Ratings and Reviews
From its humble origin as a fun way to send self-erasing photo messages, Snapchat has grown into one of our favourite 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.
i’m giving this app 2 stars as it was my FAVOURITE social media platform before the update - back then, I would’ve rated it 5 stars! however, me and many others dislike the new layout update as it is incredibly confusing and, well, useless. when i swipe right i want to see everyone’s stories laid out in chronological order, not a discover page full of random articles thrown in with celebs. with the chronological stories it was so much easier and quicker to find what you were looking for, but now, everything is crammed onto the home page! i’m missing out on so many peoples stories, and have noticed that my story is getting AT LEAST 40 less views than usual!! i typically get around 120 views as i’m quite new to the app, but whenever i check now i’m stuck on 70 views! today it was even a pathetic total of 52!!! i can’t tell who messaged me when as random peoples stories are mixed up with all my recent texts, which just makes it even more confusing. i missed an old friends birthday this morning as - of course - she was not in my recent messages meaning i couldn’t see her story and wish her a happy birthday. i only found out it was her birthday because of people in my recent messages wishing her a happy birthday on their stories! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK SNAPCHAT!!!
Giving this app a one star is generous in its current situation. I'm only giving it that because I can't give any lower. I've been a user of snapchat for over 5 years now and I use it everyday. Being in uni it's hard to keep contact with friends and family from home but since you've added group chats we speak on there everyday. However, after this update which I tried to avoid the best I could after hearing all the negative feedback, it updated itself. Since this, I've used the app once a day just to keep my streaks. (Yes, I'm sad but I have over a 700 day streak) I have not looked at any story since. However, I did put a sorry up before I had the update and usually I'd have over 250 views but I had just over half that so just shows how many people are viewing stories. I do not want to see everyone's Bitmoji or story next to their names on the homepage where we see all our recent messages. I just want to see the icon to know whether I've got a message or not. Where the story page used to be is full of stories I don't want to see and the discover page which I have never used anyway. You've complicated an extremely popular and successful app which was very simple to use and everyone knew where everything was. It wouldn't surprise me if most of you're users stopped using this app as me, a loyal user who has been using this app for over 5 years is only not deleting this app for the reason of not wanting to lose streaks. Do us all a favour and just change it back!!
