Delete your Snapchat app

First, try deleting your Snapchat app and then downloading it again.  After downloading the app, restart your device.  I got so frustrated once that I decided to restore factory setting on my mobile device.  Sadly, that didn't fix Snapchat.  Sometimes, the problems you're experiencing are due to issues on the company's end.
