To get started, you have to log-in with SnapRoll using your Snapchat credentials. The app automatically integrates with the camera roll after setup. So when you open the SnapRoll home screen, you will be able to select any photo or video from the camera roll and send it to your Snapchat contacts.

Additionally, SnapRoll allows you to save all photos and videos that you have received from your contacts. Simply tap the save button displayed on screen to keep copies of snapped photos on your device.
