6snap has been deleted alongside other apps from the Windows Phone Store.

If you were to browse through the Windows Phone Store, you will notice that Snapchat apps are not very conspicuous among the displayed wares. 6snap which is a third party application, and that too a popular one, is just not to be found on the site any longer.

Developer, Rudy Huyn tweeted the fact that indeed the app has been yanked from the stage. He also wrote on Twitter that he would try and apply pressure on Snapchat with a little help from Microsoft.

While this is a quirky move by Microsoft, it must have some reason behind it. Otherwise why would it act in such a suicidal manner. The disappearing act has shocked and surprised the world. But it seems that the actual rationale behind the tough action was that the apps were a threat to the security of various cyber users.

This fact occurs at the same time as Windows users are getting irritated at the “hole in the soul” in the Windows Phone Store. Since Snapchat would have frozen the accounts of many of those on board, it was taken off cyberspace altogether. Things will have to start all over again as far as usability is concerned. 

Meanwhile, when queried as to the radical changes that have recently occurred in Snapchat’s displays, the owner explained that the app maker was working on a development kit. This was so that third party apps can be developed minus the migraines that they entailed.

The cyber-cleansing and techno-purge that has taken place will be something that will have historical significance. It will shake things up for a while at least. Obviously, it is all a connected whole and the slightest vacuum in the system spells scenarios of womb, doom and gloom.

Snapchat’s immunity issues were a bothersome deal and so it decided to get smart and act in a decisive manner. Thus all the apps including 6snap got annihilated from the arena. Now that no one can download the Snapchat cognizant apps, substitutes will have to be found and that too in a pronto manner and fashion.

One man upon whom many are relying with blind faith is Rudy Huyn. He wants to use the Microsoft platform to coerce the top execs at Snapchat to revive the older system. But it won’t be an easy job since the head honchos at Snapchat may just have other plans circulating in their noggins.
