Finding Celebs On Snapchat Just Got A Million Times Easier
Finally an easy way to find famous people worth following.
Today is a pretty big day and it's all thanks to a genius new app that's going to make it approximately a million times easier to track down all your favourite celebs using Snapchat.
If you're a big fan of a celeb Snapchat story, you'll already be well aware that in order to actually follow someone, you need to know their username in advance. Unlike other social platforms, there's no real way within the app itself to search a celeb's name and ensure you've found their genuine account, so you have to rely on word of mouth to actually know exactly who has one in the first place.
While it's easy to find people like Selena Gomez, who goes by 'selenagomez', it's people like Nick Jonas, who uses 'jicknonas', and Kylie Jenner, aka 'kylizzlemynizzl', who are less easy to hunt down when you're on an adding spree.
Enter Peek, a brand new app that's about to make all your celeb watching dreams come true by showcasing influential accounts in one handy place, so you can see exactly who is who before you properly add them over on Snapchat. It also categorises accounts by interest, meaning you can browse celebs, TV shows and brands separately, depending on what you fancy.
The only slight downside to this is that while you can follow celebs over on Peek once you've found them, this doesn't actually transfer straight over to your Snapchat, so you'll still have to login and add them manually.
"If you follow someone on Peek, you just follow them on Peek, it does not transfer over to Snapchat," app founder Jacob Catalano, told MTV News. "However, if you'd like to add them on Snapchat, we make it very easy for users to copy the celeb's Snapchat username and paste it in Snapchat and add them."
Either way, you can find it over on the appstore now, so go check it out if you fancy.
