Snapchat's latest update has one useful feature, two just for fun

US-IT-LIFESTYLE-IPO-SNAP-UNICORNS

Snapchat is upping their game yet again. They have unrolled three new features that are pretty nifty. 

First is the ability to share links with friends in Snaps. By tapping the new paperclip icon in the vertical toolkit, you can share a website link that your pals can swipe up to view inside the app. Then there's backdrops for Snaps, to access them you tap the scissors icon in the vertical toolkit and look for the new backdrop icon. 

Next highlight the figures or area you want to stand out from the backdrop, then select a pattern or graphic to place in the background. Snapchat will introduce a new batch of backdrops every day. 

Lastly Snapchat is bringing voice filters to all. Previously sequestered to Lenses, you first record a Snap, then select the speaker icon on the bottom of the screen and pick from a smattering of sound effects.

Mom says United forced her to fly with son on lap for three hours

Shaking my head at you United....

This round of controversy comes after they forced a mom to hold her toddler son in her lap after they sold his seat. Hawaii middle school teacher Shirley Yamauchi was bound for a teacher's conference in Boston last week with her 27-month-old son, whose ticket she said cost as much as her. In total the tickets were nearly $1,000. Before taking off to Boston, a man with the same seat number as her son’s came up. Yamauchi had two options, get a refund for her son’s flight and get booted off or sit him on her lap, which she did. 

"I was concerned for his safety, I had to attempt to put his seatbelt over him for the two of us, and it was very difficult. … He's so big, I couldn't put down the folding table. I put the drinks on my armrest. I knocked down the drinks with my elbow." Yamauchi said. 

The airline issued an apology 5 days later.
