Since the latest update, every time I click on notifications or go to open the app I get a black screen. I have to close it and reopen it multiple times on most occasions in order for it to work properly. Additionally, I dislike that various companies, particularly clothing brands, and influencers were added and are being advertized for. I think it takes away from the original concept for the app. Aside from those issues I love the platform, it's a fun way to see what your friends are up to.

I love the concept of this app, and it used to work great. But lately it has been sooo buggy. I no longer get notifications that it's time to take a photo, I have to retake photos several times before it accepts it, and it keeps crashing when I try to open it to take a photo. Those three really annoying issues mean that I rarely take a photo "on time." Plus, because their concept of time zones stretches from sea to shining sea, the time to take photos is often at really inconvenient times.

I love the concept and I do use the app. However, this is the buggiest app I use. The photos take forever to load and often fail for this reason. Due to the nature of the app, this can mean you aren't "on time" from no fault of your own. Comments are only visible to me if I close the app and reopen or they disappear altogether. The app crashes anytime I click on a notification. Lately, my notifications don't even appear in time for the 2 min window. So, much work to be done.
