Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Enjoy fast and fun mobile conversation! Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend. They’ll view it, laugh, and then the Snap disappears from the screen – unless they take a screenshot!
You can also add a Snap to your Story with one tap to share your day with all of your friends.
The best conversations happen when both friends are present, so we’ll let you know if your friend is Here in your Chat so that you can give each other your full attention. And if you're both Here, simply press and hold to share live video - and Chat face-to-face! Happy Snapping!
Please note: even though Snaps, Chats, and Stories are deleted from our servers after they expire, we cannot prevent recipient(s) from capturing and saving the message by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device.
What's New in Version 9.8.0
Bug fixes and improvements!
Ok so I'm not here to bash on the update or anything. I don't care about the best friend list or anything. I actually like the emoji "best friends list" given it adds mystery as to who you are to them and blah blah blah but I don't think everyone needs to know who I'm talking to given its just old school mates and coworkers that none of my friends know anyways.
Honestly I really enjoy the app. I don't see why the best friend list was an issue given for my friends and I it caused lots of issues.
I'm just here to say I can't view videos. Some on people's stories and I can't seem to watch ones sent directly to me. Please fix this as I have some very funny and clever friends and it's highly annoying when can't see there funny material, little goof offs, or even what they have to say to me that would probably make my day better at work given I work with the public and they all make me want to pull my hair out.
Another idea is Discover. I think it's a fun and great idea, just slightly annoying if just about every time I open the app and go to my friends stories it wants me to swipe over to discover every time. Normally there's not a whole lot going over there on that interests me. I know it's there when the purple dot in the upper right hand corner is solid and filled in purple and not "clear" or a purple ring... I don't need reminded of it just about every time I open the app.
Please and thank you.
Snapchat is now a guessing game
This app used to be everybody with a smartphone's favorite app, and in a way, is still is. Everybody's favorite feature of the app was the Best Friend feature. When snapchat decided to take it away, people felt like the world was ending. People used this feature as a way of entertainment and to cure curiosity. It helped people see who their friends were communicating with. Even tho snapchat has added a new way to (sorta) see best friends (emojis), it's not the same and no one is satisfied with the update. If you read other reviews and look at Twitter you will see people miss the best friends list feature and want it back. I speak amongst the million snapchat users, please bring back being able to see your friends Best friends again. The emoji update is not pleasing and is confusing and everyone would be much happier with the list of best friends feature back.
Good, but needs minor improvements
The only three things I feel need to be fixed are:
1. Fix the bug where I'll get a snapchat and it shows a red block (meaning I was sent a picture). Then I open it and it's a video with no audio. This also happens vice versa as well. I'll see a purple block (meaning a video), then I open it and it's just a picture.
2. Make it so we can individually clear names out of our feed, while still keeping the "clear all" option for those who prefer it. Sometimes people want to keep a good majority of the names but want to just weed out a couple of bad eggs. Then they're forced to clear everything and start over.
3. I've noticed another bug where I'll send a snapchat to someone, and their name disappears from my feed. They didn't delete their snapchat or block me and we're still snapchat friends, but the name disappears for some reason. Then I never know if someone opened, or even received my snapchat. And when I search their name in the feed, it just shows up grayed out and offers me an option to "Swipe right to chat."
Other than that it's a very quality app. Not a big fan of the new, messy best friends feature, but kudos to you for not being afraid of change. 😁
