Secret Pictures Tries to Recreate SnapChat Over BBM (With More Security)

Secret Pictures Secret Pictures2 Secret Pictures3

The popular sexting app SnapChat is still limited to iOS and Android which frustrates many BlackBerry owners. ShaoSoft is trying to do something about that with Secret Pictures for BBM. The app emulates much of SnapChat but since it runs over BBM the security is MUCH better. First of all the app disables screenshots though that does not stop someone from taking a picture of the screen… On top of that the images are encrypted in transfer. Both you and your friend have to have the app installed to use the feature but it does have a nice workflow allowing you to snap a picture, add a caption, and send from the app. The data is only sent through BBM instead of going through a different server.

The only downside is that the Secret Pictures app costs $1.99 which is going to severely limit its usefulness. Hopefully ShaoSoft releases a free ad supported version in the near future to defeat the classic chicken vs egg app conundrum.

  1. Almost afraid to ask what sexting is… is that why I never got into snapChat? Tried it for about 5 mins then never logged in again.
