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.

Love it but have suggestions!

I’ve used Snapchat as my main communication app since it first came out! It’s a great way to stay connected with friends, post polls for my trivia gig, and it’s a relatively safe way to communicate with people met online (like online dating) who you don’t know well enough or aren’t comfortable enough to give your personal number out to.
Many great features have been added to Snapchat over the years that are perfect for even simple quality of life and it’s insanely user friendly. However, there are a couple of things that still need fixing or adding even after all these years! First fix is to add a setting to completely turn off the apps shutter sound when taking a picture that doesn’t involve me silencing my phone completely. The sound is incredibly loud and obnoxious and draws WAY too much attention so it’s really gotta go. Second fix is that if a video snap has multiple parts that record smoothly it shouldn’t arrive to you in multiple different notifications! I have several friends who I maintain conversations with using the longer video feature that was added quite a while back which is super fun and convenient but when I receive my friends replies the video will send a notification for each individual section as if they are separate videos/snaps. This is also incredibly obnoxious when I’m in public or at work and can’t turn my phone on silent for whatever reason.

It’s a nice app

I like Snapchat and it’s just comfortable for me to use if that makes sense since I always use it to talk to my only 2 friends on there lol. I like how it’s sort of creepy in a good way and how you can see when people screenshot, leave you on opened, or anything else that you would need to notice. Also the bitmojis in the corner to see if their online or not. Oh yea and it’s also safer than normal texting since it doesn’t give your actual phone number I think (although you can still share your location but I turned mine off) Also btw I just want to say that the cameos are a nice idea and all but a little creepy and it’s a little uncomfortable how it makes these videos with me and my friend that get a little out of hand (we’re just friends but I guess not according to cameo stories 💀) also one tiny thing that annoys me is if I go to send someone a picture and I want to scroll up in my camera roll it just thinks I'm scrolling out of the text and it closes it. I hope you understand what I’m talking about. But anyways it’s a great app! Now I’m going to go back to it and watch as my “best friend” keeps leaving me on opened no matter what j say! (insert sarcastic smiling) 😀 ok but fr good job 👍
