Snapchat iPhone 6

Snapchat no longer requires you to tap and hold to view a Snap or Story, the company announced in a blog post Wednesday. According to developers, a new version of Snapchat, which is rolling out now on the App Store, lets you view Snaps and Stories with a single tap.

The new tap-and-view experience means your thumb will be no longer tiring while sorting through a bunch of Snaps or watching a several-hundred-second Story.

In addition to this change, the new version of Snapchat brings out the ability to add friends nearby using the new Add Nearby option. “If everyone opens Add Nearby, a list of your friends will appear on the screen,” says the company. “Just tap to add.”

You can now optionally add a selfie to the center of your Snapcode.

This makes it easier for others to recognize you when you add them on Snapchat. Snapcodes screenshotted from other apps can be easily added through Add Friends.

Lastly, Snapchat has recently rolled out two-factor authentication to improve your security by requiring one-time codes in addition to your user name and password.

Though an optional feature, you’re advised to immediately enable Snapchat’s two-factor authentication by going to in-app settings and choosing Login Verification. The app will send you a unique verification code via SMS to the verified phone number linked to your account.

Once Login Verification is enabled, you will have the option to verify additional devices and request a Recovery Code should you lose your phone or change your mobile number.

Snapchat 9.11 changelog:

  • Tap To View: now it only takes one tap to view a Snap or Story.
  • Improved Snapcodes
    • Tap your Snapcode to add a selfie
    • Add by Snapcode: screenshot a friend’s Snapcode, then go to Add Friends to add them
    • Share your Snapcode: export your Snapcode directly from the app

The 53.7-megabyte app requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 7.0 or later. The app is optimized for the iPhone 5/5s/5c, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screen sizes and currently lacks a WatchKit component.

Grab Snapchat at no charge in the App Store.

    Lol that’s why you get phantom I’ve had this for years, good to see it finally being added to snapchat though.

    I am not much of a snapchat user as most people are. I only use to snapchat with my lady and thats it. But I always thought that having to hold to view a snap was tedious and annoying at times lol #TapASnap FTW

    Huh even SnapChat started to copy jailbreak Tweaks like Phamtom for Snapchat.

  • PoderosoCastig4

    Ever since I updated my Snapchat app, it imediately crashes when I type in my login info, even if it’s invalid (user ‘asd’ / pass ‘123’). Does it have something to do with the jailbreak? I’m currently running iOS 8.3 and it happens regardless of Phantom being installed or not. I have tried reinstalling the app but nothing seems to fix it. I basically lost my Snapchat, and I’m really frustrated about it. Did any of you run into this kind of problem? I’m thinking of upgrading to iOS 8.4 to see if it will work.

      i run on ios 8.4 and the problem is still there, since 9.10 en now 9.11 it keeps crashend when i press login, what in die was install 9.9.0 with that version it doesn’t crash. But Thats not the best sulotion, any one knows how to fix it?

      • PoderosoCastig4

        Sorry to bother you… Where can I at least download Snapchat 9.9.0? I looked for it everywhere online and found nothing but scams.

    Why would you need a WatchKit app for it? The watch doesn’t even have a camera, nor would it make sense to try to view your snaps on the tiny screen, especially if you’re getting nudes all of the time. Gotta see those details on a bigger screen!
