App data for Snapchat This resource last updated

iPhone Backup Extractor supports Snapchat data access for consumers.

Snapchat data available for developers via ricloud API.

Snapchat is published by Snap Inc..

Snapchat's 150 million-and-climbing daily users, 350+ million daily “snaps”, and 10 billion daily video views combined will soon exacerbate the data problem most customer-facing businesses struggle with. Brands using Snapchat's story feature, geofilters or Snapcodes as an engagement tactic are provided with hard engagement metrics (open rate and completion rate), but are still missing out on customer insight opportunities hidden in Snapchat's app data streams.

The iPhone Backup Extractor provides ready access to limited Snapchat data for consumers, and the Reincubate Cloud Data API provides programmatic access to this data.

Following changes made by Snap in 2016, relatively little data is stored on iOS. However, the metadata that is still available provides value for forensics and more.

Working with Snapchat feeds

Snapchat's namespace is snapchat.picaboo.

The ricloud API makes Snapchat data available in an easy use JSON format. It is accessible using the snapchat_messages module name. Here's a sample of some of that data:
