6Snap, Snapchat for WP8, Snapchat for Windows Phone

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.
