    The Snapchat app has a feature called SnapMap and this time we are going to get to the bottom of the questions: "What it does?" and "How does it work?".

    To begin with, accessing SnapMap is possible from the main camera UI by pinching in with two fingers - quite tricky, huh? Then, you are going to be greeted with a map, where the live location of your friends is being displayed, and yours too. There are also being shown Snaps for popular buildings like museums, skyscrapers and such from other people as featured content.

    Tapping on the location button at the bottom right gets you back to your location and shows you the weather at the bottom left.

    Telegram X is one of our top best Android apps and that is why this time we are going to focus on one of it's not so well known features called live locations. Live locations allow a user to share his location constantly to a chosen contact, or multiple contacts at the same time.
