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.

    Its a great app but 95% of my friends dont have this app, that's the only down side to it. But if any of you guys/gals wanna windup me my username is Davi8

    It's a great substitute, but friends are hard to come by. I just really wish that Snapchat would stop being jerks and either give us an app or let us use third party apps.

    Great app and great concept. Cant really use this app to its fullest due to none of my friends owning windowsphone devices.
