Life’s more fun when you live in the moment 🙂 Happy Snapping!

I haven’t had any issues with snapchat prior to this recent snapchat and iOS update. I’m not sure if this was the perfect storm to creat issues but it’s getting annoying. Prior to the update, my screen would freeze when initiating a snap but my phone would be able to catch the moment and the snapchat video would playback the video with no issues. Currently, the same thing will happen but instead of playing the video back with no issues; the app will only play a second of the video, freeze for the remaining nine second, play the one second again, freeze, etc. Additionally, my videos do not have any sound. At first, I assumed that I accidentally pressed the mute button but I came to realize that the mute button was not in the on position. I’ve also check my phone and ringer volume… still no sound. I turned off my phone and turned it back on again which helped for one snapchat video but the glitch returned after I reentered the application. I am currently reinstalling the application to see if that would rid me from these irritating glitches. Nonetheless, this is annoying and needs to be fixed ASAP!

One of my favorite features of Snapchat is the memories in which all the pictures you chose to save, get stored on their server. That way if anything happens to your phone, you don’t lose everything. My phone was stolen in China and since I got the 128GB iPhone 7, I never used iCloud because I thought that could never happen. I got the iPhone 7 Plus when I got back and just today, a software update caused my entire phone to clear! The last backup was 2 months ago because even though it’s only $1 a month for extra storage, I refused to pay based in principle. The phone I have had 256 GB of storage now, I would need to pay more for iCloud just to keep saving more photos after 50 GB. Long story short, it is thanks to Snapchat memories that I still have a bunch of pictures of family and friends that I cherish, and were not sucked into the completely unpredictable but incredibly deadly Apple software bugs. Thank you Snapchat.
Screenshot and sending stories
I have been loving the recent snapchat updates.
However, what I have recently found is that now whenever I am reading my subscriptions such as Buzzfeed or People, whenever I read an article and I get to a part that I want to press and hold to send to someone, when I hit send and go back to the article, it brings me back to the beginning. Before, it would bring me back to where I left off. I don’t know if this is an issue that can be fixed, but it could be worth looking into! It definitely gets bothersome, especially if I’m reading an article such as “100 notes I took while watching the Titanic” and I screenshot number 58…then having to scroll all the way back to where I left off ?
