    Hi Everyone!

    Anybody having this problem in snapchat? (And in snapchat Only!)

    My device only has a front facing camera.

    When I take a picture using the "camera" app or even using instragram, the image that I see on the screen BEFORE the picture is taken is a mirror, but AFTER the photo is taken, it is saved PROPERLY, like a proper photo should be.

    However using snapchat (latest v9.x.x) The image that I see on the screen is mirrored AS WELL AS the saved image. This is NOT how a picture should be taken. Ex. Taking a picture of a book cover shows the writing BACKWARDS. Improper!

    Is anybody else experiencing this? Does anybody have any insight into making snapchat take pictures properly? I am using the newest version of snapchat. As is, this is useless. I am completely stuck.

    Thank you everyone.

    Try going to settings, applications, all apps, find the SnapChat app and clear the data. That will completely reset the app and might fix the issue. If not you might need to email the developer about the issue to see if it is a known issue.

    This annoys me too. It's not only Snapchat, but Instagram as well. It's just weird. A selfie that's mirrored just doesn't look right. Ya know?
