I have used Snapchat for a long time. It used to just be filters but I found out I could save them so I did. This is a great app and it’s super fun and time consuming (in a good way). The only thing is, most people don’t want to update this app because of the new thick black line around the ghost. It seems very irrelevant and unneeded. It makes the logo look unprofessional and not worked on hard enough. This line just seems so out of the ordinary, it looks like someone hacked into Snapchat and added the line! The ghost now looks less iconic and more like a knockoff app. Also, why is everything so inaccessible? I tried to get my grandma set up on this app and she couldn’t go a day without accidentally skipping a story. This app is so hard to even work with, considering everything is lost once you’ve closed it. It’s just annoying when your finger slips and you loose your video/message! Can you please make an option that makes it easier for the elderly to access Snapchat? My grandma is very sad that she could be like the “young people” these days on this app. On the bright side, you can share things with your friends and use fun filters. You can put text on your videos and photos. You can also add stickers to your media. Thanks for reading this review. It means a lot to me. Also, Snapchat, if you could take one of my recommendations or at least respond so that I know you are taking my review into account, that would be greatly appreciated.

I love Snapchat it’s pretty much the only app I use and I use it all the time everyday but since the update there has been a few bugs 1. It’s like not counting that I watched stories? Like I watch them but instead of going to the back of the line saying that I watched them and then just kinda disappearing when I text them cause I’ve already watched their story it doesn’t do that and like thinks I’ve watched the story already so like she I got to the story page the same people at in the front of the line and I keep thinking they posted something new but they didn’t it’s just their entire story again and Snapchat like doesn’t think I’ve watched it already and it won’t go away 2. When you text people in the chat it like glitches kind of and the keyboard like cover almost the whole screen so you can’t see what they said and you also can’t see what you’re typing like the keyboard just pops up larger and covers the whole thing and you have to swipe in and out of the chat multiple times go get the keyboard to be normal. Those are the only things I really notice right now that are kind of bugging me and a little annoying but otherwise I love Snapchat keep up the good work!!
Review by Hello from da uther siiidee
So, I love Snapchat. It’s my most used app and it’s my first way of trying to get ahold of someone. There have been some issues though. Most of the time, it will show me snaps and chats and videos that I’ve already opened multiple times. It’ll say “Tap to Load” the second or third time around, and once I tap it the snap, video, or chat goes away. It’s super annoying. Also, I have to wait on everything to load. I don’t know if this is an issue with my phone or what, but I don’t know how to fix it. It’s not that my wifi connection isn’t strong, because my friend can just swipe right over to her messages, but I can’t. I have to wait for my Bitmoji or my Story loads and pops up in its spot. If I don’t wait, then all of my old messages and stuff come back. They still do it even if I’ve already replied to them once. Another issue I just encountered was it not showing up. I received a text last night, but I didn’t open it. When I woke up this morning, I go to check it, and there’s no message there. There isn’t even the saved chats. It does that sometimes too, it deletes our saved chats. Anyway, when I go to the person who texted me, it just says “Received 7 hours ago” even though I never opened the message. I tried to contact Snapchat Help on the app, but the profile was nowhere to be found. So, I deleted the app and I’m re-installing it now. Thank you for reading!

I just purchased the new iPhone XR and was so disappointed the moment I entered into Snapchat. When I went to use the front facing camera, I noticed the quality is not what it used to be on my old phone, it was really fuzzy and zoomed in and then when I actually went to take a picture it immediately zoomed in even further and turned it even more blurry. So much worse than what videos on Androids look like. Thinking it was something with my phones camera I went into my camera app and was surprised to see the crystal clear picture on both my front and and rear facing camera. Updated my phone and tried again. Nothing changed. Looked online to see if there was anyone else in a similar situation and found a multitude of other users just as frustrated as I was. Waited for a couple weeks and installed numerous updates hoping they would fix this issue. Was disappointed each time. I loved using Snapchat before this happened, it really boosted my self confidence to be able to quickly snap cute, attractive pictures of myself and what I was up to to my friends. Now I can’t even get on the app because it turns my otherwise decently looking face to a blurry zoomed in mess. Please fix this Snapchat I would love to be able to use the app again!

OK I love Snapchat so much are use it every single day I use it for everything to text my friends call my friends post on my story let people know what I’m doing and I love it so much but, if it were just faster!!!Lately it has been lagging and axing me out of the tab and doing really crazy stuff lately at this point it’s getting very annoying and I wish you would just stop the most recent iOS update on Snapchat was just three days ago this is becoming absolutely absurd if they’re having updates within three days and it still continuing to be bad and having really bad bugs and saying that they’re fixing them is not correct, they actually need to fix the bugs and fix the lagging and fix all the terrible loading and axing out of the tabs and all the really crappy things and Snapchat will be perfect this is just my opinion but many other people are experiencing this to it has just been recently so it’s good that hasn’t been really really bad but lately it has been very bad many people running or changing the same thing so I know it’s not just me on my phone so let me know if you’re exchanging the same thing to!
Review by Ktiger101
I was really impressed with Snapchat back in the day, in that it enabled photo messaging and added filters to help with those of us who may have a bad skin day, keep our blemishes hidden by a smoother so when we send our friends a snap it doesn’t show our embarrassing acne spot to our possible crush, etc. The new updates to Snapchat are disastrous. First; I can not clear an entire conversation column and have to go one by one through the messages to clear them. Also you can’t look up your friends; how is anyone supposed to organize their friends list if we can’t even see who’s our friend without searching them? If you have 20 or so friends you are basically spending 2 minutes of your time trying to clear your snap window. Second; the stories; filled with biased propaganda and absolute garbage. I enjoy subscribing to some of the channels but the fact that most of these channels feature some of the most controversial topics and are completely one sided is unfortunate. I would like to see more middle liner content, and keep politics out of the playground unless your going to equalize and allow those who may not swing to the left side of the scale, be able to enjoy the features as well. Please read and consider Snapchat
Review by review IT!!
I recently got snapchat and love it, most people my age use it and is the best way to connect. lately I have been experiencing many problems though. When I open snap map only my bitmoji pops up and no other users when previously there were about 10 others on the map, I know they did not all turn location services off and my connection was fine because I could easy access other apps. This has happened a few times and it’s very annoying. Another thing is discover, a lot of the story’s are random and many don’t work. For example I will press a story from there title but when it opens has nothing to do with the title, and shows a bunch of ads, quizzes, or moves on to the next story. Another problem are the stories from my friends. When I watch the whole thing instead of disappearing it stays there and has the play button which makes me think they added to it but when I open it everything’s the same. I read a few other reviews that had these problems too. Speed is also a problem I go on snapchat and have to wait for about 30 secs for my messages and stories to pop up when they should come automatically, there is literally no excuse for snapchat to be this slow when OPENING the app.
Review by Booger cousin
Okay first off I love Snapchat it’s amazing and fun! It’s a really easy and simple way to get ahold on my friends, and a easy way to see where they are and what there doing:) the filters are really funny, I love to get one of the really funny ones and put it on my friends faces with out them knowing..hehe😂! I also love love the filter ones!! That’s what I usually take my photos with, for my Instagram, and to send to my friends😫❤️ I love to scroll down threw my saved to see all the cringe, butttt funny memories that I’ve gotten to make. But lately snap has been getting really glitchy and it shows me snaps, storys, and chats that I’ve already opened and sometimes with out me even opening they GO AWAY! And it really upsets me, because what if it was really important, you know? Another problem is the streaks thing! I have like 30 but I lost my highest streak (344) and she had already sent streaks to me! And the other day me and my cousin were sending each other videos of each other cause we were right beside one another and it told us we lost our streak when we where just send photos/videos of each other!👎🏻😡
Review by Aye mopeeeee
So I was on my snapchat and all of a sudden it just stopped working. I completely shut my phone off and I re-opened the app back up to see it still wasn’t working. So I thought the best way was to delete the app the download it again. So I did that, but then it wasn’t letting me log into my account? It kept saying “check your internet” and everything was just slow. When I finally got back into my account after like 5 minutes.. it showed I didn’t have any friends or anything, no pictures, no nothing, and then it finally loaded again after like 5 minutes. I can’t post stuff in my story without seeing the “failed to post” thing. My snaps were disappearing too, and they were my friends snaps not showing up. I finally got the app to work but not as well because it still is doing the same thing other than me being able to see my friends snaps. I hope you fix it soon because I’m really not enjoying how it is right now because it’s not working for anyone and my internet is perfectly fine. So that’s why I’m asking you again to just fix the problem. Please and thank you!
Review by Cjloe12
I’ve been using SnapChat for several years. I’ve enjoyed it a lot, never encountering an issue. Then suddenly, things began to change over the past few weeks. One night, I noticed that all of my Streaks had the time capsule next to them, indicating that they were about to end. So, I sent out Streaks to everyone, thus causing the time capsule to disappear and an extra day to be added to each Streak. When I woke up the next morning, approximately 9 hours later, all of my Streaks remained in tact except for one; my longest streak, spanning over 800 days plus. This is despite the fact that I sent out Streaks to everyone the night before, and all of the time capsules disappeared. Yet, just 1 Streak ended. The next day, both my friend (who I had the terminated streak with) and I filed reports through the app about the malfunction, but we’re left without a response. Since that day, I’ve encountered other issues such as the app crashing, Streaks failing to send despite having WiFi, and messages failing to send. I’m very disappointed in the malfunctioning of what was seemingly a reliable app for years, and the lack of customer service dealt to acknowledge my filed report. It would be upsetting if this went unnoticed, and a reliable user of an app was left dissatisfied.

Ok so I have been using Snapchat for a while now. It’s a great app I use it to keep in touch with my friends and post random stuff. But lately, snapchats been bugging out. So here’s my problem: I viewed my friends story nothing unusual, then it slid to the next persons story and so on and so fourth. Then a couple hours later I go back to Snapchat and it says I haven’t viewed their story yet. I was a little confused but viewed there story again anyway. I could see that they posted something new because I saw it on the little circle thing next to their name😂. But when I viewed the story I saw the exact same story I already viewed. This happened with four different people. I thought it was my phone even though it’s brand new. So I deleted Snapchat, logged back in, and the same thing happened. I did that numerous times before I just gave up and decided to write a review. (also another issue was I viewed one persons story then the next then the next but after that one as I was tapping for the next persons story it kept showing me that same persons story when there were still more to view?) I really hope you take the time to read my review and fix this little issue.😊
Review by Pup Simulater
Snapchat, you know how you added the group chat system a while back? There needs to be one change to it. We should have the ability to remove someone from a group. Here’s why: Okay, so, I decided that I wanted to make a group chat with my friends and use it to share stories as a way to get closer. I made the mistake of inviting one friend, however, as she would make the most ridiculous and inconvenient calls in the middle of the night. Not only that, but, she wasn’t using the system of MY chat as I intended. She abuses my group chat as she posts multiple pictures, despite me asking her to stop. That friend later says I yelled at her, then creates drama for everyone and keeps us all up in the middle of the night. That girl later posts something I call very disturbing, and the sad things are, for one, I couldn’t delete it, and the fact people were literally online, on my group chat, and saw that. Now what are they gonna think of me? I’ve had enough of it to the point I left the group chat. I got fed up, ok? Snapchat, PLEASE make this change right now, and I’ll give you a five star rating. Thanks for your time in reading this (if you did so already).
Review by Christian Boolang
i love everything about snapchat but one thing i can’t stand is going through you subscription story’s and seeing a interesting story’s that end up being 20 pages, but i’m complaining about the ads all around the screen, they make everything so glitchy. now i know this isn’t really snap chats problem but i hope they can make my time on their app more stress free by making it smooth and not frustratingly hard to read a article. look i was just talking a Urbo how many times will you fall in love quiz and me going through the questions when the page is super glitchy and it makes me click the wrong answer and then i can’t change it and has to restart, this is ridicules. then i finally got through almost all the questions and was at the final question and the screen went white. i tried to do anything in my power to save the progress but it didn’t do anything and i lost it. i just wanted a simple answer to how many times i would fall in love because snap chat hasn’t yet fixed this problem i felt the right to report this. and i know giving snap chat a one star is not the best thing to do if i love everything else in the app but i hope this will be seen and fixed as soon as possible so i can take my quizzes quick and smooth. Thank you
Review by BarbieBalla12
I usually don’t do reviews, but I’m really starting to get annoyed with the “next page” “next page” next page” “next page” “next page” story pages. The stories are really interesting, but eventually I will click next page and for some reason the page will just glitch and show a white page or pop up an ad that I can’t get out of except to press the “x” and after that, I don’t feel like scrolling all the way through the numerous “next page” buttons and ads, and therefore cannot finish the story that had already hooked my attention and I was almost done with. It’s been doing this for about a year or more. Eventually I just don’t even want to read the stories that writers spent their time writing. I have an iPhone XR and I am connected to internet that has never gave me any issues. Plus, like I said.. it has been going on for a long while now and I’ve been on numerous devices and connected to numerous WiFi connections. That said, the problem is most definitely stemming from the application. Please take this problem into consideration as I really enjoy this Snapchat feature, I just wish I could actually finish the stories that I have already invested my time into reading.
Review by brbieboy
okay so the past 2 days my snapchat has been acting weird. i mean sure this complaint is not really a big of a deal but i just can’t get use to this issue. i cant see when my friends are in the chat and when they’re not because i cant see their bitmoji’s but it does give me a notification that this particular person is typing its just that whenever i go to the conversation i don't see him/her typing or there at all even if they are there. at first it was tolerable but then it got worse when i couldn’t even figure out whether or not they have opened my snaps or messages because there were some points that i know they’ve seen it but it’s just not saying it’s been opened. i have tried every solution i could think of to fix this glitch or bug or whatever but nothing worked. i’ve tried logging out then logging back in of snapchat, deleting the app then reinstalled it again, and resetting my phone. i dont know what else to do. so please if you can at least give me an update for the app i’d be very glad. thank you.
Review by ShaggyDabbyDoo14
I’ve had this app for YEARS and have never had this problem occur until yesterday. So...a basic run down of how it happened...I tried to post to my story, and it kept saying “failed to post” or whatever so I tapped retry, and it posts...for like half a second until I close the app and reopen it...then it does the same thing. So now I got a ten second story that was supposed to be a minute long in total....and the rest of the videos are gone because I didn’t save them because I didn’t think I had too..anyways...onto the next problem...I wake up this morning and try to look at my other friends stories...and it won’t play theirs either...it’ll play their old ones that I’ve already seen but none of the new ones that they’ve posted in the last hour or so. Plus it keeps recycling the same persons story when I try to click through them to get to the next person. I’m not sure if it’s an update error or if it’s a minor bug but I would really like for it to be cleared up soon. Other than these two recent problems I haven’t had any issues with the app! It’s great in total I just think something went wrong in the recent update!

hi. i had 2 factor authentication enabled due to someone logging into my account in february, and today i decided to turn it off because it was getting super annoying. i went to turn it off, and it said i was disabling, but it was taking super long so i just swiped out. then, my snapchat started to not work by saying there was no connection when i knew there was. and so i deleted the app, restarted my phone, and did all of that and it wouldn’t even let me into my account. i can’t even explain how frustrated i am right now. there is a lot more to it but i’m having trouble even typing because if this isn’t fixed, i would have lost every single memory since 2017, along with pictures and videos of my now deceased grandpop, which are the only pictures that my family has of him. i have logged out like 6 times since this problem and each time, i get a message saying “could not connect”, and then i have to change my password in order for me to able to get back into my account. my private stories are gone, all my snapchats are gone, and no stories are gone. my memories aren’t loading either and i’m getting no notifications. i did get 2, but when i would rap the notification to open the app, there would be nothing there. FIX IT. I AM VERY VERY UPSET.
Review by kenna.bug
Okay where do I start.. Snapchat is an amazing app because you can FaceTime and text your friends if you or your friends don’t have minutes on your phone. Also I love the filler’s and I like how you can block people if the are being rude I’ve had to do that a couple of times.. and I like how you can save chats just in case someone is being rude to your friends they if you save them you can show your friends what the person has been saying about them. And now let’s talk about updates..ever since the update my Snapchat isn’t working as well as it was but it still works good and sometimes it pops up that I have know filler’s. BUT it is because I never refresh my Snapchat😂 So remember if something weird happens alway refresh your Snapchat DON’T be like me and never refresh your Snapchat... so that was just a little story that happened to me about a week ago😂 but yes Snapchat is amazing oh and another thing do not add strangers.. trust me I done that but let’s not even go there😬😬 And yes if you are aloud I recommend you getting Snapchat👻👻 bye
Review by Disgruntled Snapchat User 55
I love the primary function of Snapchat. But there should be options to customize a feed. For instance, some people (although I’ve never met them) probably like official stories and enjoy seeing them. Someone like me who hates official stories and thinks that they are biased, misleading, complete wastes of time and that they lower millions of IQs every day, would appreciate an option to hide all official stories because I don’t care about celebrities, crazy people seeking validation or loudmouths trying to get my attention. I just want to communicate with my friends. You might respond “oh, you can hide stories you don’t like”. Well I tried hiding all stories I don’t like but more kept popping up in the “Discover” section, stories that I hated even more. Just make an option to hide official stories, it’s that simple. I’m talking an option to completely hide them from the app. I think I’ll probably delete Snapchat sooner if nothing changes and I hope you realize it’s a shame that you’re indoctrinating young people like me with the most mind-numbing, useless content around. On a positive note, you do have at least one good official story: “Snapped in the Wild”. Who cares about some brainless instagram model when you can watch animals rip each other to shreds. Thanks.
Review by TehPers
The chat textbox is way too short. There are five icons on that row, and only three are intuitive (camera, microphone, and smiley face). One icon is two rectangles overlapping each other (select photos),and one's a rocket ship. Yes, a rocket ship. How often am I going to be asking my friend to play a Snapchat game with me? Probably never, so why make the textbox smaller just for that meaningless icon? Instead of cluttering the chat textbox row and making the textbox a 1 inch wide oval, it would be nice if this mess of icons could be collapsed into a single menu to allow the chat textbox to take up most of the width of the screen so I can see what I'm typing. For reference, Discord's chat textbox takes up most of the width of the screen, and there are only three buttons there (attachment, emoji, send). Slack moves all those extra icons onto the next row so the chat textbox can be the full width of the screen minus one icon. Snapchat could do something similar to Discord and limit the chat textbox's row to having the diction button, emoji/bitmoji/etc, and photo (which would include camera, camera roll, and memories). The games button could be moved to the top of the screen next to the other infrequently used buttons.
Review by Hockeygirl78
I love Snapchat it is an amazing app. It is great for texting your friends and sending them pictures or playing games. Although, lately it has been annoying me. As I said, I like to play the games. I like the ones where you open the front camera and then hold down to get the lenses and then when you swipe left you get to choose a game to play. I recently got an IPhone XR and when I try to play the games it’ll either not give me the option to play my next turn or it won’t let me click the play button. I always replay the snap in hopes that it’ll let me play but it never works. This never happened when I had my iPhone 7, so I’m thinking it has something to do with the fact that Snapchat is trying to adjust it to the new phone but I’m not to sure. I’m hoping that this will eventually be fixed so that I can continue to enjoy my experience. All this aside, I will continue to use the app because I love it and it is a good way for me to talk too friends. If you are thinking of downloading this app definitely do it.
Review by Chris.710
Old article content. They pull topics from years ago... Snapchat used to be great, but now it is plagued with content that is of very poor taste. You click something you’re interested in reading about or listening to and it takes you through 4-5 completely irrelevant corny articles and ads that make you wonder what happened to society and then you finally get to the article(s) of interest. It’s for kids, and nothing more. Tasteless marketing targeting children which is unfortunate because I have used this app for quite some time on every recent device, but can’t stand the “Demi said WHAT?!?” Or “you won’t believe what _____ wore to the beach!” But today I saw one that said “how EXPERIENCED are you really?” With a picture of 2 condoms and all I could think of was how CLASSLESS the author of that article must be, knowing CHILDREN use this app more than adults! Unreal.. goes to show people will put their class and morals aside for some kudos from their higher ups. Really corny tactics to draw an audience. I figured these click bait articles would be obsolete by now but with this new generation, it is a field day for the marketing team. Money over everything 🤦♂️
Review by Natalie Pham
Hey, I wanna say that I LOVE SNAPCHAT SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!! I’m on it every day to do streaks, watch stories, and chat with my friends in general!! There are three things that I really don’t like though. The first thing is that there’s a bug with removing friends. My friend never removed me, but the system made her remove me. Please fix that so that she doesn’t have to keep adding me constantly. That happened twice already. Another thing is that YOU CAN’T REMOVE OTHER PEOPLE FROM A GROUP CHAT!!! I hate this because there’s one person in one of our group chats who won’t stop talking to us, and it’s REALLY annoying how we can’t remove him and have to deal with his chats and snaps. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let us remove other people from group chats so that no one gets upset. The last thing is that if you block someone and they’re in a group chat with you, THEY CAN STILL SEE YOUR MESSAGES. That makes NO sense! If you block someone, PLEASE make it so that they can’t see anything from you at all!! Thank you VERY much, and I’M BEGGING YOU GUYS to fix these problems and keep everyone happy!!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🥺🥺🥺
Review by Shellbo6987
The new way saving stories to memories isn’t always working when there’s more than a few snaps. Before the button once pressed would show the status with a circle showing how much has been uploaded until it’s done but now when it actually works it pops up on the top of the screen on a bar, it if you don’t manually wait and go back to check a lot of times it doesn’t finish saving and then after the 24 hours they are gone. There needs to be a better status showing when or if it’s working. Also, in Our Story Snaps, some snaps save and other dont ie 2 weeks who snaps show up and then ones within the past 3 days are no where to be found. I like to save everyone I post into one story for each day and there’s no easy way to do it. There should be a way to set a time of time to be automatically saved in one story together like 9am to 5pm or 11am to 9pm or maybe if one story ends and then a large group of snaps are posted before that first snap is to expire there needs to be a way to get a notification from SC itself that ask if you want to save the latest set of post to a story before they disappear from existence
Review by Myster Myster
Snapchat is a great app to talk to your friends and family. :) I love being able to see all my saved memories, even from past years. One problem I have is that when I go into my “My Eyes Only”, and I input the correct password (I know it is correct for a fact because I put in each number slowly so as not to be locked out),snapchat proceeds to lock me out. I continue to put in that same passcode because as I said, I know it is the passcode I have used for the past 3 years and I put in each number carefully. Snapchat, I don’t know what the issue is, but I would like to enter my “My Eyes Only” with my password. I did login to my account on a separate device, so maybe that had something to do with Snapchat locking me out of my “My Eyes Only” despite inputting the correct password. But that should still be no excuse to it be able to enter my “My Eyes Only” and be locked out for hours despite inputting the correct password. I have important memories saved, and I would like to never worry that they will be lost forever. Thank you.
Review by Slizsch
I don’t know why I ever downloaded it in the first place, but since I only use it on occasion, I don’t think on it that often. At the beginning, I did all of the setup routines by choosing my interests and subscriptions, which includes mostly cooking and animals. It didn’t take long for me to realize how much I hated the program. First, no matter what you choose to subscribe to, the foul Kardashian/Jenner clan will always pop up. I can’t go a day without hearing about the one who redid her whole face just so she could look like her siblings. It’s amazing how a few basic girls can fool a nation into thinking they are hot, innovative, and genuine! Second, the stories that do seem somewhat interesting must have been written by a high school dropout. I teach English, and one of the common topics that I discuss with students is brevity and getting to the point. Someone needs to review that with the crap writers on here. Lastly, the program itself bugs out constantly. I am usually in the middle of an article when it just ends. The only way to get back to it is to scroll through the crap that you already read. Listen, it’s just not worth the hassle. You’ll be better off downloading a news source or, pretty much, anything that isn’t Snapchat.
Review by Kattlyn23
This new update made my snapchat slower and won’t post anything I put on my story. It’ll say it posted and as soon as I close out it never posted. Won’t load any chats or snaps, barely lets me send either, keeps saying no connection or can’t load even when I have full LTE bars and full WiFi connection. I’m on vacation and would like my friends and family to see what’s going on instead of sending everything individually on multiple apps. It is for real to the point that your updates are going to make me break my phone. This needs to be fixed TONIGHT/TODAY! Your new updated never fixed any bugs for me and from what I can see, many others as well. This is one of the worst times of the year to have these issues due to it being summer. I’m sorry about your update being poor, but maybe you should run a test run on your app for a few days to a week before releasing the update. Everything was perfectly fine before this update and I regret updating my app because of it. All I have seen this update do is make people angry and upset. If your feedback for this new and improved update is this poor and your rating are going down, this app won’t be the big hit it is today than it will be tomorrow.
Review by Fjhhgfcfhc
I use Snapchat every single day guaranteed and it’s basically the only app I use. I give it a 5/5 for its excellent work of providing us with stories, a camera, and a section to chat in. Although, today, I have been having a problem with my story. I go to post something and it says it’s sent to my story. When I go to check my story, Snapchat says that the post had failed to send. As soon as noticing this early in the morning, I tried reseting my phone, deleting then reinstalling the app, and even restarting my WiFi. Yet, non of these helped me find the solution. In the afternoon, I went to a friends house and even connected to her wifi, my snaps still wouldn’t upload! At one point I tried saving the snap I wanted on my story and then posting it from my camera roll. Still no luck! I hope I’m not the only one having this problem but either way I would really appreciate it if you guys could fix this glitch. Other than that, thank you and keep up the good work :)

I love the app, it’s good for communicating with fiends, weather it be through a chat or a snap with funny filters or a group chat! The group chats are amazing, no doubt about it, it’s helpful and it’s got a lot of interactivity, but one thing that could be helpful for a lot of people, is the option to mute a group chat without having to get on the app or on settings. What I mean with this is that sometimes people are busy on their phones or have something important and can’t get off what they’re doing to mute a group chat or go to settings. So....if you could implement an option where we could slide down on the notification of a group chat and mute it without having to get off what we’re doing at the moment, and whenever we get on the app to check the messages, the option of muting could disable automatically, or just have the option to mute it for a certain amount of time, but over all, the app is good, I love it and it’s fun! 😊🙂

Snapchat in my opinion is a very good app for communicating and memories. I personally love it because I can talk to all of my friends and family through this app. A few of the reviews say that since the update there has been a few bugs but ever since I have had it which has been years I haven’t had a problem. Every update it just the app just gets better and better. I also like this app because if you run out of storage on your phone you can save the images and always have them as memories. If you have younger siblings and don’t have a way to communicate through the phone this app is here to help. You can create your own filters, save images, call, text, and a lot more... if you want the opportunity to make nice new friends then this is the app for you. DISCLAMER if you use a birthday date under the age of 13 then you will not be able to create an account. You also have an avatar and you can edit it to your liking. I hope you guys enjoy the app.👩🏽💻

So snapchat is a great app and I have been using the app for around 6 years now. I love the recent adds to the app such as: searching filters from local artists, snap group chat calling, and the timer for photos and videos. One thing I believe that Snapchat should have added a while back ago is the ability to select every user you have a streak with automatically. This would help snapchatters not take the time to click all their streaks and it would make the process more enjoyable. Also, snapchat has been having a couple bug fixes that are not up to par, but that are fixable. After you post on your story, your views somehow drop a couple hundred after around 12 hours past. Also, sometimes you watch the same stories over and over again. However, since these are minor and fixable errors that can be fixed with an update, the app still stays my most used app. It’s a great way to connect with friends & family and is one of the premier social media outlets.

I love SC and use it daily. Recently there must have been an update because things aren’t working right. I blocked several people from viewing my story, yet almost all of them ended up viewing it. This happened twice in the past week. I never used to have that problem. Another issue is people whose stories I muted are now showing up over in the stories section... that never used to happen either. I’ve also opened the app and saw I had a message but was never notified the person was typing or had sent anything. Small thing but I’ll mention it... when sending videos from memories it now tells the person it’s from memories and the date... that’s a new feature that would have been nice to be notified of lol. I usually don’t complain about updates and just deal with whatever changes happen but these bugs are frustrating. What is the point of being able to block people from your story if you’re going to wake up to a lovely surprise that they all saw it anyway...

Snapchat is an app I use on the daily. I love being able to talk to all my friends and making new ones. The past two days my Snapchat has been acting really strange. When I attempt to add something to my story it won’t upload and it asks me to try again. When it does go through and uploads it says no one has viewed it. Even when it’s been up to 7 hours and usually I have a lot of people view it by then. Another problem that is happening is that snaps that was sent to me at night come through the next morning. Not only these problems but also it shows were someone has put something new on their story and I tap on it but yet it won’t show me the new snap. Just the older ones. A lot of people have been talking about this problem and I think the Snapchat team could look to see what they can do to fix it. I really enjoy this app and I would hate to not be able to use it anymore. Thank you!

Ok so I love Snapchat I can talk to my friends even if they don’t have service. I can send videos and pictures easier. I can post stuff in my story to share things but ever since the newest update happened it’s not working like it used to. I’m in a group chat and I can’t see any of their chats but a notification tells me that they sent a chat. I try refreshing it and it doesn’t work. Also my friend texted me and I didn’t even know that he texted me until 45 minutes later bc it didn’t show up, it just said opened. I used to really like Snapchat but ever since it’s been really annoying. I just want to text my friends without being like what did you say? And I won’t see people’s story’s until 10 minutes after they posted it. I don’t know why this is happening but it’s very annoying. It’s also been very slow ever since the new update. I would like to just texts my friends in peace. So if you could look into fixing that, that would be nice, thank you.
Review by wolfpup790
there are a few bugs in this app that just came up and i can’t seem to solve anything with the troubleshooting in app support. 1) it won’t refresh. i just tried to go into the app and i have full wifi and bars and it still said “could not refresh”. so i restarted my phone, deleted the app, turned my wifi on and off and it still wouldn’t work. i reinstalled the app and it wouldn’t let me log in. it said i didn’t have enough connection. it finally let me log in and then it still wouldn’t refresh. it said “you have no snaps” and on the stories page it said “you don’t have any friends yet”. PLEASE FIX THIS I CANT USE SNAPCHAT RIGHT NOW AND DONT WANT TO LOSE MY CONTACTS. 2) it lags a lot when i’m chatting with a certain person. it will freeze and then take a couple seconds to save the chat or send a chat. it’s only with one person when i’m chatting with them. 3) it repeats people’s story’s, even on subscriptions even when i have already watched them multiple times. it acts like i haven’t watched them and repeats them over again. thanks for reading this.

Update: Thank you Snapchat! You are now my #1 favorite app. I use Snapchat everyday now that I can delete embarrassing photos I had sent or received. They listen to what you have to say and fix things. It is now the perfect app that I use everyday. I love Snapchat...BUT why are all of my old messages and pictures (from years ago) still saved when looking at the history in the message center? I clear the conversation and they are not saved so why are they still showing up? I don’t want to see conversations or what someone sent me or what I sent them three years ago. When I delete it, I want it gone! I don’t want conversations or embarrassing drunk photos saved from three years ago. Delete mean I want it gone from my eyes. The only reason I am giving three stars is because I love this app for keeping in touch and adding to my story so friends and family can see.
Review by Gabbarex
I've had Snapchat for years now, and it just seems like the longer I have it, the more bugs there are. I cannot tell you how many times I've watched a story to the end only to still have a purple outline around it, telling me that I have not watched it. Recently, it's been making me watch the same story multiple times with no end to it unless I swipe out of it. I DO enjoy the new features they come out with like the Snapchat map to see what my friends are up to, the new tools you can use to edit your Snapchats (I love those so much!),and some of the stories or subscriptions they have on the Discover page. However, from what another user noted in their review, I do agree that the subscriptions are very heavily biased (or even click-bait) and I dislike how one-sided they are. This makes me feel that you do not encourage your users to have their own points of views on different topics. Anyway, for me, bugs have begun to outweigh the things I like about Snapchat because that's all I have been dealing with for a while. Please fix them. 🙏🏼
Review by fucksnapchatimirritatedSfuck
For about a month now Snapchat has suddenly been lagging. Upon opening, typing in the app, using the camera, literally anything that is supposed to be used on Snapchat takes 1 million years to load. Even taking videos, taking LITERAL “SNAPS” turn out clitchy and awful. I’m ready to delete this app if the problem isn’t resolved. Edit: it’s been a while since my last complaint as Snapchat has updated and fixed the problems I was having. However, I still experience getting notifications and finding snaps opened that I never opened myself. Recently the most frustrating thing is my Snapchat app won’t allow me to take videos. If I try to hold down the button to take a video, it will just pause the last frame the camera viewed until I release the button, and will end up leaving me a picture of whatever the camera viewed last. The button never turns red to indicate I’m recording. I’ve tried exiting out of apps, restarting my phone, even deleting and redownloading the app and nothing has solved this issue. It’s just confusing because the main function of Snapchat is to “snap” pictures and images, which has never been such an issue.
Review by AZ🔥💯
Honestly I love snapchat, it’s the only social media I have. But instead of sprucing up the layout, how about we fix these bugs? It’ll force close. Glitch my whole phone. Won’t let me send streaks or upload. Won’t allow me to access or find my snappers. It’ll show notifications when there isn’t any. And it’ll also send me notifications of messages that I got hours to days ago that I have already read and or replied to. And it runs slow as hell. It’s definitely not my phone, as I’ve checked for this multiple times. It’s terrible. It needs to be cleaned and fixed. Seriously. It plays my snaps out of order, load stories I’ve already seen, resends messages I’ve already opened, and force changes password. I signed out and when I tried to sign back in, entering the correct credentials with full WiFi, it says there’s a bad internet connection when there isn’t, causing me to not be able to sign back in. I’m a public figure and young upcoming actress and Snapchat is one of my networks for me being able to communicate, be informed, and reach my audience and this bugging is getting in a way of a lot of that.

Snapchat is great. I love how you can decorate the screen with stickers and gifs. There’s a lot of customization on your snaps, and making them unique. However, I would love the option to select a gif or sticker and favorite it. Make a folder for it, just like how there’s a recent option for the stickers and gifs that you have previously used. Just but a favorites folder next to that. And to add stickers or gifs to it you could either hold and drag them into the favorites folder, like you do when you throw away your cut outs. Or you could hold and press them giving you an option to do something with the sticker. Being able to favorite stickers and gifs would be extremely beneficial when you open up gifs and the “GIFHY TRENDING” appears. Second thing you could do is be able to hold down on a sticker or gif and then find out what to search up if you would like to use it in the future. Thank you.

I’ve been having an issue lately with my microphone not working, and I couldn’t figure it out. I would be on call and the conversations would cut out. I couldn’t hear them and they couldn’t hear me. The mic would not work on voice memos after it would cut out, or let me record videos on snap (sometimes it would be no sound, sometimes crazy sounds, and sometimes it would say “unable to record”). Today I was trying to record on snap, and it did it again. I restarted my phone, it was working, but soon after stopped again. I got frustrated and decided to delete snap. Suddenly my mic started working normally. I re-downloaded snap, and went off thinking it was a coincidence. Later my mic again cut out while I was recording on snap, so I deleted it again, and since I haven’t had one tiny issue with the mic on any app. Could this be from having too much storage in my Snapchat? Or is it something happening to anyone else? It’s just really annoying that it’s messing with my whole phone, not just the app.
Review by coldNFLlover
The app overall is incredibly good. A friendly user interface, easy chat and posting mechanics, and bright and vibrant colors. But there are many issues with the app. For example, the Snapchat map used to be to see where your friends were, what they’re up to, and also seeing what people around the world are doing. Now it’s just people advertising their Snapchat accounts for views. The whole idea of Snapchat was to make a social media platform that doesn’t have like feature to prevent bullying. Now people only care about views, which really don’t matter at all. The explore feature has become a way for liberal companies spread their ideas everywhere and seeing what the latest celebrities are doing. Who cares! And the worst part of Snapchat is the streaks feature. It is completely useless. It is essentially a way to brag about your terrible Snapchat addiction to your friends. I personally don’t do streaks, and for some reason I get shamed by people for not? It’s just a stupid mechanic with no use that should be removed. :)
Review by Anna.p.g.
I hardly use Snapchat anymore because it’s no longer fun. The public stories are no longer from around the world or themed and showcasing funny strangers. Instead they’re of celebrity’s lives or magazine posts you can get anywhere- if Snapchat needs to share those to make money, then at least still keep (and most promote) what made Snapchat so special to begin with-it’s celebration of culture and life’s authentic moments. Also, all of the Snapchat-created filters are now about looking sexy, but in a twisted, demeaning, and socially corrosive way that interprets sexy as also making you look like a 12 year old girl. Where are the funny filters, the themed filters, that you could actually utilize to make a good story with? Snapchat’s estimation of their audience has clearly degraded. That, or they think users want out of Snapchat what users want out of Instagram- to share their best looking moments and follow the ‘best looking’ experiences. But Snapchat is a different platform, of course we want a different use out of it. Stop interpreting your audience as one dimensional.
Review by MitchLF21
Snapchat, in its nature, kind of opens the fires to toxic people, in the fact that anything anyone says can be instantly deleted by the person without leaving a trace it was ever said. It also can be there opposite, where someone joins a group, or gets added without the rest of the group being okay with it, and now this person won’t go away. The app desperately needs an option to remove people from groups. If not give the option to remove people from groups to the person who started the group, give an option where people can vote/request people out of a group, which would be anonymous. If, say, at least 75% wants a user out, the user is removed. It’s very frustrating having to make new groups without all our saved stuff whenever some random person is added as a joke or something, and then doesn’t leave... Please add a remove feature, ideally as an option to the user that made the group in the first place.
Review by jsndhyfmyzfusggxjc jfkcg
It’s a great app! there is just a big problem. So I was just on snapchat, got off and went on a different app for two seconds then went back on snapchat. It was on the “login of signup” page. I was super confused because I know that before I left the app I didn’t log out. I tried logging back in but couldn’t remember my password because I have had the account for a couple of years and didn’t have the password saved. I had a mini panic attack because I tried to put my number in to update my password but that didn’t work, then I tried to use email to do the same thing but that also didn’t work. I was crying because I thought I had lost all my great memories and friends. I decided to try my number again because I was super upset and just desperate for something to work. luckily it worked and I updated my password and got back in to my account. I was very very scared. Please fix this so it doesn’t happen again. Thank you.

I use Snapchat every single day but I customize my story a lot to make sure that only people that I’m friends with can see it. When I block people from seeing my story, half the time they’re still able to see it. It’s frustrating when my story is only meant for certain people to see, but everyone else can still see it even after I went through all the trouble to block everyone besides a few people. I also love reading the articles on Snapchat but I get halfway through the article and then the screen just goes white and I have to exit out of the article and scroll all the way down to where I was before. I get too frustrated and don’t finish the articles that I was in the middle of reading because the whole screen turns white more than once. Please fix these issues and I will give the app 5 stars. Also, automatically taking my location isn’t ok. I understand that I can turn it off but then I can’t use certain filters and a lot of children use this app and don’t realize that they can turn their location off. It’s dangerous to be sharing an 8 year old locations Jesus Christ🙄
Review by Kandaaaaa1
snapchat is great i use it all the time to snap my friends and look at different stories but i got the xr a while ago and taking pictures with the snapchat camera is horrible. the camera is too close up and i would’ve rather got the iphone 8 just for snap. when i take selfies it is too close to my face and even holding my arm out all the way it still looks bad and close up. and then i try to use the flash which still looks bad. my friends have the iphone 8 which every snapchat photo they take with or without the flash looks good. i would rather use the camera app but i LOVE the different filters on snapchat that other people make. if the snapchat camera was better for the xr it would be perfect. i know the app says its compatible with the xr but i still don’t understand why the camera is like that when the regular camera app is far away and good. shouldn’t the selfie camera on snap look the same as the regular camera app? please fix this, thank you.
Review by This_Guy04
The amount of ads that have been incorporated into Snapchat over the months have been absolutely absurd. I cant even finish those articles now because it glitches me to the top after it fully loads, it takes awhile to load even on WiFi because of all the ads, there are more ads on the page than words of the article!! An article that could usually take up 1-2 pages, now takes up way too many to count because of all the ads on each page. It’s like going to a free download page on a computer where it’s nothing but ads just to download something. Plus the lag it causes it unreal, i cant even look through the stories because all of the Lilly gaging each story has in it instead of just the details and some suspense. I mean come on, there are even ads where you can’t skip them, i thought snap was a great place to see and read all these articles, but with all the lolly gagging in them and the ads and having to clip next 20 times and have to wait for it to load, I’m done with. It needs to go back to the old way when Snapchat wasn’t penny pinching for money and being selfish.
Review by Neeca Rain
It is ridiculous that i did not do anything wrong on snap i have no third party apps, i am 20 years old and my snapchat email and phone number is correct. Yet it kicked me out saying my account is temporarily locked and this is the second time it happened. I don’t understand why snapchat is locking people’s accounts for no reason. My bf account is locked for 1 whole week now. Snapchat support is not even helping. It is one of the worse customer service ever. If you want to better your app fix the bugs and help people. I never complained about this app its been good to me all these years but temporarily locking someones account for no reason at all is unfair. I have so much memories on there and I do not spam anyones account or harass anyone or do anything i do my streaks take photos and go about my day. This is absolutely ridiculous keep doing this to peoples account and see how much people you will loose from using this social media. Just fix the issue so people don’t have to worry about it unless they doing something wrong then lock the account but don’t lock people out for no reason at all.
Review by snap chat is WACK lately
Hey Snapchat. I been really enjoying the name game mode feature you guys added as of late. Me and my friends play it pretty often. However I don’t get why you don’t allow us to communicate with other players that aren’t that we play with. Sometimes we really want to talk to people that’s also in game with us. It’s nice meeting new people from across the world. Or at least allow us to have an option to add them. I was playing today and it “seemed” like I made 2 new friends during the breaks because we always take the photos together and dance together on the dance floor and follow each other etc, but there was no way for us to communicate. I think the new game feature would be super lit and even better if you can allow the players playing the game together to chat with one another. I don’t really see any cons to allowing this to happen and I only see pros.

Have a Problem with Snapchat? Report Issue
Why should I report an Issue with Snapchat?
- Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of Snapchat to your problem using the strength of crowds.
- We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
- Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
- If you are a Snapchat customer and are running into a problem, Justuseapp might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using Snapchat.
