Photo Sharing App Snapchat Adds Video, iPhone 5 Support




Snapchat today released an update adding video taking capabilities to its popular real-time picture taking app.

With Snapchat, users can take temporary photos and share them with friends. The photos expire after a set amount of time, up to 10 seconds, and are auto-deleted. Taking a screenshot alerts the picture sender, keeping photos private.

With the new 4.0.0 version of the app, video has been included. Up to 10 seconds of video can be recorded, with the same general rules. A video can only be watched once, and then it will be deleted.

Along with video, the update adds iPhone 5 support, speed improvements, and additional privacy settings.

Snapchat has become a hit in the year since its release, with more than 50 million photos shared every day. In comparison, Instagram users share five million photos a day.

Just last week, Snapchat closed a round of funding, raising more than $8 million, according to TechCrunch, setting its valuation at approximately $50 million.

Snapchat is a free download on the App Store for the iPhone. [Direct Link]
