    Not if all your friends use Snapchat. Good luck getting everybody to switch!


    Just to be clear, you're saying that getting a faceless and rather evil company to actually do something pro consumer so you too can join your friends in transmitting [frequently] personal images under their "privacy" policy (images forever stored in a loosely secured server long after you've thought them erased) is easier than trying to leave the service? Or, more preferable than not seeing that picture of your friend's cat?

    Snapchat is already working on a WP app, and has stated so several times.
    Source?

    I don't need the app as none of my friends use it, but did not hesitate to sign the petition for WP users who actually need this app :-)

    Snapchat is already working on a WP app, and has stated so several times. I fail to understand why all the people who are wanting snapchat are ignoring this fact. Creating and signing a petition won't get it here any faster. It will be released when the app is completed.

    This isn't the only service available. And, as far as I'm concerned, is a service which is very unwise to even use. Thinking you can send a picture of anything you want because it will be deleted from another person's phone is a ludicrous idea, because if the other person wants to keep the picture, they just do a screenshot, then share it on the web for all to see. Do you really think you're being sneaky?

    I'm not signing, because I would personally rather see all of these services go away. I won't sign something that's basically condoning porn, because we all know that's most likely what 97% of its users are using it for. I say 97%, because we all know the 3% that are WP users wouldn't even think about using it that way, because we're better than that. Right?
    Alright, this post is so full of failed rhetoric I can't tell if it's serious or not. It is not a known fact that snapchat is developing a WP app as they actually haven't said anything about it at all. If they have please post a source link proving their (Snapchat) statement.

    It's important to support the cause because snapchat it's a must have app for many people, specially teens in the US.

    Huh? I'm not sure what you're getting at. You will have to put names in place of "faceless and rather evil company" and "their". I'm a little dense!

    I reread the article about the snapchat WP app. It stated it is "rumored" to be being developed, which means you are right, it is not known for sure.

    Still, about 100,000 snapchat photos posted online by hackers earlier this year shows how there is no such thing as a secure service. That didn't even involve a friend taking a screenshot. I'm sure you heard about them being posted on 4chan? If not, google it, it's there.

    People expecting an auto-destruct service to give them security against the people they are sending something to is ludicrous, though. I'll stand by that, even if it is just my opinion, seeing as how this opinion is played out on the internet every day to prove my point.

    Yeah, I'm serious.

    I don't think that we will be able to make a huge difference to the situation. It will be worth trying, but not having a snap chat app will continue to hamper the platform. Without a snap chat app it is impossible to get young teenagers on the platform.

    Come on people. Show support. WCentral has more than enough users to make this petition get noticed. I don't use Snapchat but I signed it.
    Maybe WCentral authors could help us with some kind of article.

    I'd say the magic number would be 10,000 signatures. Then we'll get someones attention.

    Contact evan@snapchat.com! That's the CEOs email address, I think we should all email him and fill his inbox and tell him that we deserved to be treated equally with Android and iOS!

    Thanx everyone for signing my petition and sharing it, but please share it more to other sites and share the link to WPcentral in an email or something! We need to get more supporters and faster! If WPcentral would share this in an article we maybe had 15000 now! Just maybe... but there's so many users on this network so please share it so much as you can to WPcentral! If they make an article I have to change the goal number!...

    I saw an article over at pcworld about this. What sucks is they are spreading misinformation by saying that Vine, Instagram and YouTube don't exist in Windows phone either. I don't have a pcworld account but if anyone does please set them straight.

    Signing the change.org petiton now!

    I wonder how much it would take for Snapchat to sit up and take notice. According to this DMR article, it has 100 million monthly active users. I don't know how credible DMR is, but other sources seem to back up that number.

    I just said 10,000 may get their attention. But you're probably right, millions needed for actual action

    It cost close to 100 grand to create a mobile app. There just isn't enough motivation for them to create one for WP. I am an avid WP user, I love the platform. But sadly I think it isn't going to survive. Carriers, Devs and mobile users aren't buying into the platform. Sad really
