Snapchat

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Snapchat is the fastest way to share a moment with friends.  The company created a mobile application that allows users to share photos with friends (either one to one or one to many) that quickly expire over a pre-determined amount of time.  The photos expire in between 1 to 10 seconds. Photos can also be annotated with typed text or drawings.  Snapchatters have shared over fifteen billion unique images through the service since January 2012, making Snapchat one of the Top 10 apps in the iTunes AppStore.
