Because only iPhone thots care about Snapchat

Using the APIs instead of screenshotting the view finder would be too much work for a multi billion dollar company

>>66335903
this. snapchat is even lazier than a pajeet

>instead of screenshotting the view finder
holy shit is that really how it works?
>>
>>66336234
Yes.
>>
>>66335903
Knowing Android, the API is probably broken and requires retries and workarounds for every step. It has to be one of the shittiest software products in existence.
>>
>>66335165
this and those who use snapchat couldn't tell the difference anyway.
>>
>>66335903
I wish more camera apps did this.

If you're on android just learn to use manual camera controls to take a non-shit picture.
>>
>>66336415
Snapchat uses the camera API on some phones. They would need to develop for dozens/hundreds of different devices if they did it differently.
>>
>>66336282
>implying you need to have autism in order to tell there's a difference between shitty Snapchat pictures and the ones taken through the camera app
you're not that special
>>
>>66336272
If that were true, then how come every other app that uses the camera works just fine?

don't you understand? the only reason anyone works at snap is to watch underage porn. they don't have time to develop apps!

They probably don't

i'm not saying you need autism in order to tell the difference. i'm saying most people don't care unless you point out the differences.

The fuck does an OS have to do with the deficiencies of picture-capture hardware in that particular manufacturer's brand?
Are you retarded?
>>
>>66339807
>>66336257
>>
>>66339826
So Snapchat devs are in other words too retarded to create a base-code which auto-detects the system on which it is installed and communicate with the userbase on some forum or something to co-develop plug-ins for each and every device so it can then be just reviewed by Snapchat and implemented within the base-code listing for detection and connection.
Even gaymershits like Bethesda with all their incompetence and shit coding skills manage to utilize the modding community, but Snapchat doesn't know how to utilize its vastly larger userbase. These people need to sack their management and replace it.
>>
>>66339887
considering that they shut down any user-created applications that help add utility to the app, I doubt people would be willing to create for it.
>>
>>66336257
And this is why Android development will always be a shitfest.
>>
>>66340188
People deal with multiple pieces of hardware in more areas than Android genius.
>>
I've never touched Android development, but is Android's camera API really that broken? I've never heard of any apps besides Snapchat having an issue just using the camera as it was meant to be used, except for maybe needing workarounds when dealing with $10 chink phones.
>>
>>66335156
Because selfies don't matter.
Phones never needed cameras.
Google actually strives for functionality, unlike Apple.
>>
>>66337376
I don't get it. Aren't there trillions of working camera apps made by pajeets available on Android? With histograms, real time effects and shit. Look at B612. What makes Snapchat special enough that their employees can't do that?
>>
>>66337376
Bullshit https://developer.android.com/reference/android/hardware/camera2/package-summary

you have no idea what you are talking about and you know it

Is that why the pixel is one of the only devices running Android that Snapchat actually works right for?

>one of the only devices
Do you mean it's the only?
Or do you mean it's one of the few?
"One of the only" doesn't parse in English.
>>
>>66337401
Libraries that abstract away retrying, etc.
>>
>>66336298
On the iPhone the camera app constantly writes images to a ring buffer, so that when you press the button there is no delay.

Now I get why people think Android is worse. It's because some companies ruin the experience on purpose. Too bad I already don't use that application so I could stop using it because of this.

>>66340188
There's about 0% chance this happened because it would be too difficult to do right. They just hate Android irrationally because Android is an alternative for LGBT phone and there shouldn't be any.
>>
Guys, is LineageOS good? Can you still use the Google store?
>>
>>66336257
Signal is better anyway.
>>
>>66341785
there are like 30 different android api versions out there
>>
>>66336415
And a valuation of $22 BILLION
>>
>>66336234
isn't this common knowledge? I've known this for couple years now and didn't think it was relevant information to care about. Didn't think there were idiots on /g/ not to know this.
>>
>>66336257
so this.... is the power.... of diversity.... whoah
>>
But...

What if they do it on purpose? Not a mistake, just letting everyone knows who's got an iPhone and who's got an Android. It's actually just more thing to brag about, didn't you see Tiffany's snapchats are much better now out of nowhere? iPhone. See what I mean?
>>
>>66343614
yes and yes, although instead of that, just use the Yalp store
>>
>>66336257
don't know where that text is from but I've read a different motivation which has to do with speed. Some phones, specially older ones, will take a few seconds to focus and take the picture and snapchat wanted it to be instant on all phones. it's pretty dumb regardless of what their motivation is.

>>66337373
what "manual camera controls"? There are none in snapchat beyond the button to "take a picture" (save the viewfinnder). you can't send stored pictures as snaps either. But if you open a chat dialog in snapchat then you can send stored pictures as a chat attachment so that's a way around it.

>>66337376
bullshit. there's a LOT of third party camera applications that work just fine on all android phones. quite a few are open source free software. none of them do anything special for each and every phone.

>>66339887
>base-code which auto-detects the system
you fell for it. they wouldn't have to auto-detect anything, they could just use the normal api's every sane camera application uses.
>>
>>66336257
>accounting for different screen size is hard
are they hard coding resolutions and ratios or something?
>>
>>66335156
Secrets that people don't know. Apple pays facebook and other companies so their apps have better quality in frontal camera. Only apple can have HD streaming in Instagram, periscope, etc.

Signal is not even similar except that it's a platform to send messages. Even facebook is closer to snapchat now with the stories feature and everything
>>
>>66344408
Meh, battery life while using the camera and some ram I guess. Seems worth it.
