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.
Great app and all but FIX THIS
My Snapchat, along with many others, has suddenly started malfunctioning. I’ll send my streaks, and then it’ll say they sent, but then if I check later on, it says that only the streaks from the day before sent and makes it seem as though I haven’t sent or received anything, even though I know I have cause it said delivered before and it said I had 15 snaps, but then they all disappeared. And then when they all reappeared it wouldn’t let me open a few of them. It also deleted the videos off of my story from the day before. And it hasn’t been letting me view certain stories. Like I’ll try to few them, and it’ll just glitch me onto another story. This seems to only happen when it’s a video on the story. I tried restarting my phone, and I even tried logging out and back in on my Snapchat account, but after attempting this, it wouldn’t even let me back in the app. Like I would try to open it and it would just immediately crash. I talked to my friends and several of them are having the same issues as well. I even tried deleting the app and reinstalling it and now it’s taking forever to reinstall, like longer than usual. Idk what’s going on but PLEASE FIX IT SOON!
So many problems
Snapchat is a really popular app and for the most part it’s good but it’s also so frustrating. It always has so many bugs and the updates are the worst part. Right as u get used to a new update and get used to how to function in the app they make a new update. The updates are usually inconvenient and useless anyway, and the updates always mess it up. The newest update they put on keeps kicking me out of the app until finally I looked up ways to try to fix that. I tried multiple of the ways online told me to try and nothing was working so I resorted to the final suggestion. It told me to uninstall the app and to power off my phone, wait 30 seconds and power it back on, the reinstall the app. Well I uninstalled Snapchat, powered it off like they said and waited 30 seconds before powering it on again. I then went into App Store to reinstall the app but when I hit the reinstall button it would load for a couple seconds and then stop and now I cant seem to reinstall Snap. Yes, my wifi is on full bars and it really is just the app that is the problem. Most of the time while using the app it’s a really great app to use to talk to my friends but the updates are just useless and always come with problems. Most of the updates anyways are just cosmetics updates and not necessary ones, so I wish these kind of updates would just stop because now because of the most recent one, I cant even use the app.
