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.
Bugs and glitches
Snapchat is a great app, well besides the many bugs and errors for example I had to delete and reinstall the app because it doesn’t show the correct number of views on my story nor the screen shots I’m hoping re-downloading it will fix it I even have the latest update. When I am watching the stories I am subscribed to the screen freezes and doesn’t allow me to do anything I have to force close the app. The screen goes black all the time and it’s very glitchy and laggy. Other than those few errors I will continue to use Snapchat to contact and update friends with my daily activities and it’s a great app to communicate with a lot of people and friends. Edit: I also believe you should add a live that would be HUGEEE! I love going live on Instagram and other apps but I use Snapchat more than any other app on my phone going live would be a huge step up and could change things. I also have a problem with my memories when I scroll far down because I’ve had it for so long it starts me all the way at the top again and doesn’t show me previous snaps from the years I’ve have Snapchat. It also shows me that when I post stuff on my story it gets posted in the wrong order like a long video gets split up and posted wrong it’s very annoying and would like this bug to be also fixed.
I’m sorry to say it, but something is definitely wrong with Snapchat. In all my years of using the app, I have never been this disappointed. Although Snapchat is my main social app on my phone, it has been really bugging me. For example, it has been taking up to 5 minutes to send a chat everytime I try to send something. Before I am told my phone is slow, let me reassure you this is not only a problem for me but for my peers as well. Also, I have been receiving Snapchat’s from WEEKS ago, leaving the other person to conclude I have been ignoring them. When it is taking 4 weeks for a singular snap to come through, there is an obvious problem with the app. Likewise, my peers and I have noticed that when somebody responds to me, it’s very slow and won’t load or I don’t get it at all. Just the other day I received a snap, and when I asked about it I learned it had said I left them on opened whereas for me it said I had been left on delivered. The amount of time I have wasted trying to solve this problem along with the taking 5 minutes to send one thing problem, I could have been doing other things, so I have been veering off the app. Unfortunately, I do not think this app will be worth it, especially if it keeps traveling downhill at this rate. Maybe, if we weren’t so worried about how the app looks we could worry about how it has been working. My peers and I have tried deleting the app, updating, but nothing seems to work.
