Just got the new update and it shows all my friends' stories and other featured stories all in the same discover tab as opposed to having two seperate tabs. Instead, I get to see my friends' stories in the left tab but only my friends that I regularly snap are easily accessible. Whoever thought this was a good idea actually needs to be fired. I don't know what you people are doing but ever hear the term "Don't fix what's not broken"? Yeah, make that the company motto. Who even designed this? Christ.
I've always loved this app and it was super easy and fun to use but now...it sucks. The layout is so horrible, I do NOT want to see other people's stories who I've haven't added, the last update was perfectly fine. And like a few people said in the reviews - don't fix something that isn't broke. I understand wanting to try out new things but sheesh, you guys could have at least done it better.
I'm fine with the new layout, but I (and probably a lot of other people) honestly don't give a flip about random "popular" stories. I don't know who any those people are and now I have to scroll through heaps of stories I don't even want to see just to get to the stuff I actually subscribed to. And it doesn't matter if I tap "see less like this" because then my feed just fills up with MORE stories. I would recommend having a separate discover space for articles and popular stories. Like swipe once for popular stories and swipe twice for Buzzfeed, Mash, etc.
Everything was good until the new update. The new update focuses on the areas of Snapchat that not that many users use/care about. Do I want to see people who updated their story recently versus people I want to respond to? No. Do I want to have an entire page dedicated to popular stories and gossip articles? No. Do I want to see people's bitmojis when selecting to talk to them? No. And do I want to see the name of whoever sent the message on the photo/video I'm watching? Yes, but of course they removed that. Not pleased.
What I'd love is if they cut the rubbish on SC, however I understand some people like it, so how about a SC lite like messenger had that has the bare essentials so that the app can run smoothly without crashing on older/slower phones. Just an idea I think would be popular as I know many people who would also like this! Please make it happen!!
New update? This new update makes it look like Time's Square! Why are snaps and stories on the same page? Of course Snap Inc needs to make a profit but this is beyond excessive. I miss the old Snapchat we had in 2015. It was simple, efficient, intuitive and filled with less bloat. I could focus on my friends.
Bug fixes and improvements! 👻
