For instance, the puking rainbow lens is a favorite among Snapchat users.Just apply it to your face, then open your mouth and watch a carnival of color pour out.Hidden from plain view, you have to know how to access them to use them.Take an image, then swipe left or right while on the camera screen and you’ll see a filter slide over across it.Instead of left- or right-hand anchored menus, Snapchat has users swipe to access other elements of the service.For instance, from the camera, swipe to the right and the chat screen will appear, swipe down and your account preferences will drop in, and swipe left to view other users’ snaps.The philosophy behind this unconventional landing place is that chats all begin with the conversation, and in Snapchat, images do the talking.That makes even more sense when you think of how the app treats its photos and videos ephemerally.
You could also spend hours selecting funds for your 401(k).
However you tweak it, once you take a photo or video, the app shows your work, and new options pop into the frame.
At the top right, you’ll see a sticker icon, which yields a bunch of emoji-like graphics you can use to gussy up your image. If you’re not in love with the default sans serif font in a gray bar across your photos, tap the text icon again, and you get more options.
From dogs wearing glasses to carnival mirror-type contortions, there’s always something new to see.
And through some slick promotions, the app frequently cycles in new lenses to play with based on popular movies and shows.
