Are you hooked up on Snapchat? You're not alone, as its user base spans into the tens of millions. Snapchat is so hot and trendy right now, that its founders rejected some mind-numbing piles of cash
for reasons that are better left for the ages to unravel.
So what's so very special about Snapchat? At its core, it simply allows you to send images and videos to other Snapchatters out there, but there's a catch. Namely, each of those can only be viewed once, and for no longer than 10 seconds only. The 'chat' part in the name of the app, then, is a bit of a misnomer, as there's no actual typing going on, unless you count snap captions. As you can probably guess, this got a whole bunch of people really addicted, as, at least in the beginning, it allowed people to share what was sometimes awfully personal stuff. It wasn't long until people started looking out for ways to save these ephemeral bits of information, and there are indeed some ways to do it fairly easily. Apps, like SnapCapture, offer just that, yet they all suffer a major drawback, as they require access to your SnapChat account, and you need to always resist the urge of checking out your latest snap, as the third-party app would have to be loaded first. Moreover, all third-party apps like SnapCapture will automatically log you out from the actual Snapchat app, which is quite annoying. Alternatively, you could try to take a screenshot whilst you're looking at the snapchat, but that's both clunky as hell, and also notifies the sender of what you just did.
Well, luckily for all of you (whatever your motivations are), there is a better, less-clunky way, that will also work for video snaps. Unlike SnapCapture or SnapHack, it won't log you out of your account every time you save something, and it works seamlessly with no need to do anything whatsoever. All you need is a rooted device.

How to save snapchats the easy and proper way
1. Step #1
Once again, for this to work, you need to be ROOTED. There are millions of guides for each specific device out there, so we're assuming that you're rooted, or willing to.
Anyway, for the purposes of this guide, we'll be needing the wonderful Xposed Framework, which allows you to install any mods without having to go through the hassle that custom ROMs can sometimes be. You can download it from here
. Be sure to direct all credits to the creator of this almighty piece of code, rovo89
. Anyway, we recommend you download the .apk directly from your device, but you can still copy it from your computer to your phone. Just make sure you can navigate to it via a file explorer.
Once downloaded, install the app. If you don't have 'Unknown Sources' checked on your Android device, the installer will prompt you to enable it. Do so, and then revert the change, just to be on the safe side in the future.
2. Step #2
Once the Xposed Framework has been installed, just fire it up. You now need activate it. Click Framework and then Install/Update, as shown in the image on your left. A SuperSU (or whatever you have in its place) prompt will appear, asking you to grant permission to Xposed Framework. Go ahead.
3. Step #3
After a short install, you'll get a confirmation box saying it's done, and you need to reboot. Go ahead and reboot your device, we're almost done.
4. Step #4
5. Step #5
We're pretty much done now, just one more step. Go back into the Xposed Frame work and navigate to Modules. Then check the KeepChat [3.1.5] module. You will once again need to reboot, and you're done.
6. Collect results
KeepChat should work normally out of the box. Just go ahead and use SnapChat as you normally would. The module you just installed will simply save every image and video you take a look at. Pretty nifty, no?
