If you don’t know about Snapchat, the service lets you send photos and videos that self destruct. It is very popular over the past year. Despite the security breach that compromised phone numbers and usernames of more than 4.6 million users even.
Everyone wants a piece of the action. Google and Facebook were both reportedly trying to acquire the company, offering as much as $4 billion, but both were turned down. As Snapchat continues to grow, it hasn’t said if it has any plans to bring the service over to desktop computers. But we do have some news about the possibility of being able to use Snapchat on a Mac. You can. And Snapped is a new app that lets you do it.
The app was developed by two university students behind ThnkDev, and is compatible with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and is going to be released in the Mac App Store soon. You just need to sign into Snapchat, choose the time you want the snap to be displayed at the recipient’s end and click send. The Mac’s front camera is used to take snaps, and you will have the ability to upload pictures from the onboard storage. The app will also give you access to sent messages, items in the inbox, friends list and the ability to send messages straight from the app. In the near future, Snapped will also come with the ability to add text and filters to snaps. If this sounds interesting, the app is going to be available soon as a free download. Then you can snapchat from your Mac all you want.
