Snapchat Disables 3rd Party Apps in Effort to Improve Security

Snapchat is working to create a "culture of security" which includes users only accessing the service through the official Snapchat app. No third party apps allowed.

Third party apps have been having a hard time lately as more networks close down adjacent services, or lock out competitors. Twitter revoked API access for Meerkat, likely because it wanted to preference its own streaming service; Periscope. Now Snapchat has started to revoke access for third party services, primarily to contain the content on its network.
