If we look at the lists of the most downloaded applications in the App Store and Google Play, with total security we will find ourselves in the first positions. Since it officially hit the market in 2010, it has not stopped growing and currently has millions of users around the world, who greatly enjoy all the features of this more than interesting application.
Which has always had in mind a possible purchase, for a huge amount of money. Currently, this popular application, with hints of social networking is run by Snap Inc.
If we had to explain the possibilities that Snapchat offers us, it would certainly be complicated, since currently, the range of functionalities that it offers us is very wide. Although yes, the most important is still to record videos or take pictures using some of the available filters, which change from time to time so that no one can fall into boredom.
These filters are very varied, and even though many other applications have tried to copy them, none has managed to find the key to success. Using some of the many that are available, we can be an adorable rabbit, a real private investigator, or look like we’ve gone on vacation to some paradisiacal Caribbean Island.
After Downloading Snapchat and opening the app, the first thing you can see in front of you is your (front) camera, in other words, you are ready to take a selfie. If you just push the button, you can push the star filters, it’s that simple. If you hold your finger down and keep swiping, you can add two filters at once, which is impressive. The app is a bit more interactive, and you can manipulate your images by adding some date or time for example.
Another basic thing about Snapchat is adding some text. Tapping on the screen and if you tap on the little T in the top corner, it will resize your text so you can move it around and add colors or emojis. You can even use emojis as templates so for example let’s say you want to draw a unicorn you can get unicorn emoji put it wherever you want and then use the colors and draw over it and stroke it with whatever colors you want and then just delete the emoji.
When you swipe down with your finger, the main profile page will drop down smoothly, and you may need to add your avatar. Your avatar can be just one picture of you, but also five quick pictures that make something like a gif animation. This is cool compared to a single image, it gives a space for more creativity.
If you go to user settings and then scroll down to Manage you can turn on Travel Mode. This will make your stories and other people’s snaps do not upload automatically so. You’ll have to click on them to charge them and you will only save a lot of battery and data. Also in the Settings is the Friends Emojis section. So you know those emojis that appear with each person’s name. You can see what they mean, and you can also change them, which is great.
If you want to know if your friends added you back. You could check this by clicking on your friend’s profile. If you see their snap score under their name. That means they added you back. But if you don’t, you will only see their name User ID means you have added them. But they haven’t added you back.
You will find all this and much more when you download the Snapchat application. You will be able to have fun like never before!
In addition, any user has the possibility of taking photos or videos. Adding not only the filters that we have talked about but also texts or different drawings. This can be shared with other contacts, for a limited time. Something that many other applications. Such as Instagram have “copied”. Although in some cases without the success of Snapchat.
– Don’t abuse Snapchat filters or sooner or later your friends will end up hating you
– Keep a close eye on your smartphone because Snapchat uses the camera continuously, in addition to being permanently connected to the network of networks
