For a long time, I avoided Snapchat because I thought it was owned by Facebook and, well I'm not a big fan of Facebook... But all those flashy photo filters eventually convinced me to sign-up regardless and in the process, I was glad to discover that Facebook don't actually own Snapchat. As for the application itself, I don't actually use Snapchat for social networking, just the photo filters, but it seems to work flawlessly and it is loads of fun!
The app is great! It works really well and all features are amazing. I would give it 5 strata but there's on thing that's REALLY making me mad. My Snapchat trophies won't show up. At first, they worked fine. I could send countless snaps and the trophies would show up as soon as i achieved it, now? Not so much. I sent my friend 100 snaps with the big font and the trophies didn't show, i sent another friend a snap were i flipped the camera 5 times and the trophies didn't show. Also my phone won't let me get into night mode, so I'll never be able to get that trophy. Please fix this, otherwise part of the enjoyment of the app dies.
Not sure if it's my phone. Got a galaxy s5 neo, but sometimes I can't click anything. It just stays at the camera screen and the icons go all bold but nothing happens, no matter which way I swipe... plus it would be nice if we could rotate photos from the camera roll when posting to "my story". Other then that would give 5 stars! As of 05/24/2017
Starting to use Snapchat less and less as time goes on. Constantly adding useless features and loading in ads everywhere. I admit that the performance of the app has improved over time, notifications are no longer broken, and it doesn't freeze on startup anymore, but Snap Inc still has yet to put the effort into the Android version of the app that they need. The method of image capture they use results in terrible quality pictures, and I really feel like they are starting to care less about a great app for socializing with friends and more about creating revenue on ads.
Have you ever captured 10 seconds of a rare moment you thought you could save from snapchat to your gallery and then share with all of your friends and family? Well I have, only to have the App crash before I can do anything. I tried factory resetting my phone and it seems to only have gotten worse. Please fix this.
This app is one of my most used, but also one of the most poorly optimized apps I've used. When in the app my Wi-Fi will constantly stop working and I'll have to leave the app for it to come back. Using the app significantly heats up and slows down my phone, no other app really does this. When used in conjunction with Messenger bubbles, the bubbles don't function correctly as Snapchat seems to interfere with typing and response time & my phone overheats.
