What's the one problem with sexting? Is it the innumerable stories about private photos gone public? Perhaps the easy blackmail for your bitter ex? Wrong! It's the simple fact that it's so hard to send photos via regular old text message. Luckily, there's an app that can solve all your problems.

SnapChat has been around for a while, and it's apparently growing fast. The app is designed to make photo sharing easier and faster — and though the founders say it's a way to connect with friends and family, its most popular amongst very special friends, if you will. SnapChat lends itself to the sharing of more sensitive material because the recipient can only view the image for a short amount of time.
Over 50 million "snaps" (photos or videos) are shared each day, and as popularity grows, the app is making its way into the non-nude market. We've tried it and it definitely has its moments, but we're wondering: Are you ready to ditch your good, old-fashioned SMS for SnapChat? (SheFinds)
