Picit for Windows Phone
At this moment the best alternative for Snapchat on Windows Phone is Picit. This app is similar to Snapchat. Picit allows you to share pictures with other Picit users. The picture will vanish after a specific time interval which you can set between 1 and 15 seconds.
The biggest disadvantage is that Picit has no connection to Snapchat in any way. So it is not possible to connect with Snapchat users and send or receive snaps from them.
