Snapchat is a photo messaging application developed by 4 students of Stanford University. The app allows you to take pictures, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them or share them with whoever they want, the great thing is that the app allows you to control who sees what. Another great feature is that you can set a time limit for how long recipients can view your photos, the maximum limit is 10 seconds, after that the pictures will be hidden from the recipient’s device and deleted from the company’s servers.
