Momentum seems to be building around Swiftsnapper, the open source Snapchat client for Windows Phone.
The app, which is a mere 5 days old, can now already log into Snapchat’s servers and see a list of the Snaps which have been sent to you.
The app is now under very active development, with 8 contributors and more than 75 commits, with progress being documented in this thread here.
The project has 3 challenges – first to create a functional app, secondly to evade Snapchat’s account ban hammer and thirdly to be resistant to legal threats by Snapchat.
The first hurdle seems to be rapidly falling, and the second will still need to become an issue. Due to Windows 10 Mobile’s ability to sideload applications, the last would benefit greatly from the project rapidly progressing to release.
We would therefore urge skilled developers who want Snapchat access on Windows Phone to contribute their expertise to the project to advance it to release (which would effectively make it unkillable) as rapidly as possible.
Developers so inclined can contribute at Github here.
