"is it easy to share your location?" creepy feature. Incredibly awkwardly creepy. Need to be able to disable. So far I've just turned off my location all together. Terrible design idea. Seriously who came up with that garbage. Pedophiles will have field days over this. Be ashamed. Thankfully I don't have kids but what the actual
It's great social platform especially because I don't use anything else apart from this daily. Although it has so many problems on Android. The camera sometimes doesn't open. The keyboard rarely loads in on snaps. Sometimes it stops the whole phone for 15 minutes forcing me to hard reboot. Mind you, my phone is not a slouch either. I have an LG G3. It handles apps easily expect this one. My friend reports the same issues from his brand new Sony Xperia z5.
Map thing is beyond invasive. Ghost mode or not. No one needs to know where you are at at all times. That is only going to lead to harassment, stalking or much worse for some people. This company needs to be held responsible for any crimes that arise from this. You are putting your own users, your clientele's safety at risk. This idea should have never made it to development. You have a powerful app, do something good instead of promoting danger. Care about your users safety...
Highly disappointed!!! The app kept force closing so I updated it thinking it would solve the problem. Unfortunately it didn't so I uninstalled then downloaded it again. To my surprise all my pics from my snap memories from this year disappeared!!! I followed all the retrieving information I found online and still nothing has been fixed. I am extremely upset over this encounter.
I like the app, I do. The additional customization you've added to snaps have been great. I don't even mind the new map feature. I understand people's concerns with it, but all you have to do to avoid showing your location is turning on ghost mode or turning the location off on your phone. Simple as that. You can also have it where only friends can see your location. I wouldn't think people would have pedophiles added as their friends. Despite all of this, the reason why the review is 3 stars only is because you completely removed the timer on snaps. I think this is incredibly pointless, and you've never given us any sort of explanation for why you've done this. It feels like one of those changes that happened just for the sake of change. Bring back the timer and the rating will go up.
The app overall is great but the new snap map update doesnt work on my phone, whenever i try and open it, it says snap map is not available on this device. I have a samsung 3, its pretty old is there any way i can get it to work, or is it just not happening? Please help and snapchat will get 5☆ ♡♡♡
