If we talk about the most popular photo sharing cum chat app, Snapchat is the one which tops the chart. Although we have Instgram in same category but people can not chat with friends through instagram.
Snapchat is available for Android and iOS devices only but I will demonstrate how to get Snapchat for PC.
This app was created mainly for young people who like to have fun with their college friends by sharing their funny snaps and chat with them but today, more and more people have started to use it. Today when the app is not that old, it managed to make millions of people to download it.

The best and unique feature of Snapchat that we do not find in any other app is that whenever you share photo with your friends, it get deleted from the server within 24 hours.
So although all apps are secure but knowing the photos you are sharing with your will get deleted from server in few hours gives a sense of security in our mind.
Why should you use Snapchat?
If you are among those who like to click their photos and share with different people Snapchat is the ideal choice.
Once you download this app freely for iOS/Android devices from their respective app stores and after registering an account, you can start sharing photos with your friends right away.
Registering an account will require you to fill email, DOB and mobile no. however if you want to add someone or want to get added to someone’s friend list, you need not to share your mobile number as in case of WhatsApp, Viber etc.
You just need to share Snapchat username to ask your friend (or someone with whom you do not want to share mobile number) to add you. After successful creation of account, you can click a photo, add caption and share with whomsoever you want.
They will see your photo, laugh at it and in few hours the photo will disappear from their screen unless they take a screenshot of it.
The other interesting thing about snapchat is, the app notifies in case any of the friend is online at the same time you do. If you find any friend online, you can video chat with him/her face to face with excellent video quality. So that’s a plus!
