Third party SnapChat app, Snap2Chat is making steady progress. Only recently landing in BlackBerry World, it has just been updated to v1.1. It's a small update but a big one at the same time. There are no new features added only that it has received headless approval. So, for those who do use Snap2Chat frequently, you can get notifications without having to keep the app open in an Active Frame. I feel I may see more use with Snap2Chat now that it is headless.
Since the free version doesn't do notifications, the headless feature is only available with the full paid version. There are some bug fixes with this update too. The developer will of course continually iron out bugs that may arise. Note, that while the app has gone headless it isn't fully integrated into the Hub yet, you'll just get the general notifications in the Notifications tab. The developer, Nemory Studios, is looking to bring Hub integration soon. And of course, we'll let you know when that drops.
We'll bring a hands-on review real soon, comparing it to the official Android port too, so watch this space.
Snap2Chat is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices. The introductory sale is still ongoing at $0.99, so if you're still thinking about getting the full version, now may be the time to get it. Full price is $1.99. If you want to see what it's all about before diving in, Snap2Chat Lite is the free version.
As usual, if the update isn't showing yet, just give it a bit as it caches through the BlackBerry World servers.
