(Post Updated, check it out at the end of the post) Several months ago, Snaptu was an all-in-one mobile application, which had integrated many social networks and amenities including Facebook, Twitter, Circinfo, Picasa, MyMovies, News and Blogs, Football Scores, AccuWeather, Dictionary, Sudoku, Google Calender and many more, all within the same application. But earlier this year, Snaptu app was acquired by Facebook and became the official Facebook app for every phone.
Since then, the official Snaptu website stopped distributing the older version of the app. The new Snaptu application now only has Facebook integration, which means you can’t access other networks such as Twitter and Cricinfo within the app. Those who have older version of Snaptu installed in their phone can still continue to access all social networks and amenities, but once you delete the app you can no longer re-download the app from the official website.
Most of my twitter friends were used to Snaptu and I, too, have been using Snaptu for a long time. But those who have deleted the app for any reason are not able to re-download the app. All friends have been asking me for an alternative or earlier version of Snaptu since it’s been acquired by Facebook. I did a lot of searching and finally found out that there are still some sources where you can get the download link of previous version of Snaptu and that’s why I’ve come up with this post for those of you who are now tired of shitty apps and looking for a way to run Snaptu on phone as before.
How to Get Snaptu application (Older Version)
To get the previous version of Snaptu (all-in-one) application, head over to Opera Mobile Store. Now, navigate to the mobile phone that you own and do a search for ‘Snaptu’ in the search box. If Snaptu is still available for your phone, it will show up in the search results along with the download link. You can get it by clicking on the ‘Download’ button. If you’re really fond of using Snaptu app, you must download the previous version of Snaptu right this second, as I don’t know how long the downloads will be there for.
Brothersoft and Softonic are other two websites where you can get the earlier version of Snaptu for Java/J2ME enabled phones. If you prefer the older version, you can download the working versions from any of the following links:
I recommend you to save a copy of the older version in your computer, so that if you delete the app by mistake, you can re-install it anytime. Now what are you waiting for? Just download and install the app on your phone and start using your favourite application.
