New update
Tanner magic on 6/22/2017
This new update is very creepy and needs to be removed, I don't want anyone knowing my location. Snapchat please remove this feature. Yes of course I can put it on ghost mode but it's simply creepy
Please take off the map feature
CUSTOM LOCATION! on 6/22/2017
I do not feel safe AT ALL with people knowing my location on a map regardless of if I can turn it on or off that is NOT a safe feature!!
Oh heck no!
Maysansipid on 6/22/2017
Snapchat done f' up now! Y'all out here sharing mf addresses and show whea they at on the map 🤐‼️I feel like y'all the government‼️ why allat extra shid with the effin update‼️ but yo y'all probably might be the government snitching and scanning people's faces using those wack filters. 🙄delete this doggone app!
Stupid bitmoji !!!!!
tiandrea on 6/22/2017
I want my old profile back instead of this stupid bitmoji profile pic!!!

Why do you guys keep changing the app?
hate new update
Pepper_7377 on 6/22/2017
i love snapchat but the new update is so creepy. i don't like the fact people can track me and that i can track other people. i love the app overall but this new update violates users privacy.b
Tighten up
Ofwgkta_17 on 6/22/2017
I updated Snapchat but it keeps on freezing whenever I don't know why but it didn't do that before

Take this AWAY on 6/22/2017
I'm not happy with this update at all Snapchat I don't like how you can click on others bitmoji and find out where they are or where they live !? This is crazy there are to many creeps out there lurking and to many stalkers and bad people ! Please take this update away
mergen_smile on 6/22/2017
Love this app
stop updating dumb stuff !
Dessy143 on 6/22/2017
THAT MAP HAS TO GO!! nowwwwww.
Miranda Kathryn on 6/22/2017
Who the hell thought it was a good idea to let others see where you live?!
Dhdnfbdnf dnncncnncb on 6/22/2017
On older iPhones that don't have an updated version of sc, you can't even send videos , like what the crap☹️. And now you won't let the sc videos load either....ion like you sc😴.
Pineapple1234 on 6/22/2017
I loved being able to see who peoples best friends were and now that I've been robbed of that, I have nothing to live for.
HajIababizi on 6/22/2017
Get rid of the map?? That's how people get kidnapped. What were y'all thinkin
Jordnl569 on 6/22/2017
This update is horrible!! I have to constantly snapchat everyone i have a streak with otherwise the hourglass will show up and stay there even when I snapchat them. My streaks will randomly disappear and reappear for no reason.
User safety
AbsolutelyTrash103947283 on 6/22/2017
Snapchat won't let you change your username for "security reasons" but has now added a map that shows your exact location with street names and everything. The new map is unsafe and just adds bloat to an already glitchy app.
# of best friends
taylredarlingx3 on 6/22/2017
I love snapchat and have used it since it first came out. however, i'd like to change my number of best friends from 7 back down to 3. please add this feature back in because 7 is too much.
iChitaB on 6/22/2017
Seriously, before the last few upgrades Snapchat was a favorite. Please restore the previous version that lets the user choose their snapcode selfie or bitmoji avatar. I understand that Snapchat bought bitmoji but there's no need to push it on us.
Map is going TOO FAR!!!
mia757828 on 6/22/2017
THE MAP IS A HUGE INVASION OF PRIVACY. Knowing a friends location like if they are in Florida or So and So beach or New York City is fine but knowing people's locations down to the street name and where they are on that street is dangerous and creepy. I put myself on ghost mode but I get sick at the thought of people taking this too far. Let's say someone has an old ex on their Snapchat and that ex hasn't gotten over their feelings and can just go on maps and find that person and stalk them. Not the most common thing to happen but I hope you get my point. In all honesty I don't feel comfortable being able to see where my friends are right down to the street name. It's creepy and a huge invasion of privacy. My friends would want me to ask before meeting up with them and vice versa, not because we saw each other on a map. I hope this update is taken down soon.
Location Downgrade
Adates3 on 6/22/2017
The location update is upsetting and uncomfortable. People are creepy, so not comfy that casual friends know my exact location. Hit to privacy. Also, ruins the game assassins.
The map!!!
Diaxoxo on 6/22/2017
The new update is so dangerous! I don't understand why we have to know the EXACT location that people are at. I think it would be better if it gave the name of the area, not the actual houses. So dangerous!! And people keep getting kicked off of my snapchat for no reason.
ddaniekie on 6/22/2017
Whoever thought a maps option was great idea, needs to be fired!!! Why would anyone wanna turn their location on so people know exactly where they're at?! Makes it that much easier for stalkers or robbers to hit your house! It's plain stupid and unnecessary. UNSAFE FOR KIDS!!! This app is greeting ridiculous. Why don't you do something productive like fix the camera quality or something else! Bunch of crazy people who work at Snapchat.
Crashes constantly logging out
Ginger Mack S on 6/22/2017
Always logging me out and unable to view story's of my friends . Getting real annoyed with this app
Krazy1012 on 6/22/2017
I love this app that's why I gave it 3 stars but lately when I go into the app it only lets me go in for about 15 seconds before it goes black and kicks me out of the app. I'd be happy to I've it 5 stars if they fix the bug
SchnoberdoodlE on 6/22/2017
Snapchat continuously crashes and opens up all of my unopened snaps, so I could never see them.
Wayyyyy to personal
Rockrookie on 6/22/2017
If you zoom in all the way on the map feature you can look at like the house that's creepy
Cass_Cass786 on 6/22/2017
Can you please bring back the butterfly filter!! I love that one so much. The one with the yellow or gold butterflies on your head. Please.....
Dudhdhechd on 6/22/2017
The new maps update is NOT safe. You should not be able to see what street people are on, that's ridiculously dangerous for everyone
Snapchat username
Fhfjsn18192929jxjd on 6/22/2017

Snapchat update
Kaykay6777 on 6/22/2017
The new update is horrible && would cause a lot of things to happen 😒why would y'all even make that
Fjghhrtslph on 6/22/2017
I love it.
Purple gummy bear 💜💜💜 on 6/22/2017
After the update my device got super hot and I had to delete the app and reinstall it
Snapchat > Instagram all day.
Xkellinda on 6/22/2017
I'd prefer using Snapchat over Instagram any day. The best.
I really like this
Bafarihgdfff on 6/22/2017
I like the new update!

Nik Nak (-_-) on 6/22/2017

Snap streaks
Fjdksjhebenen on 6/22/2017
They should make notifications if your snap streak is going to end
Great but...
Kaylenfjdndd on 6/22/2017
This app is my favorite and I love using it. Heck without it I wouldn't be living right now. But there's are some issues with Snapchat. On random day I will go into Snapchat and my Snapchat will just continually close out, and I can't answer my Snapchat because of this. Another thing is frequently I'll get a Snapchat from someone and i will go to check it and it will be on open, I would know if I left the person on open and most of the time my snapchats are being opened and it's getting annoying. Please fix!!
Hey.imjamie on 6/22/2017
Snapchat I have 309 streaks 😭‼️I need a hit all streaks button 😌😭. My ha did get tired of hitting 309 of them separately 😌!
Latest Update Glitch
iluvdonuts2000 on 6/22/2017
The map update is pretty cool but since updating I've had a glitch responding to snaps. I'll open a snap and double tap to respond like I've always done, but something weird happens (I can't really tell what) and i think it like goes to the camera to respond with one tap (not on the reply button) and then reverses the camera without my telling it to do so. It's extremely annoying. Please release a bug fix update.
Fun and games
Just want help on 6/22/2017
It was all fun and games, until I could find out when my friends were sleeping. New update kind of weird.
I hate the new update!
ItsJessieBabe on 6/22/2017
I don't like how snapchat added the sticker, pen button, etc. vertical not horizontal. It's not helpful! Also with the new map update, when you view people's stories, they tell you how many hours ago it took place not the actual time WHICH I ENJOYED
Map Update
SamiJJ6400 on 6/22/2017
Please allow the person ghosting to be actually invisible on the map, not just a silhouette...
Remove the map
Ball24/7 on 6/22/2017
Dangerous and people can get hurt

P_unwood on 6/22/2017

1D ;) on 6/22/2017
