SwiftSnapper development put on temporary hold due to API issues


If you were hoping you’d be able to use SwiftSnapper, the third-party open source snapchat client for Windows 10 to send snaps anytime soon, you may be in for a slight disappointment.

Currently, SwiftSnapper makes use of APIs provided by the developer of Casper, a third-party snapchat app for Android in the same vein. However, due to a number of issues around security and apps spoofing Casper, the third-party developer is shutting down access to his public APIs to improve reliability of his own app.

The SwiftSnapper dev explained in a comment “We’re currently accessing Snapchat’s API by spoofing the app using Casper, to use Casper however we have to spoof the actual Casper client. Due to recent events there’s a bunch of upcoming security challenges on Casper’s end which we’ll need to address ASAP.”

From what we can see, it looks like Filiph is going to try to work with Casper devs to get this resolved. If he does, we’ll keep you posted…or you can follow the news yourself here on Github.
