Snapchat

We still don’t have an official Snapchat application on Windows Phone, but we do have 6snap. It’s the unofficial (but great) third-party client for Snapchat. The app has worked well since launch and gained impressive features that you can’t get with the official apps on iOS or Android. Though today’s update brings a feature you technically can get with the others. The ability to take screenshots is now supported.

Technically speaking, it’s been a slow week, mostly due to the hangover from last week’s holiday festivities. In reality though, you probably have noticed that developers have been busy tweaking and improving their apps. We’ve covered a bunch of ‘em but there are still more. Today, we know of two pretty big updates that are well worth your time.

Both Miniclip’s Rail Rush, a freebie and Nokia exclusive game, got a Christmas bonus and Huyn’s Snapchat client, 6snap, received a few new features as well. Here are the details.

Rudy Huyn’s Snapchat client 6snap so far has survived being an unofficial clone of the popular messaging app. That’s the good news for those worried about an immediate copyright complaint.

The even better news is that after this week’s 1.1 update, version 1.2 has just been submitted to the Store. It won’t arrive probably at least until Monday, but in case you want a heads up, here’s what is coming.

If there’s one app left standing for Windows Phone users, it would be Snapchat. The popular photo messaging app that allows your pics to ‘expire’ after a pre-determined viewing time does not have an official client for Windows Phone, but today we have the next best thing.

Developed by Rudy Huyn, the mind behind 6tag and 6sec, also very popular unofficial apps for Instagram and Vine, 6snap has been in the works for the last few weeks. Today, the app is available to all with Windows Phone 8 devices and it does not disappoint.

Head past the break for our video first-look and more information on where to get it.

While an official Snapchat client is still a ways off, developers are trying their hand once again at clone apps for Windows Phone 8

We’ve seen unofficial Snapchat (snapchat.com) clients come and go for Windows Phone. The popular imaging service that prides itself on photos that “expire” after a short, pre-determined viewing time is one of the few holdouts for Microsoft’s platform.  There was talk of an official client coming to Windows Phone, but complications related to API requirements i.e. disabling screen capturing, has reportedly put the project on hold.

Two popular Windows Phone developers, Den Delimarsky (Beem, Beem Sky.FM, EnTrance) and Rudy Huyn (6tag, 6sec, Wikipedia) are both racing to create the ultimate unofficial Snapchat app for Windows Phone.

Presently, Delimarsky’s ‘Snapback’ client is the most advanced in development, being at beta version 1.16, with daily updates. The app is currently in closed-beta, meaning it is invite-only and it will probably be another week or two before it is submitted to the Windows Phone store. It’s not clear if the app will pass, or if it does pass, whether the Snapchat company will allow a clone app to remain available.

Just over one week ago, we received word that Swapchat, the first fully functional app that can access Snapchat on Windows Phone was being pulled. The reason was due to a copyright complaint from the Snapchat makers, who legally exercised their right to protect their content.

That was an unfortunate blow to Windows Phone users who were enjoying the service and it was very different from the ‘turn the other cheek’ approach of Instagram and Instance.

Now we can we verify that Swapchat Free (but not the paid version) is back in the Store and can be downloaded to your Windows Phone 7.x or 8 device.

Well this is certainly a real bummer, folks. Swapchat, the popular unofficial Snapchat app for Windows Phone, has been pulled due to a copyright complaint filed by Snapchat. While there's the potential good news of an official client on the way for Microsoft's platform, until that day comes consumers are going to be stuck with no third party alternative.
