    Snapchat never ceases to amaze us with its odd additives at every update. From throwing up rainbows to swapping faces with your friends to sending money with the swipe of a finger, you can now do it all from that one bizarre yellow ghost app.

    No matter how odd the Snapchat additives become, the best feature remains the ability to witness the world from the non-photoshopped viewpoint of the eyes of everyday people. It’s now easier than ever to see the world from the palm of your hand and travelers from all continents have jumped at the opportunity to share their experiences with the world.
