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.
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.
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.
Love Snapchat as a whole but there are a few things that keep the app from being great. Two of those are that 1. The Android version of the app is not as good as the iOS version. 2. The top stories/search page is way too easy to accidentally open. I liked the design of the app much more when swiping down on the camera opened the page where you can see you score, access settings, etc.
The other updates are fine but the stuff to the stories in the "Discover" part is horrible. The layout before worked best. This way? It's hard to find friends or celeb stories vs random people vs media outlets to subscribe to. Just seperate all of that. It gives it a cleaner and more organized look. It gives it a better look. Change it so that everything is seperate rather than together.
I liked Snapchat until the last update... now It's super difficult to find and view your actual friends snaps and they promote a bunch of paid advertisers and "recommended" snappers to follow. I don't give a flying F* about random people! Put my friends back as the highlight of stories for me to watch!!!
Bug fixes and improvements! 👻
