Snapchat Update : Now You Can Save Snap and Add to the Story Later
Good news for all Snapchat users!
Snapchat, an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown has brought a new update! Introducing ‘Memories’, now you can save and sharing old snaps in a private archive mode inside the main app. Users can also add the snaps to the story later.
Open Memories and you’ll find your saved snaps in reverse-chronological order. Rectangular posts are individual snaps; circular posts represent stories, and offer live previews of the snaps they contain. Memories also contains tabs for viewing just snaps, just stories, or your phone’s complete camera roll. Memories also includes a section called ‘My Eyes Only’ where you can put embarrassing or explicit snaps. (if you’ve any!)
Apple to Replace 16GB to 32GB as Base Models for iPhones
Oh Yes! One of the top stories of this week! The basic iPhone storage option is all set to change, with Applereportedly looking at making the iPhone 7 32GB the standard model of the smartphone and doing away with the 16GB option altogether.
With a device having a camera capable of shooting videos at 4K resolution, the offered memory was rather less. This was probably company’s way of luring people into buying a more expensive model with the 64GB or more storage. But if you own an iPhone with just 16GB of storage, and you need some more space in your device, then Photospace app might work for you.
