photo messaging application

a.k.a. photo message app

Similar to texting, a photo messaging app allows users to take photos, record videos, add text and images, and send them to a list of recipients.

The most well-known app is Snapchat where users can set a time limit for how long recipients can view their "snaps" (the range is usually from 1 to 10 seconds) after which the content is deleted from the recipient's device (but still kept on Snapchat's servers). Snapchat is a photo messaging app developed by Evan Spiegel and Robert Murphy.
