iPhone users must have heard of the app called Snapchat. It lets you send a self destructing picture and control how long it is visible to the person who receives it. For obvious reasons, the app is considered as a means of safe sexting.
The cool little app has now been used to share 110 million photos that each disappear after a set time limit, and a community manager and two engineers have been hired, which means Snapchat is getting bigger and an Android version is on the way.
For iOS, an update has been scheduled to be released by the end of June, including password recovery, bug fixes, a faster camera and the option to draw on photos before sending.
It was New York Times that brought this app to the limelight, saying it was being used to send indiscreet photos. However, co-founder Evan Speigel does not agree that this is a sexting app. “I am not convinced that the whole sexting thing is as big as the media make it out to be. I just don’t know people who do that. It doesn’t seem that fun when you can have real sex,” he substantiates.
