Snapchat is currently one of the most popular messaging apps that receives multiple downloads every day. The app has created quite a stir among the youths from all over the globe.

Apart from Snapchat, the concept of volatile, self-vanishing images also became popular.  Many other inventors came up with apps that had the same concept. So, if you are planning to try something new, here is a list of some of the best apps like Snapchat.

Top 6 Apps Like Snapchat

1. Burn Note

Burn Note offers Snapchat-like privacy and it enables users to communicate securely. Their conversations are automatically deleted after some time and the chat is not available anywhere. The sender, however, needs to set a timer so that as soon as the recipient opens the message, the timer starts automatically.

Burn Note’s Website claims that there are no standby servers. Therefore, there are no copies of the conversations either. It is also tough for recipients to quickly copy the contents of the conversation.

2. Wickr

Wickr is an instant messenger for Android and iOS that allows users to send ‘end-to-end encrypted’ and volatile messages. The messages can be in the form of texts, images, videos, files etc. This is one of the best apps like Snapchat as the messages sent on Wickr too are self-destructive in nature and disappear after few minutes.

You can also send media files to your connections without leaving any trace. There is also an option to add filters and edit image before sending. You can add your friends n the app performing a simple search.

3. Slingshot

Slingshot allows you to send temporary messages and you can even respond to your friends’ media by creating your own photos or videos. Once you click a photo or video, you can either choose the ‘reshoot’ option to take another shot. Or pick the second option that allows you to edit it and send.

4. Clipchat

Clipchat is another app that works like Snapchat, by allowing to send self-vanishing pictures with a simple touch interface. The app has an elegant interface and is simpler than its alternative. When you send a photo through Clipchat, the image first appears blurred.

When the recipient clicks on it, an animation effect appears, and it can now be seen clearly. The default in Clipchat is video sharing. The sender is also informed if the recipient tries to take a screenshot of the message.

5. Yovo

This app overcomes the main shortcoming of Snapchat as it does not allow the recipient to take a screenshot of the message. In case the recipient tries to take a screenshot of a message, the screen becomes blurred. So, the screenshot becomes useless.

6. Cyberdust

Cyberdust has amazing features and apart from sending self-destructive images, it also has other amazing features. You can send images, stickers, URL’s, animations and GIFs, which disappear after a few minutes.

You can even pin sent messages to remember the conversation. All media sent through Cyberdust are encrypted to avoid unauthorized use. It notifies the sender in case the recipient takes a screenshot of the message.
