Snapchat Gets a Redesign?!

This post is inspired by the article Snapchat is testing a big new redesign on The Verge.

The classic snapchat design that we know and love (to varying degrees) might be getting a revamp if the market test of their redesign goes well!

One of the most noticeable changes will be the addition of two more screens to its original three. As a result, Snapchat will also be adding a navigation bar rather than making users swipe through each of the five screens. This means that the snap map will have its own screen rather than being a part of the camera screen and a separate page will be added for all of Snap’s original shows.

I use Snapchat more than any other app. To me, the idea of a navigation bar is super appealing to me because I hate the extra steps it takes to move from screen to screen. The navigation bar will allow me to skip over the middle screens and get to what I want faster.

However, I would never watch a Snapchat show. The stories I do watch always lag a lot and it gets frustrating waiting for the app to show you its content. Another major issue that I have with it is how often it crashes. I feel like watching a whole show on Snapchat would be like signing up to watch the circle of death for an hour.

What are your thoughts on these changes? Comment below!

  1. I’m very excited for this redesign! I especially like the addition of the search bar. I also like that there is less swiping all around the app to try to find things. I don’t know if I would watch a Snapchat show, but I think it’s worth a try. Maybe they’ll make something awesome! -Daphne
