Yes I know. And I see your point. But like most things in life, it comes with compromises. You choose WP knowing full well that you won't get the developer support you'd like. It's still your choice.

    There is nothing unfair about it. Snapchat is a private business that can support or not support whoever they please. They don't owe anybody anything. I doubt they have a vested interest in blocking users, so there must be a valid reason for doing what they're doing with 3rd party apps. Security maybe?

    The response to 80% of the posts here is: Then stop using SnapChat. Its not a right as an american to use it. They dont have an official WP app, screw them then. SnapChat will be gone by the end of 2015 anyway. Its not the next twitter...

    I bought WP way before I knew about snapchat. I started using snapchat about a month ago but I'm using it hard since than. It's not my fault that they don't have an app for WP.

    AFAIK Snapchat have announced a public API but I suspect that it won't be here quick enough to save 6snap, we'll have to wait and see. Might be worth heading here and putting in your vote for Windows Phone:

    Than this will probably take some time :(. I will try using the tablet more until this situation is resolved. I didn't get the mail from them yet though.

    Make your voice heard on Twitter. Maybe some things would change if we collectively as a large group made our voices heard to Snapchat that we deserve an app. That's right - DESERVE

    I don't get the surprise by so many. Snapchat devs are within their right to block the use of their work product especially since Rudy didn't pay for it nor have permission to build onto it. At the same time it should be clear that WP want to use this app and they should be good sports and allow us in. But if they don't, you get get to steal from them then get incensed when they change the locks.

    I think this tweet from Rudy should demonstrate alone to Snapchat how important having an app for WP should be to them...
