i use snapchat because im fucking a sexy cougar milf. A lil j-lo. Doesnt want the chats out there lmao. And you know if someone screencaps a chat or photo... so yeah. Otherwise fuck sc. I got my phone and messenger
I agree with all of your points, but I have to point out as a personal user, my main gripe with the new update is the same as everyone else's-- where the personal people's stories that I used to love became muddled & confusing.
Snapchat seems to be mistaking this as people whining about the social media content pushers not being personal anymore, where I don't think that is really the majority of people's main concern is.
The big thing though is that their UX has been terrible throughout + the camera, as you said, on Android makes it a selective platform + the new update making it more confusing = suicide.
Evan Spiegel is a class A bellend. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth and somehow is worth 4 billion for a terrible app. He’s an elitist prick calling android users “poor”.
The sooner his crappy app is forgotten about the quicker alternatives can be created.
Fuck you Evan.
It seems like theyre their own worst enemy. I don't think its the end of them by any means, if they fix their mistakes and listen to feedback from from their new update they can still save themselves. They need to have a better discover implementation which features individual content rather than clickbait news sources and better friend finding features. No one fucking cares what 2024 iPhone could look like or if another kardashian's is fucking knocked up again.
The new update is a complete mess, i haven't seen so many people stop using an app so quickly since Clash of Clans winter update back in 2015.
I'm actually not joking. 100% honest my entire life I've never had an Instagram account or ever used it but after the Snapchat update I finally had enough and I joined Instagram after a friend suggested it and... @ekyllier (pls follow me)
Although I've used Snapchat for years and miss it, I'm pretty happy with Instagram
So.. if you are moving to Instagram and not posting any snapchats any more, are you going to stop carrying your iPhone around as often? I believe I heard that as an implication. Though I must have misunderstood it.
I have a Huawei Mate 10 Pro and as I always say, the only reason I'd buy an iPhone is because of the look and the handling of snapchat!!!!! I have nearly everything on my Snapchat account but with the Mate 10, the zoom is Buggy, the picture quality is shit, it's blurry. Mate 10 has one of the best cameras on the market!!!! That's such a shame...
I don't get it dude
If I want to send a video to someone I open whatsapp, open the chat, click the photo button and hold the shutter button to record a video.
-Far less battery usage (from my experience)
-Actually saves video
-Doesn't use 700 MB of storage (from my experience) even though snapchat doesn't even save anything
Whatsapp also has "Stories" now and my friends actually use them because they let easily pick stuff from the gallery and they are actually well optimized and don't drain your battery like shit.
I mean there you go. I don't know why people (including me) started using snapchat in the first place. I only use it because my friends use it...
To be honest they can use the data they take from everybody, see what is like the 75 percentile of most user devices and develop individual patches designed for each phone that people can download before they start. This would seriously be better for Snapchat, and the load wouldn't even be that high when it comes to a dev standpoint.
