Snapchat phone free app - can my phone or tablet play and run Snapchat icon
The Snapchat app we are assessing in this performance review is free to download at the relevant Android & iOS App Stores and will run on the standard Android & iOS operating systems. Having achieved a huge amount of attention since its release, the people that have used Snapchat felt that it offered a good solution when looking for a suitable app. With an Android size of 5.2MB, and an iOS file size of 8.3MB, Snapchat requires a very small amount of storage space, so don't worry too much about it affecting your mobile device's remaining capacity. Other popular apps that might interest you include InstaLiker Instagram Like, Instagram, and Zello PTT Walkie-Talkie.

Snapchat Phone Requirements
Snapchat needs a phone that runs android or iOS but otherwise it only requires barely any processing power, any GPU within the last few years to tackle the minimal graphical requirements, and a very small amount of RAM. However it runs, the essential requirement is the 2.2 minimum Android version or the 5 minimum iOS version, which requires a fairly recent device.
The Samsung Galaxy SIII matches the Snapchat hardware specifications.
Android 2.2 / iOS 5

Experience a totally new way to share today. Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend (or maybe a few). They'll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen - unless they take a screenshot! If you want to share a Snap with all of your friends, add it to your Snapchat Story, a living narrative where each Snap lives for 24 hours until it disappears, making room for the new. The images might be a little grainy, and you may not look your best, but that's the point. It's about the moment, a connection between friends in the present, and not just a pretty picture. The allure of fleeting messages reminds us about the beauty of friendship - we don't need a reason to stay in touch. *** Please note: even though snaps are deleted from our servers after they are viewed, we cannot prevent the recipient(s) from capturing and saving the message by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device.
