Snapchat is a social network that focuses on creating stories – posted photos or images that are available for a short period of time. It is available for free on Android and iOS and has more than 300 million monthly active users.
Features: Share the Moments
Snapchat is designed specifically for sharing stories, and all the features of the app correspond to that idea. The developers offer you a simple and functional way to share moments with your friends or with people you don’t know yet. The editing tool is pretty flexible and allows you to create a highly customizable story quickly.
The sharing is also interesting as it is highly customizable as well: you can post stories available for everyone, set regional restrictions to show them to those who are in your town, or send content to different chats. The variety of the visual effects available in the editing tool is also impressive: you can customize your snaps with so many features that it will take hours just to test them all.
Design, interface & usability: Intuitive Creators Tool
The best thing about Snapchat is its smooth user experience. It is achieved by the great design of the app, both in visual and functional terms. The app looks pleasing to the eye and is perfectly structured: it is very easy to find the necessary features and menus. And the editor’s tool is one of the big reasons for the platform’s popularity as it is extremely intuitive and, at the same time gives you great editing opportunities. The navigation is also great: you will have to spend a little time getting familiar with the structure, but you will be impressed with how easy it becomes to use Snapchat later.
Security: They Have Finally Encrypted Snaps
In the past, Snapchat used to be in the center of a security scandal almost every year. There were data breaches and cases, in which the Snapchat employees spied on people. The problem was that the Snaps were not encrypted: most users were sure the chats are private and save as the snaps disappear quickly, but they were stored on the company’s servers for a month after sending it. In 2019 the company introduced end-to-end encryption for snaps, and Snapchat seems to be more safe and private now.
Conclusion: Awesome 5/5
Snapchat is a great social network, which allows you to share content with your friends, meet other people, or just create beautiful works in the editing tool. The only drawback of this network was the security, but with the implementation of the end-to-end encryption things got better. Snapchat is free to use, and we definitely recommend at least checking it out.
