Snapchat's latest app redesign, aimed at broadening the appeal of the youth-oriented social network, sparked a backlash from many users complaining about the abrupt overhaul of their preferred service. Now if say, your grandma, wants to check out what's happening downtown she can fire up the ol' desktop, head to map.snapchat.com and watch app user's uploaded snaps.
"Many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has in fact made many features more hard", the petition at change.org states.

Some users were glad to get the Snap and said it would be the only Valentine's wish they'd get this year. These are essentially users with verified accounts, something that Snapchat until now has largely reserved for celebrities. Users can't find what they're looking for and although the update was created to make the app easier to navigate, users complain that it achieved quite the contrary.
