Since Snapchat asked for Swapchat to be removed from the Windows Phone Store we have been waiting with bated breath for an official version to arrive.
So far there has been very little sign, and now there is an interesting rumour suggesting the wait will be a for a while longer.
According to blogger Michael Faro-Tusino the app is waiting for the next minor update to Windows Phone, GDR3, scheduled for November/December, which will introduce an API which will notify apps when a screen shot is being taken.
This will allow Snapchat to inform their users that a screen shot has been taken, an important part of the normal functioning of the service.
Of course there is no verification for the rumour, but if true it means we will not have to wait too long to sext in safety.
Thanks Al for the tip.
