Over the past little while now we've heard from a few developers working on native Snap Chat clients for BlackBerry 10 but none having been as vocal about it as NemOry, developer of Droid Store, Where's My Phone and more. After having laid out the basics of the app previously, NemOry has been working hard to get a beta release out and it's now available. You'll need to grab your USB cables and load up the .BAR file to test things out but once that's over here's what you can expect.

Again, this is a public beta so not everything is in place yet but it's off to a fantastic start and should you download it and give it a go, please offer up feedback to NemOry on how to further improve the app. You can do so in the CrackBerry Forums or through the various other options listed on his announcement post.
