    Hi guys,

    I have an idea.I would like to use snapchat on windows phone because is some kind interesting but I cannot because a big company like snapchat cannot afford to pay few developers to develop an app in few days...I think there is also some marketing but anyway I would like you to propose to spam snapchat with requests to make an app for windows phone.We could send them tweets and even contact them on snapchat.com
    If hundreds on people would contact them i'm sure they will do something.What do you think?

    Unfortunately falling market share says otherwise.

    Because a lot of people abandon wp because there is no snapchat...
    And more people on wp means more and better apps because developer are interested.

    So many Windows Phone users contacted SnapChuck via their support page they removed the option to request device support.



    SnapChat be all...

    Unfortunate but yes it's falling on deaf ears :( I miss snapchat too but it doesn't look like it's ever coming back to windows phone.

    well on the contrary, I think the community peaked in 2013-2014.

    Snapchat does not care. In fact, they care about not caring. Petitions have been done, I'm sure people spammed their Twitter and other channels. Rudy offered to give them his working 6snap or probably even do the work knowing him. But no, they are bent on no Snapchat on Windows Phone. If they could snap their metaphorical fingers and magically get Snapchat on Windows Phone, they will cut off their fingers to avoid the possibility of snapping them. Well, maybe that was a bit extreme.

    One thing I am glad is that there are some people within the windows community who are not thirsty for a trend and have no interests in this app. I refuse to install it on my android tablet. One for principal and two because the app sucks to me and shame such a crap app bas such persuasion it does.

    I am always amused when users will come up with the idea of "if we just all sent them an email" or "if Microsoft would just pay a bunch of developers" as if no one, including Microsoft themselves, had ever thought of this idea

    If the App Gap was that simple to solve, if would've been solved on day one!

    In fact I am still trying to motivate Starbucks, as I am totally convinced this tenth email will finally cause them to suddenly reply "Enough already! We give up, we'll build your app!!!" (Oh alright, I confess I'm not really lol)

    With Snapchat, it's not an issue of just market share. The founder of Snapchat is fighting a holy war against Microsoft.

    Yah this will either be announced at build or it won't happen.

    Take Valve, there's a steam community thread with thousands of people asking for their steam app but valve doesn't seem to care.

    I find that odd because Valve had say 10 million active users as their highest peak thus far. That's a blip if you think about phone share. But out of those 10 million there are likely a lot of windows phone users given there's a good 100 million out there. Windows phone users are more likely to also use windows and be gamers than ios users who are possibly using MACs. Windows 10 is already pretty much tied with windows 7 for users on steam. So while snapchat can afford to not care about 100 million users because in smart phones that's nothing. In valve's gaming business it's important to support. Even if say there's only 500,000 windows phone users, that's still a huge loss for them if they all leave. For snapchat that's nothing due to the 4.6 billion smartphone users out there. 100 million won't impact them, but it could impact Valve.
