Ratings and Reviews
From its humble origin as a fun way to send self-erasing photo messages, Snapchat has grown into one of our favorite social media apps. And not just for the hilarious face filters and cool geographical photo tags. It’s become one of the best ways to share memories, maintain friendships, and stay up to date on news and views from our go-to websites.
For the most part I quite enjoy Snapchat it’s probably the most used app I have on my phone because it’s really convenient for messaging people especially when my texting doesn’t work based on various locations, like text messages don’t go through when I’m at school buildings but Snapchat messages will. I think it’s quite useful and it’s very fun to use, however lately I’ve been experiencing some problems with loading times. For the past maybe two months it’s taking a good 10 seconds to load in a text that I got, and another three to save that text. I’ve been on various Wi-Fi connections as well as using my data and no matter the change between Wi-Fi or data the problem does not get fixed so I know that’s not the issue. Recently I found that deleting some of the things that take up storage on my phone help with the performance however this time that has not worked. I do think that this is some thing Snapchat needs to look into as a problem since it is one of the main communication apps. Have the time I to get annoyed with it taking so long to load that I just use text message instead of Snapchat but it’s just not the same and I wish I didn’t have to resort to it. I hope Snapchat fixes this problem soon.
Ad Glitch and Suggestions
So, I started back in March 2019, but got a new phone that December and made a new account. I went a few months without any problems, but then one day ads just stopped playing. Even in games when prompted for an ad, it would give me a pop-up instead. I was happy, I could watch stories and play games uninterrupted. But today they came back. At first I was excited because the glitch was resolved, but there are a lot of ads, a lot more than I remembered. I doubt the developers will even read this, but if they do, I have a few suggestions about the glitch and about other things. Starting with the glitch, I recommend an option to pay to have no ads, even when prompted, or no ads unless prompted, or simply post less ads. I do have a suggestion on filters. First, when you open up the filters, the first filters there should be your 5 most used favorites, so users don’t have to scroll through their filters to find them, and then the rest will be random and refresh daily. I take a photo with a filter once and it never goes away. Finally, I have a suggestion on the Spotlight page. There should be a way to “follow” people’s spotlight pages so you can keep track of what they post, and possibly even be notified of it. Second, there should be a comment section, it’s fun to interact with others in comments about the thing you’re watching.
That’s all, that’s my entire review. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
