6snap not working post-update 1.3? There's a patch on the way


Snapchat is one of those photo messaging services that, much like Instagram in the past, fails to have an official app for Windows Phone. Rudy Huyn answered the call by publishing 6snap to the store, an unofficial client enabling you to connect and enjoy the experience wrapped up in a Modern UI.

Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that a fair number of users have begun to experience issues with the app itself after a recent 1.3 update. Should you reside in Brazil or Norway, you may encounter trouble attempting to use 6snap. The good news is Huyn is aware of the problems and has worked to include a patch for version 1.3.1.

RudyHuyn 6snap 1.3.1 Update

Unfortunately, there's no ETA on 1.3.1, though it has been re-submitted but we'll be sure to update you all once it's live. If you haven't already got 6snap installed, you can grab the app for free from the Windows Phone Store.

After updates also I am still not able to load video snaps which I get.
anyone else having this issue?

Steephill says:

It's been working perfect for me, really wish it had a screenshot function though. Whenever I use the normal method it just locks the screen.

Snapchat hates screenshot

MilkyTee says:

But is it feasibly possible on WP? Or have you just disabled the ability so as not to anger Snapchat? Fantastic app by the way, you're the best WP dev out there.

WilsonBlaze says:

The effort here is for media to be temporary, if you want a permanent copy why not have the person send it to you over SMS type apps? What's the purpose of trying to circumvent the app

Some précision. 1.3 has added 13 languages and it cause problem when strings are too long for example. Crash are on 2 markets :
- Norvegian: crash at startup: critical
- Brazilian: crash when app is launched from photo hub (picture>share>6snap) : minor

All translation have been fixed and submitted Saturday, so available wednesday

Rudy, do you mind telling us why there is no official snapchat app? I love your app and I will still use it. But WPcentral said July was a projected release date and its almost 2014.

Tafsern says:

How is it even possible that Rudy knows that?

Piro.Garay says:

And how is it possible that you know what Rudy knows or doesn't know? If he doesn't then he'll just say he doesn't know.
WP95 asked a simple question but people on here like to make a big deal out of little things.
