Snapchat revamp gets full-scale UK rollout
Snapchat has begun a full-scale rollout of the redesigned version of its app to UK-based users. The revamp is intended to separate social interactions with friends from third-party content. The new design comes as Snap stocks soared by nearly 50% on Wednesday afternoon - the day after it announced strong fourth-quarter results. But the redesign has not gone down well with users, with up to 83% of reviews on the App Store being negative.
Changes to the app's Discover feature will make it easier for users to find content from publishers, according to Snap. A personalised news feed and an auto-advance feature that takes viewers from one story directly to the next are also part of the redesign. Other updates include a Friends Page that brings Stories, Bitmojis and Chats - all different mediums for peer-to-peer communication in the app - together into one view.
A Snapchat spokesman 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." The social app now has 187 million daily users, after adding 8.9 million at the end of 2017. Revenue was up as well, reaching $287.5m (£207m) in the past quarter - a 72% year-on-year increase. The company's revenue-sharing advertising has also seen a big jump.
Snap pays publishers creating content for Discover a portion of the ad revenue it makes from their media. It paid publishers more than $100m (£72.05m) in 2017, a $42m (£30.26m) increase from 2016. And the number of media partners working with the company has grown fivefold in the past three years, according to Snap.
This week's featured photo is My cat seen in Infrared light by @drakanstyr. Comments on this picture included: "mystical atmosphere", "just purr-fect" and "Amazing photo! Gorgeous cat". It is a very striking image and it's great to see the results that different kinds of filters and lighting can achieve, they can produce some stunning results as this week's featured photo demonstrates. Nice picture drakanstyr!
Apple’s Abnormal 2018
Apple’s step into 2018 hasn’t exactly been a graceful one. If anything, it has tripped over New Year's Eve after a party (The iPhone X) and been flung into a whole world of issues.
It started 2018 in the middle of multiple lawsuits after they admitted to slowing down old phones. However, yet again Apple have found themselves in hot water (Please DON’T put your Apple product in any form of liquid, hot or cold). This past week, The Verge reported that Apple, but on the hardware front this time.
It has been reported that iPhone 7s can have issues with connecting to cellular, both on and off roaming, and so Apple is offering repairs for any affected phones.
Hopefully, Apple can get back on its feet with the upcoming HomePod, which we will be covering very soon!

Just perplexed.... "gifgaff money" was rebranded to "giffgaff gameplan" but a "giffgaff money" FB page was just created?
Speaking about inconsistency! @juan_p
With the travel FB now live and not a sub-group in the forum; is there a different strategy for FB and another for the forums or am I missing something ?
