Add groups to Snapchat!

Add Groups to Snapchat!

Favorites, friend lists, and groups make contact easier. The 1990s had quick dial on cell phones, smartphones have favorites, and grouping has been around on the internet since forever. Why don’t the folks at Snapchat add the feature!

Well, groups are kind of already in Snapchat.

Here are the steps to put friends in groups:

  1. Open Snapchat
  2. Swipe right to display “My Friends”
  3. Tap a name in “My Friends”
  4. Tap the settings icon to the right of the name
  5. Add a name for the group
  6. Search for or scroll to group

P.S. If you want a favorites group of your own, I recommend using “aaa” at the start of names. Numbers and symbols display at the bottom of the contacts list… Which could be clever if you want to hide your favorites!

Andy’s Mix: September 2013

Because sharing music is fun.

As hinted at in my radio post, I avidly seek new music. I really enjoy selecting and arranging music and put together a mix every few months. They’re more like track listings, similar to what a DJ might do on a radio show. Many people I know dig them, so…

Here’s the latest from September 2013.

Total time: 1 hr 16 min.

I couldn’t find all the songs on YouTube and I couldn’t find all the songs on Soundcloud, so the playlists on those two networks are incomplete. The YouTube list is missing the Mateo Senolia (#12) and Freddie Scott (#16) tracks. Soundcloud is missing Sophie Zelmani’s (#10).
