Snapchat comes to Windows Phone in unofficial form

Snapchat has been gracing iOS and Android platforms for quite a while now, and there’s no denying that the app is a smash hit – with millions of photos shared on the service each and every day. Windows Phone users however have had to look on with envy, with Microsoft removing the old unofficial Snapchat app from the Windows Phone Store – with rumours that the official service was just around the corner.

Months later there’s still no official app, but at least there’s now a solution – with 6snap launching from popular developer Rudy Huyn, who has previously plugged gaps such as Instagram and Vine, both of which are now available in an official capacity.

Whilst 6snap is not an official app, it does feature all the things you would expect from an official solution – with notifications and the new Story mode. There are also a few Windows Phone exclusive features, including Lens support and a Live Tile.

The app is available for free in the Windows Phone Store here.
