They’re the apps that you see over and over on your friends’ phones – the ones every just has to have, and with good reason. Here are the 6 apps cool teens just can’t live without.

Snapchat

What’s better than the ability to send and receive selfies and funny video footage of you and your friends without it taking up any space on your phone, which, let’s be honest, is probably already running out of storage?

Nothing. Snapchat’s constantly updating filters are gold for teens that want to keep it casual and fun with their friends.
