Does Snapchat Have an Exclusive Deal with Apple; Shunning Android?

With the latest Snapchat update in September 2015 one must wonder if Snapchat has an exclusive deal with Apple to sell more iPhone units. New iPhone units at that! There have been many issues with Snapchat and iPhone 4 and 4s models. We are now learning that the latest Snapchat selfie filters are not available on Android model phones. That means no matter what Android operating system you are using the latest Snapchat features are unavailable.

Snapchat hired former Apple executive and head of iOS Scott Forstall to be an advisor. One would think they guy that once ran the Apple iOS division could quickly come up with a fix for the broken iPhone 4 and 4s issue, right?

Some of my business friends have wondered if Snapchat and Apple have an exclusive deal. Can you imagine how much Apple could be paying Snapchat to get users on the iPhone. Personally, I even considered getting the latest iPhone, the 6s, because it might be the only phone that gets the latest Snapchat features.

What do you think? Do you think the fix is in? Is this fair to Android and older model iPhone users?

[…] If you are trying to figure out how to vomit or puke an animated stream of rainbow on the new updated Snapchat app for Android and the app is not cooperating, you are not alone. The app is not working correctly for Android. Some people even think there is a Snapchat conspiracy. […]

Hands down, it’s not rocket science to understand that Apple Inc. paid Snapchat some money or something to give their iPhone’s the reputation of being the best to function on the stupid app. Snapchat sold out to Apple, it’s a shame really.

I’m really disappointed that all of theSC filters only work on iPhone and only the newer iPhones at that.we need a software developer to give all the Snapchat features on Android phones. I doubt I’ll ever buy an iPhone just for Snapchat.
