Want to Snapchat on Your Windows Phone? Give Rudy Huyn’s 6Snap App a Try

Despite the fast-improving app situation on Windows Phone, there are still a few calling, messaging, and push to talk apps missing in the Windows Phone Store. Not many, but a few.

One of these gaping holes is due to the lack of an official Snapchat app on the platform, but 3rd party developer Rudy Huyn — the developer behind great hits such as 6tag and a Wikipedia app for Windows Phone — has you covered in the meantime with 6Snap.

6Snap works every bit as good (and in some cases better) than Snapchat on iOS or Android.

6Snap is certainly full featured and works every bit as good (and in some cases better) than Snapchat on iOS or Android. In our tests, the application was very snappy and fast. Coupled with Nokia’s high quality photo lenses, it really makes 6Snap feel like a more “premium” experience when compared to its iOS or Android official counterpart.

Like official Snapchat, 6Snap gives users the ability to take photos and videos, add captions, and send them to friends.

More features include:

  • share pictures and videos with snapchat users
  • post snaps on your story
  • see stories, best friends and score of your friends
  • draw and add text to your pictures
  • search snapchat friends on your phone
  • save your picture on your phone
  • front and back camera
  • manage your snapchat privacy
  • notifications with custom ringtone
  • Lense support
  • extend the picture hub (share menu, etc..)
  • live tile

If you’d like to give it a try for yourself, get it in the Windows Phone Store.

    My 6snap isn’t working properly and wont let me log in because it is saying ‘failed to connect’ i would like it if you made the OFFICIAL snapchat available for windows phone as i think it is unfair that it is such a good phone but something small isn’t available

    how do people from snapchat search for your name on 6snap? are all the names in the same kind of database? like if on 6snap if my name was unique1, could someone from snapchat have the same name, so if a snapchat user searches for me they find someone completely different from me? or do they compare usernames for both apps so everything between the 2 is unique?

    im not sure if this was clear or not….

    • Hi!

      6snap literally works like Snapchat so if you register or are currently registered for Snapchat in the application, you won’t notice any difference.

      You can search for friends by swiping to the right screen from the photo shoot screen to get to your friends list and then tapping on the “person” icon in the upper right corner. From there, swipe to the right again to access the Search screen and search for your friend’s Snapchat ID. 🙂

    If I already have an account with snapchat, would I be able to connect it with 6snap or have to make a new account entirely?

      Hi Michael!

  • GeorgeTheRipper

    Is this a secure app?

    • It was, but unfortunately Snapchat blocked 3rd party apps so this app will no longer work.
