Snapchat faces backlash over the new user interface from its users

Snapchat faces backlash over the new user interface from its users

The updated app still opens the camera, but nearly all other aspects have been overhauled.

The new update also includes a new "Friends" page when you swipe left, where you can see Stories from friends you chat with frequently. This is provisioned to show the friends to the users based on as how well do they engage with them. Meanwhile, swiping right from the Camera screen will bring you to Discover, which now has a full-screen, vertically-scrolling layout. The Discover page is now arranged in a vertical pattern. These are moved to the new Friends Page along with the regular Snaps and messages.

A Snapchat spokesperson said, "Updates as big as this one can take a little getting used to, but we hope the community will enjoy it once they settle in".

Other users expressed their disbelief via Twitter by complaining about the difficulty in viewing and even finding stories, something which Snapchat should specialize in since it founded the very concept itself. But the company has so far pushed it out to only 40 million users. Then they add a custom caption like "Happy Birthday, Josh!" using Snapchat's new fonts we scooped last week including Brush, Italic, Glow, Gradient, Rainbow, Fancy, and Old English. You can't really "undo" app updates - unless you're an Android whiz, managed to keep the APK of the old version on a secondary device, and then are able to manually extract it and flash it back to your primary device. After that, you'll see an option to disable automatic app updates.

The House on Tuesday passed such a bill to fund the government through March 23, which also included a full year of defense spending.

Android users can do so by going to the Play Store, opening the main menu Settings, and then disabling the Auto-update feature. Turn the "Apps" one to off and, if you want to be doubly sure, "Updates" as well. Go to Snapchat's page on the Play Store, tap the menu button, and disable Auto-update for Snapchat.

Yes, you can go back to a previous version of Snapchat, as long as your Android device has been rooted. The simplest way is to uninstall the latest version of Snapchat from your device.

There are many comments and statements that bash the new Snapchat update, but the users will just have to get used and enjoy whatever the company made for them. Click the Applications tab, then select Apps in the iTunes sidebar, and find Snapchat (or the app you want reinstall in iTunes' Apps list).
