If you want something longer than that, you’ll need to build a Snapchat Story, which is what the third button at the bottom left is for, but more on that later.
The second button is a download button so you can save your snaps to your smartphone, which doesn’t happen automatically.
Instead of left- or right-hand anchored menus, Snapchat has users swipe to access other elements of the service.
And finally, at the bottom right you’ll see an arrow.
Tap that when you’re ready to share your snap with your friends.
From dogs wearing glasses to carnival mirror-type contortions, there’s always something new to see.
And through some slick promotions, the app frequently cycles in new lenses to play with based on popular movies and shows.
However you tweak it, once you take a photo or video, the app shows your work, and new options pop into the frame.
