Snapchat, everybody's favorite sexting app, has just grown up. Now, to complement its simple self-destructing messages, the iOS and Android apps both handle instant messaging and live video chats.

Here we go again, talking about apps for horny people way more than usual. But that's because there's a new king: Snapchat. It sounds like something designed for children. But really, it's really designed for penises. And if you use Snapchat wisely, you can be the emperor of the dick pic.
