SnapChat is one of the most popular social networking platforms for sharing temporary messages and media with your friends and family. But sometimes, you may wish to retain some of the snaps and save them to your iOS device. A few SnapChat tweaks make it possible to save Snap stories and remove some of the limitations imposed in the official app.
Phantom is more of an extension of the original SnapChat app, and requires the original SnapChat app to be installed on your iOS device. With Phantom, you can achieve some of the most wanted features of SnapChat:
- Keep Snaps in your feed and mark them as read whenever you want.
- Disable hold gesture.
- Save all your sent media in Snap log.
- Select several recipients at once
- Save received photos to Camera Roll, specific photo album or password-protected folder.
- Send media from Camera Roll
- New Caption Effects
- Advanced Notification settings, and much more.
- Easily enable or disable Phantom
This is a tweaked version of the original SnapChat app with special features including the ability to save SnapChat Stories, permanently keep Snaps and chats, upload media from gallery, watch Stories privately (Incognito mode), disable discovery, spoof location, apply custom filters, 50-second video recording (instead of 10-second limitation), save media to custom album in Camera Roll, and many other features.
If you’re a regular SnapChat user, you’ll certainly find these tweaks from both the apps useful.
Install SnapChat Phantom and SCOthman Snap without computer [No jailbreak]
Neither SnapChat Phantom, nor SCOthman Snap is available on the App Store, so ideally you would need to jailbreak your iOS device to install apps from external sources, such as Cydia. But thanks to Build Store, you don’t have to jailbreak your device just to install an app that is not on the App Store.
Build Store is a third party app store, which contains apps that are either unavailable, or have been removed from the App Store. And with a $9.99 / year per device subscription, you can install these apps on your registered iOS device, without having to jailbreak it. Both SnapChat Phantom and SCOthman Snap are available on the Build Store, and so, you can install it from here directly on your non-jailbroken iOS device, without using a computer.
Installing SnapChat Phantom and SCOthman Snap from Build Store doesn’t require any computer (PC/Mac). You can install it directly on your iPhone or iPad, similar to downloading apps from the App Store. The following steps will guide you to install SnapChat Phantom and SCOthman Snap on your iOS device:
- Sign up for a new BuildStore account and register your iOS device.
- On your registered iOS device, open Safari and navigate to the SnapChat Phantom or SCOthman Snap app page.
- Tap on the Install button.
The selected app will be installed on your registered iOS device.
Note: SnapChat Phantom requires the original SnapChat or any of its tweaks to be installed on the device.
Are SnapChat Phantom and SCOthman Snap safe to install?
Build Store’s content policy states that any application available on their third party app store “MUST NOT harm the device or device owner”. According to Build Store, the apps available on Build Store are reviewed internally for malicious code and stability. We have spoken to a company representative on the matter, and this is what he had to say: “We guarantee that using the apps from the BuildStore is safe for the gadget and users’ private data.”
However, Build Store does not claim any responsibility for any action taken against the user by original app developers (for example, disabling of account), for the use of tweaked apps.
