Snapchat is one of the most popular apps out there right now, sitting on third in the App Store's top Free apps. I was just getting used to the app on my Droid (Snapchat was released last month on Droids), and I got an HTC 8X which meant I could no longer have Snapchat. Being a college student (perhaps Snapchat's target market), I have a lot of friends who have the application. When I show off the phone, a lot of people love it, but all indicate that they dislike it's low selection of apps. When they ask me what apps it doesn't have, I tell them it does not have Instagram, but when I say it doesn't have Snapchat I get more of a shock (oh really?!?!) kind of reply, often followed by statements implying that they wouldn't like to switch phones if it meant leaving Snapchat.
I was just making a point on how Snapchat is such an up and coming app, one that will probably sit on the App Store as #1 in the near future. Like I said, I loved the app and I miss not having it anymore. It would be great if Snapchat came to WP8, and since they are becoming so popular, I at least hope that they are looking into the expansion of other OS's out there (cough, Windows Phone 8, cough). Anyways, my friends even joke and say that my badass 8X front-facing camera is worthless given that it can't be used for Snapchat.
Any others WP8 users that would also like Snapchat?

I have it on my old fashioned iPod 4th gen. (it feels like a PC from 2000 in my case compared to the Lumia 920) and it would be great to use the power of the WP camera... Even if they made a 3rd party app for it, I'd be completely okay with it. (day 5 of my WP and I'm in love)
By the way, for all you facebookers looking at this, go to this link here: https://www.facebook.com/snapchat?fref=ts and klick the drop down menu. Hit contact developers and send them a well worded message about it.
Like others have said, the more requests for the app itself, the better chance of the app coming to the WP platform.

Im so in for having snapchat as an app. All my friends either have an android or an iPhone.And its killing me, because there always talking about snapchating each other and having there inside jokes. Im so in to the idea of a petition but how do I email a developer?

firstname.lastname@example.org. Copy the email address, go to your preferred email client, compose a new email, paste the email address in the email box, make a subject, type your message in the message area, and then hit send.

I already have a petition on change.org for snapchat: Here's the link:
I started it last week and already have almost 50 people. If we let this infect these forums, that would be great, because there is a huge community here.

well I guess you could call it progress. I have been emailing snapchat from like 3 of my email accounts about once a week requesting an app, and finally got a response to one of the emails today!:

I've blasted out an email to them too, and signed the petition.

I have noticed that there is SnapChat available for iOS and Android. Problem is, I’m a Windows Phone user and would like to be able to try the app for myself. Especially as I believe quite a few of my iPhone/Android friends are already using this app, wouldn’t it be great if I could join in?

I wouldn't "consider" dating an ugly girl, but would give consideration to a hottie. hopefully they think along the same lines as my analogy!
