Snapchat gained its popularity for allowing users to send disappearing photos and videos that would removed after being viewed. There’s no way that you can save photos and videos from Snapchat, unless you take a screenshot which notifies the recipient, or use a third-party app.

Managing a third-party app just for the sake of saving snaps is not really convenient. Luckily, there is a way that you can save photos and videos right from the Snapchat app without depending on any third-party app or being jailbroken. You can use Snapchat++ which is a modified version of Snapchat that adds a bunch of new features and doesn’t require a jailbreak. Some of these features are:

  • Upload photos and videos from your Camera Roll
  • Save incoming snaps to your device’s Camera Roll
  • View a snap without marking it as seen
  • Remove the Discover and Live Stories section
  • View snaps without having to hold it
  • View Stories without your friends knowing it

In this tutorial, we will show you how to use Snapchat++ to save photos and videos from Snapchat to your iPhone’s camera roll.
