It was not too long ago that we saw a native third party Snapchat app land on BlackBerry 10. Well, not officially. Snap2Chat was made available in beta, via the CrackBerry Forums and it required some sideloading to get it up and running. Being in beta meant there would still be bugs and not fully complete. The forums have been busy with beta testers giving feedback on the app and, NemOry, the developer has been working hard to fix bugs and add more features.

Today we see an update to Snap2Chat beta. There is a long list of improvements.

BUGS FIXED:

  • Error Line 1, Column 1 etc..
  • Camera Opens on Start even not logged in now fixed
  • --and more.. can't remember all


IMPROVEMENTS:

  • camera orientation fixed and more better (untested in the Z30, really need your feedback to this, when reporting please post a screenshot and tell if it is from a portrait or landscape and from front or rear camera)
  • added ultra quality snap
  • tap to focus in snap2chat camera
  • timer picker button now easy to tap
  • fixed snap feed list item, removed (from)
  • loading snap with progress bar
  • shutter sound on and off option
  • corrected camera flash button
  • added BBM Integration
  • snap2chat camera tap to focus
  • now hides other elements when opening the timer picker
  • BBM Channels Button (thanks to Toby)
  • option to load snaps automatically (little buggy)
  • can now view snaps sent from your self
  • choosing recipients to send a snap now loads once only
  • disable auto refresh option
  • auto delete sent snap option
  • camera shutter sound on and off option
  • menu settings also on top when you swipe down
  • long press camera button to open video recorder
  • option to choose default camera or snap2chat camera
  • preview video snap before sending

Remember, this app is in public beta, there will be bugs and things not quite complete. If you come across any problems, hit up the forums and give your feedback there.

Follow @nemOry on twitter and you'll be among the first to know. ;)

In all seriousness, I'm sure he will submit it once he has ironed the kinks out. There are still some to sort out.

We're working on implementing the captions next, hopefully before Christmas if not then it'll be just after. You should then be seeing the app appear in BlackBerry World in Q1 2014 (January - April)

Not sure if this is something on my end or yours, but snaps that I receive have my user name on them rather than the sender's. The only way I know who they are from is if I can see the senders face in the snap. Z30 btw

This version solves that problem :)

I'm Toby by the way, as mentioned in the article ;). I'm helping Nemory out with the development of Snap2Chat and we are currently looking at implementing the native video editor so that you can edit your videos before you send them!

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated so leave your feedback and suggestions in the forum thread - thanks! :D

Yeah absolutely!!! We hope to bring the full functionality and even more than the full functionality of snapchat :)

I dont know for you but when I open the camera to take a snap there is always the flashlight that activates automatically ! It's so annoying!!!!

bring back the last app icon! I liked the plain and simple camera icon with the square than the rounded corners and the ghost doodle.

the other one was much cleaner and made the app your own instead of paying homage to the ghost from the official app.

hope to see more improvements! loving this app so far. :D

@Nemory, my suggestions involve the color palette you have in the settings. It would be really fun if it was fully customizable for both the "top bar" and also the "send and received" indicators...that way if I received a snap, it would be that same rectangle but it might be purple or green..if I sent a snap, the right arrow would be say green or pink. of course this is just a nitpicking suggestion haha great job mate.

In terms of performance you are almost there. There are still moments where I'm sending a snap or in the settings and the circle spins for a really long time and I have to restart the app.

Feature wise, you blow the real snapchat away lol

Random question..
...does ppl you send with this app, need this app... or can you send a snap to a snapchat user?
