Create and share fun, temporary messages and media with friends using WindUp. Decide how long a message will last - set it to expire after a time or view limit of your choice. Set a low limit to "wind up" your friends as they race to see what you've posted, or set the limit high to make your message last longer.  WindUp lets you share pictures, videos and audio snippets, as well as text.

    WHY NOT SNAPCHAT! Please this is my request to Microsoft to provide us snap chat or any app compatible to it PLEASE. I regret taking windows phone just because of it!

    Just get over the snap chat dispute it's so petty.

    STILL NOT SNAPCHAT. Good app with cool functions but what's the point if I don't have anyone to send anything to??? This rating is based purely on the app itself. If I rated base on it's true social function, zero stars. No point if you don't actually have friends who use it. Extend to SnapChat platform and users will be happy!!!

    The app itself is very nice, but could it not save taken photos? Kind of a hassle to have to delete them from my phone afterwards.

    No. Just make a deal with Snapchat. Stop limiting us to just your company and monopolizing the people who use your products.
