Snapchat was the answer for people who wanted to fool around in all sorts of ways on social media without having their antics recorded for posterity. The app allows messages and photos to instantly disappear and fade into eternal obscurity. This was good news for people who wanted to experiment with nude shots, racy chats, and give over all kinds of top secret, gossip, lewd and juicy information with the guarantee that they would never suffer from the publicity.
Well, Mark Cuban has shown us that this is just too good to be true (we thought so). While it is possible to take a shot of a Snapchat, the other user is warned. However, the Dallas Mavericks owner shows us how easy it is to record someone’s Snapchat without their knowing about it, courtesy of Business Insider. Of course, this means that Cuban is developing a competing App called Cloud Dust that makes it absolutely impossible for someone to keep a record of your nude photos (at least until the next Cuban comes along and figures out how to mess with it), but it isn’t out yet, so until then, this is what you do.

The snapchats are sent to an iPhone Mac running OS X Yosemite. All you do is plug your iPhone into your Mac, Open QuickTime, then File, then NewMovie Recording. Next to the recording icon, open the drop down menu and choose your iPhone. The iPhone will be mirrored on the computer. Hit record and open Snapchat, and anything on your screen will be recorded. Your friends will never know.
Uh-oh. Is this the end of Snapchat?
