I use snapchat on a daily basis. However something tells me that if it weren't for their streaks, many users would fade from this app because, quite frankly, it's going downhill fast. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the idea and uniqueness behind this app. It's brilliant and unlike other forms of social media. But lately its cons have been heavily outweighing it's pros.
1- SNAPCHAT OPENS MY SNAPS (OR SAYS THAT I OPENED THEM) IF I LEAVE THEM UNOPENED FOR MORE THAN A FEW HOURS. seriously? not sure if this is a glitch or supposed to happen but maybe I wanted to see those snaps? what if there was something important?
2- THE NEWS IS INCREDIBLY BIASED. not all snapchatters share the same views, so featuring such biased news is very offsetting and even offensive to some users. Every last news source featured leans so far to the left that it's very tempting to get rid of snapchat. There are many young snapchat users and they most certainly should have access to news that portrays all sides of the stories rather than only showing them articles that support what some snapchat executive believes. aka 1) get rid of news or 2) get more sources that don't all publish such biased views or 3) make a block feature
3- APP CRASHES FREQUENTLY!!!!!!
4- THE CAMERA BUTTON ONLY WORKS ABOUT 80% OF THE TIME
I am dissatisfied
Please note I attempted to send a review to the creators of SnapChat several months ago. It seems they did not take my opinion into consideration whatsoever as nothing has changed. Clearly, after reading a few other reviews I am not the only one who feels this way so I'll say it again. Why? Why is this would-be brilliant and unique form of social media and communication becoming nothing more than a sell-out for biased and unreliable "news" feeds? The majority of the "news" that appears is completely biased and very much leans to the left. If there is to be a news feed on a social media site, let it be, at the very least moderate. I am fed up with the ridiculous levels of unwanted "news" and "stories." They are not needed. Please find an alternative to them, or as I said I would several months again, I will delete my account and encourage others to do the same. Please, SnapChat developers! Take away the biased and unwanted "news" stations on what was once a nice, fun way of communication that was (quite wonderfully) devoid of political scandals that ought not to be propagated online. Thank you for your consideration, and please heed this this time, I beg of you. I do not wish to remove my account, but I shall if this issue is not addressed.
I give this 2 stars because it is a good app. I use it everyday for quite a while. But I'm in a few group chats, one of them is pretty active. (If you don't open any snaps for it for a day you would probably get 1000+ seconds of em). Anyways, with group chats sometimes it will say there are in-chat messages which aren't there. It will replay snaps from a few days ago and only play them over and over. Everybody has to leave and rejoin the chat in order to fix issues. Then on top of that the app drains my battery very fast. A 10minute session would probably drain at least 10%. The app is slow. The news section doesn't make much sense as the "news" in there is very biased.(mainly towards feminist and minority's). Like one "news" thing was "3 things only us black woman know". And then there is a bunch of stuff on "man spreading". I think that they should add an option to turn off the news and they should add a clear chat history thing to group chats. (If that's not a thing already. I don't explore options much) I'm not sure how much they can do about how fast the app runs. I probably just need a better phone.
