Bolt: Snapchat’s Competition The Scoop July 29, 2014 Gossip Instagram has soft-launched their newest app Bolt in New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa. Bolt will be competing directly with the ever popular Snapchat and Taptalk. Users can send photos or video clips to friends that will automatically disappear after it has been viewed. It will be interesting to see how the soft launch goes and how the rest of the world will receive another messaging app that has the trait of automatically deleting messages. Has the excitement or novelty worn off? Or is it still a sought after function? Bolt will be available in the Google Play Store and the App Store as well, although unless you reside in any of the 3 countries mentioned before the download link will not work.
