Scanchat became quite popular mobile app a few years ago. Unfortunately, as of today, it is only available on iTunes for iPhone and iPad users for five dollars. Don’t worry I got you all covered I have found the app for both Android and iOs users for free. So you can save 4.99$ and buying something nice for your self on the wish app, which is also free. If you go here and read this article, you will learn how to save up to 70% on your order.
If you were searching for Snapchat and you have made a typo. Here is a download link for iOs and here is a download link for Android users. Don’t worry, both of these are to official sites. The best part is that this app is completely for free, unlike this app. But if you read this article, I will show you a way how to install it completely free of charge.
How to install scanchat on your android phone
The first step to install it on your android device is to open the phone and go to settings. I don’t know which version of android you are running, but it should open generally in the networks tab. You need to go to general settings. Once you are in general settings, scroll down the screen until you will see privacy settings. Then you have to choose Fingerprints & security. Once you open that scroll down again until phone administration. There should be an option called unknown sources. If you allow that one, you will allow installation of the app from sources other than google play store.
If you don’t feel secure about that, you can download antivirus to your phone before setting this up and then enable this option, install the scanchat and then do the same process but this time disable you will disable the option “unknown sources”.
Step by step screenshot tutorial for you
Depending on your current android version it could look slightly different, but the names of the settings should be the same and in the same categories.
Installation tutorial for iOS users
If you are an owner of an iPhone or iPad you should know your way around the settings, which I, unfortunately, don’t because I am an android user my whole life. Look at the android tutorial and quite similar settings should be also on your iOs. Once my friend borrows me his iPhone Xs I will update this article with step by step screenshots how to install it.
Where to download scanchat apk
After three paragraphs, is posted a youtube video. From which I was able to download the scanchat application and so can you. This video is quite new and I really glad that I have found it. If you are an iPhone user you won’t understand, because you are still able to get the app for $4.99. But Android users aren’t. Yes if you google this app it will show you several results for google play store, but if you click on them, it will redirect you to a blank page, that this app is not available anymore.
About the app on iTunes
The app that is available on iTunes is marked as released on August 8, 2018. Which is true in a way, because this was the first version 1.0. Before this realese, there was a beta version, which was used for almost a few years. A week later after the launch, they have released version 1.1, where they fixed photo distortion which has occurred in landscape mode. On August 26th of 2018, they have released 1.2 where they have fixed few bugs which were happening when users were publishing to a public folder. And the last update was released 9 days ago ( on February 13th of 2019 – version 1.3), where they have changed a code a lot, but the app is running a lot smoother.
Unfortunately they seller of this app, Daca institute LLC is not really promoting this application, which is a shame. In this last version for iOs when it is fully installed it takes 47.1 Mb of your memory. The app also requires you to have at least iOS 8.0 or better and it is, of course, compatible with iPhones, Ipads and newly with iPod touch. The main language of the app is English, but you can switch to Simplified Chinese.
Anyway, the two apps that show up on google play when you search for this app were not original. First of all, they were called scan chat and both of them had just a few installs before google play store disabled them. One had 4-star rating and the second 3.5 rating but just from a few users in total. So those apps being disabled is not such a bad thing. Because from the reviews I have found online they were nowhere near the quality of the original scanchat.
