WindUp app, as first reported by Neowin, works as an ephemeral messaging app to provide similar features of Snapchat. Microsoft says that the app is designed for the users to “create and share fun, temporary messages and media with friends”.
The app is being called WindUp as there is an option to set a low limit to “wind up” friends to see the message. An option to set the limit high is also available to make a message last longer.
As Snapchat for Windows Phone is not yet available, WindUp seems to be one of the best alternatives for its fans on Microsoft’s mobile platform. Using WindUp, users can easily share pictures, videos and audio snippets alongside text messages with their friends on Windows Phone platform.
WindUp app is available for free download on Windows Phone Store and requires Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
