Snapchat is an extremely popular and entertaining new app that allows you to take pictures and send them to your friends. The catch? There’s a time limit for the viewer of the photo, and they can only view the photo once. After you take your picture, you have the option of typing a message, or using a paint brush tool to draw on yourself. Once your picture is complete, you choose the number of seconds the photo can be viewed for, and send it off to your friends. When it is sent you will get updates on your history dock. For example when it was received, whether or not it was opened, and if your friend managed to screenshot it.

The app is great because you can surprise your friends and your jokes can stay private. You can snapchat for hours because you’re trying to keep the conversation going, by relying on your memory only. You can send as many Snapchat’s as you want to whomever you would like, but once your snapchat has been viewed, it can never be viewed again. As a funny and fabulous way to pass time, as well as communicate, this free app is one that should definitely be on your dock.

Pros:
*It’s private
*You can to choose the settings for the picture
*You can customize the pictures

Cons:
*You can only see the picture once
*People can screenshot your picture
