Snapchat is the trendy application of the moment. Here are some tips for using the ephemeral photo sharing application

In spite of immense success with young people, Snapchat is by no means the easiest app for Android, first because of the ephemeral nature of the members' publications, then because of the originality of its concept Which, quite paradoxically, is also one of the main factors of its popularity.
However, when you have just downloaded Snapchat and created an account on the social network, you either become addicted or you decide to close the application and never open it again. If you opt for the second solution, then you miss out on one of the most trendy social networks of the moment, which would still be a pity. Reason why we offer today our top 20 tips and tricks to better use Snapchat .
To start and if not already done, download Snapchat in the Play Store by clicking on the image below:
