In Short

Snapchat has a checkered history on Windows Phone with its fans on the platform enduring, then finding immense frustration. There has never been an official app for Snapchat on Windows Phone and that doesn't look to be changing any time soon despite the outcry from the community. Both Android and iOS have an official Snapchat app and a thriving user base, leaving Windows Mobiles users on the bench when it comes to snapping and chatting on the go.

Until recently, Snapchatters on Windows Phone had third-party solutions to choose from, such as the excellent 6Snap. But after Snapchat clamped down on unofficial clients hooking into their systems, all third-party apps were removed. And so the situation is now one of no apps and a lot of frustrated users. There are still no signs of anything in the works from Snapchat either, so for now it's just one long waiting game.
