There is also the danger of inappropriate images being shared (Snapchat has gotten the reputation of being the perfect 'sexting' app).
You should probably avoid sending anything personal as there are now many apps which allow you to save Snapchat photos.
The app saves your chat history so that you can search it any time.
Users can search for contacts via a tag entry, as well as switch to the first unread message in Chats with one tap.
What used to be considered a 'sexting' app is now evolving into a social network with its newest feature Snapchat Stories.
Regardless, Snapchat is still a good app for sending quick photo messages to friends as a hybrid between a messaging app and a social network.
Snapchat includes the option to share videos, as well as Snapchat Stories, which lets your friends view photos an unlimited number of times for up to 24 hours.
If you are feeling a little more adventurous, you can also dive into Snapchat's "Discover" option.
We Chat is a free Whatsapp-style social networking app, featuring HD video conferencing, QR code invites and a few other interesting features.
