Top 5 Apps To Save Snapchat Photos/Videos/Stories On iOS/Android

Snapchat is the most popular messaging app among teens and it isn’t so without any reason. It’s a magical app that makes messages vanish after viewing them. You can send a photo, video or text on Snapchat and the message expires after a short time or after the recipient has viewed it. So far, so good. Now, lets get to the ugly truth. You can actually save the photos, videos and stories shared on Snapchat. We have already written about the various methods through which you can save snapchat snaps permanently without the sender’s knowledge.

Best Apps To Save Snapchat Pics, Videos & Stories On iOS Or AndroidFor folks who don’t like complicated procedures there are various apps available both on iOS and Android that save the Snapchat pics, videos and stories. Listed below are the best apps to save/download the photos (snaps), videos and stories received on Snapchat.

Top 5 Best Apps To Save Snapchat Photos/Videos/Stories On iOS/Android

1. SnapBox: This is hands down the best iOS app to download Snapchat photos and videos. With SnapBox, all your Snapchat photos and videos are saved permanently forever. Whenever you receive a snap, open SnapBox and login with your Snapchat user id and password and all your snaps are saved.

Download: iOS

2. Snapchat Saver: Android is also a fairly important platform for Snapchat and a huge number of  people use Snapchat’s Android app too. Snapchat Saver is the most popular Android app to save your received messages on Snapchat. Snapchat Saver lets you save both photo and video snaps. You can save photo stories and video stories as well. Please note that snaps should be saved prior to opening them on Snapchat.

Download: Android

3. SnapCrack: The SnapCrack app boasts of some great functionality. Apart from saving photos, videos and stories you can also send snaps from your photo album. There is also a paid version of the app available for $4.99.

Download: iOS

4. SaveMySnaps: SaveMySnaps is an Android app that lets you view your snaps as well as optionally download them. Just remember not to view the snaps on the Snapchat app before downloading them.

Download: Android

5. SnapSave: This Android app completely replaces your Snapchat app. You can view and save snaps as well as send snaps from SnapSave. (Update: The SnapSave Android app has been removed from the Google Play Store, but, is still available on the Apple App Store for iOS.)

Download: Android | iOS

6. Casper: The Casper app comes from the creator of the SaveMySnaps app. The Casper app is an alternative Snapchat client that does much more than all other apps on this list. The functionality includes the ability to save snaps (photo, videos and stories), forward snaps, apply filters to photos, slide filters, add stickers to photos etc. The Casper app is available only on Android and information regarding the download can be found here.

    Just thought I’d let you know #2 and #5 have been removed from Google Play. My app ‘SaveMySnaps’ is still available and currently sits at #1 on the Google Play store.

    • Jason August 27, 2014, 07:23

      Your app isn’t very good. It take the picture then compresses it vertically. It should expand not compress.,

      • Liam Cottle August 27, 2014, 10:06

        This has been fixed as of the 6.0 BETA which I hope to have to public BETA in the next few weeks. I have added more features such as a swipeable gallery and INSTANT notifications when you receive a new snap.

        • ant September 30, 2014, 14:37

          Liam there is any possibility to also read the messages policy sent me using your app or I will need the normal snapchat apk for ever too? thanks

          • Liam Cottle October 2, 2014, 06:09

            Hey Ant,

            At this stage, you will still need the original Snapchat app to access ‘chat’ messages. However I am working on getting ‘chats’ into SaveMySnaps.

            It’s just not the easiest thing to do… Since they’ve made it so difficult to try and get into….

              Hey Liam,

              I am loving SaveMySnaps, for obvious reasons. But a recent Snapchat update prohibits users from using 3rd party apps to view snaps. If they decide to do so, their account will be locked. Any words on this?


            • Leonard February 24, 2016, 23:21

              Hey Liam is there an iOS version of Casper or can you make one ?

    • Niklas November 13, 2014, 02:52

      So? the app wont work if you already got it installed? Mine have been working perfect untill a few hours ago. Says “Already viewed in offical app” and the thing is that, i actually dont even have the original snapchat saved on my phone no longer. What can i do to fix this?

      Thanks. And hopefully i’ll get fast answers! :)

    • Grace H January 10, 2015, 06:14

        It’s a pity! Luckily, Android users can still download the apk from the site of Savemysnap. If you don’t feel safe about it, you can use some screen recording apps (from Google Play) instead. This article comes up with some and gives a detailed instruction. showmore.com/save-snapchat-videos.html

    • greg January 27, 2015, 06:24

      It’s not there anymore what happened to it?

    • Karen January 31, 2015, 05:44

      I can not find your app ‘SaveMySnaps’ in the google play store.

      • toni February 1, 2015, 02:57

        You have to type in (on google search) save my snaps apk google removed it from the playstore

    • ron February 26, 2015, 23:24

      Loved your app…but unfortunately had to get a new phone and realized it to has been removed from the play store :(

    • Steven November 18, 2016, 11:19

      Your app should reveal receiving/sent snap text and sent snap photos/videos

  • SnapKeep July 5, 2014, 00:55

    On snapkeep.tk you can save snaps and stories, directly in your computer !

  • cake September 12, 2014, 03:09

    You can also download the apk of those apps instead of using savemysnaps

  • crystalmarshall November 4, 2014, 01:16

  • Josh November 6, 2014, 12:19

    • Liam Cottle January 13, 2015, 15:34

      My app, SaveMySnaps still works. Snapchat may still lock your account if you use it… Since it’s been taken down, you can still download it here: http://liamcottle.com/savemysnaps/

      • naash February 11, 2015, 16:39

        Is there a way to get all the pics and clips that are saved on the save my snaps app without logging in using your snapchat account info?

      • Eoghan October 6, 2015, 15:38

        Since the new update it doesn’t get rid of all the scribbles and emojis from the snap, can you fix that?

  • Save Snapchats January 14, 2015, 16:12

    It’s interesting to see how snapchats are being saved.

  • Curtis January 26, 2015, 03:32

    Are there any snap save apps that work?? I’ve previously been using SnapSave but I received a notification that my account would be blocked if I continue to use it… Because I’m on my last life so to speak, I don’t want to risk it using another one! Anyone got any advice??

  • Nikhil January 28, 2015, 01:37

    Please tell me a way to save the snaps without my account getting locked in future?

    • craig April 3, 2016, 12:36

      use screen recorder by zd soft

  • Alternatives January 30, 2015, 16:20

    SnapMod works without root, whereas keepsnap (Xposed module) works on rooted phones.

  • Sorin February 13, 2015, 08:02

    So, I’ve been hearing rumours of people’s Snapchat accounts being permanently locked because they were using third-party apps. Will SaveMySnaps be one of those apps that gets my account locked?

  • mera February 13, 2015, 16:50

  • asdf June 10, 2015, 06:36

    Casper seems to work for me. Tested it between two accounts, and I don’t get notifications of saves unless I want them to. No idea if it bans me, as I just barely tried it today.

    • ch.humza September 4, 2015, 17:25

  • helen coates July 31, 2015, 16:27

    So in looking at the comments we have choices as parents. While I have no desire to “spy” on my sons they know what they say and receive could be detrimental to their health :-) so, we are all looking for the best solution so we all feel comfortable with them using snapchat and me being able to access what they are sending out and receiving. What would you suggest as the best / affordable app to do this? thank you.

    • Jodi September 13, 2016, 07:17

      I’m looking as well. Did you have any luck? 😩

  • Unknown August 24, 2015, 23:13

    Why iPhone has to be better then Android!!! Y’all folks need to create a SnapUp for android. Not just for iPhone only!!!

  • Unknown August 30, 2015, 00:07

    I restarted my android phone and your app doesn’t download as easy as it did the first time.

  • DudeGuy September 26, 2015, 03:44

  • Hank hill April 1, 2016, 22:52

    I think you guys forgot one, if your jailbroken on any iOS device, and have cydia, you can download a package called “Phantom” it basically removes all the limitations snapchat has, and you don’t have to download any other app/version of snapchat other than the official one from the appstore :)

  • Neoguy April 3, 2016, 12:45

    Hey nice article, but it needs to be updated as NONE of these work anymore after snapchat’s new update. I’ve posted an article which allows you to save screenshots without notifying, manually though. theticblog.com/2016/04/how-to-save-snapchats-without-them-knowing-2016.html

  • Natalia April 30, 2016, 06:36

    All these apps have been removed from the App Store

  • nate May 6, 2016, 03:05

    if all you want to do is save snap and stories i would use a screen recorder like this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rsupport.mvagent&hl=en

  • nate May 6, 2016, 03:06

    if you are rooted try a module from xposed called snaprefs

  • Connor Barr April 5, 2017, 17:29

    All are gone from App Store :(

  • Daniel May 2, 2017, 10:41

    We know that every Snapchat stories, videos, and photos are automatically removed within twenty-four hours. And once that period has been passed, you won’t be able to access them again.
    However, there is an easy trick to save any Snapchat story, video or photo within seconds. And to achieve that we are going to use Snapchat’s chat feature.

    1. Open your friend’s Snapchat story.
    2. While you are viewing the story, just swipe-up or tap on the “CHAT” text to open a chat window.
    3. Write something relevant about that story and tap “Send”. The message will be sent to your friend.
    4. Now, quickly head over to the Snapchat “Chat” section and tap on your friend’s name. That will open a chat window, and you should see the snap on which you just commented.
    5. Tap and hold on that snap. You will see, “SAVED” message. And all the saved messages will be highlighted with a grey background.
    6. NOTE: Once SAVED, you can tap and hold on any SAVED message to ‘UNSAVE’ it whenever you like to.

    That is it! You just saved your friend’s snap without even letting them know. You can now access these saved snaps in chats whenever you want.

    • Dee May 9, 2017, 10:21

      This is cool. But is it possible to save the picture or video FROM the chat TO your device so it can be shared on other apps? I know you can screenshot a picture but what about a video??

      • Brandon June 9, 2017, 14:11

        I would also like to know how to save a video that was sent in a chat from a friend to your camera roll. My uncle sent me a video of me and my mom when I was younger and he accidentally deleted it from his phone and thank God I saved it on the chat on Snapchat. But how can I get that video from the chat to my camera roll? And I’m a iPhone user.

  • Snapchat Saver July 1, 2017, 23:25

    Snapchat saver are now freely available in market

  • Vanessa August 13, 2017, 23:53

    I used Casper on Android and I loved it, now I’m looking for the most similar for IOS, which one is the best for that?

  • Shohag July 22, 2018, 13:36

    I love list to download pics from snapchat and its working. Is there an app that saves my edited snap videos before I send them? My snapchat only saves the nonedited version to my phone(LG G4).
