Taking secret screenshots on Snapchat is a cat and mouse game. Every time a users discover a new workaround, Snapchat finds a way to keep Snaps secure. The basic idea is that capturing a screenshot triggers a notification to the other party, making sure that communications stay private. Despite their best efforts, it remains possible to secretly screenshot a Snap. Let this also be a warning to anyone sharing with Snapchat: the privacy of communications in any app depends on both parties keeping their side of the deal.
Whether you need specific symbols for a technical paper or are simply looking to add some flavor to your social media posts, the iPhone keyboard doesn't have a very extensive library of symbols. You can find a few extra symbols by long pressing on certain keys like the '$' which will reveal a few other currency symbols, and you can find some in the emoji library like the trademark and copyright symbols, but they aren't really ideal (they don't appear as superscripts).
Well it was fun while it lasted. Snapchat will officially discontinue its Snapcash payments service on August 30th. After almost four years of partnership with Square to bring peer-to-peer payments to Snapchat, the company has confirmed the closure with no further explanation. Users will be notified within the app and through Snapchat's support site.
Snapchat has added the ability to delete messages, which is good news since we've all had messages we've sent and instantly regret. If you are quick enough, you might be able to delete your message before everybody or even anybody reads it. Simply long press on your message until a list of options pops up. Tap Delete.
Snapchat isn't giving up on wearable hardware launching its next-generation Spectacles on Thursday. The company's first foray into the hardware business didn't go well as demand for the original Spectacles waned, leaving the company stuck with hundreds of thousands of unsold units, according to reports. Snapchat blames "fragmented sales channels" as the reason for the failure, and has ditched the Snapbot distribution model. Originally consumers had to purchase Spectacles from vending machines randomly placed around the US. The limited distribution and high price of Spectacles resulted in overall lackluster sales of the first-generation glasses even though there was a high initial demand.
