Mastering the Camera Snapchat’s camera works a little differently than the default Android or i OS camera app, so it’s worth walking through.
Navigating the app also works a little differently here. To the 310 million monthly active Snapchat users, many of whom are in their teens and early 20s: Sorry, but old people are about to crash your party. And that is exactly why the app is exploding in use, even recently overtaking Twitter in terms of daily users.(I’m not even 40, and I’m one of them.) To the hip kids who have grown up with the four-year-old short video sharing app: It is with regrets that admittedly I may even incorrectly explain some of how this service—with its myriad of odd features—works. A social network where people share photos and short videos for just 24 hours, Snapchat is the answer to the Internet’s problem of never forgetting.If you want something longer than that, you’ll need to build a Snapchat Story, which is what the third button at the bottom left is for, but more on that later.The second button is a download button so you can save your snaps to your smartphone, which doesn’t happen automatically.
