Editors’ Choice

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.

Getting boring

No offense to the people who use this app a lot but it’s just not how it used to be. Don’t get me wrong I love snapchat, I use it all the time to call and text my friends, but they are getting rid of all the good features. On spotlights they got rid of the likes, you can’t pause the videos, etc. The most nostalgic part of snapchat was the mini games. I played that all the time with friends and many people would use them, including me. The thing I want back most is the games. I loved the agua park one, zombie apocalypse, etc. Snapchat, I really hope you see this review because it’s just not the same anymore. Everyone wants the likes back, it was never not about this video. Everyone is mad including me. Please bring back the games and the likes. I also hate the bitmojis. I feel like half of the snapchat users would agree with me. The old 2D bitmoji was the best and wasn’t ugly. Snapchat is basically just a money based platform and not as good as it used to be. Give us the old bitmojis back, including not having to pay for bitmoji clothes because no one is going to buy it anyway. Bring back the likes, bring back the games, bring back no AI, bring back no having to pay for clothes, put a pause on the spotlights, bring back the 2D bitmojis, etc. Just so you know, your not improving your platform, each update just gets worse and worse.

delete all the media and keep the messaging only

If they destroyed the entire “right side” of Snapchat with all the media or television like programs and actual nonsense and just kept the sane “left side” with the core messaging and fluidity of communication as is, it would be a great application and would have a maybe a 5 star rating. Since it literally looks like half of the app is that which I mention that is so absolutely unnecessary, it loses at least half of the rating. I’m saying, this is such a great simple messaging app aside from the all the “content” or “media” on the right side of the app, when you slide right from the camera. To the left of the camera we simply have a very fluid messaging system w a key emphasis on photo and video messaging, of course as that’s how this app originated, which is great. Please Snapchat, and I ask you as I ask God, get ride of all the non-sense at the right side of the camera completely. Remove all the media and lowly television programming or content and solely leave it as a good messaging application w photo and video capabilities as is, and we have a better application overall and a better world in turn… delete Snapchat media to the right of the camera keep messaging functions at left side of camera Continuous improvement needed. Thank you so much! Peace.
