    Both seem useless, just use imessage or google talk

    I don't use Facebook. But if I were to judge these apps I'd judge them based on their icons.

    Pointless apps, since we can call, text and MMS.

    Everyone in my area snap chats, its fun but annoying to keep taking pics every two seconds, and its a battery drain trust me.

    I think it was kind of lame of Facebook to copy Snapchat the way that they did. Judging by Poke's reviews, Facebook isn't going to gain any positive popularity with Poke. And to be honest, surely they could've though of a different name. I thought this was an app to poke your Facebook friends at first.

    I use Snapchat, I agree it is fairly pointless. However it is very entertaining and most of my friends use it (college kids). And because it is entertaining and free it is worth it. People act like themselves instead of trying to take perfect photos because they know the photos will be gone in a matter of seconds.
