On Monday evening a temporary hang-up with the app drove enough users to make #Snapchatdown a trending hashtag on Twitter, where users recounted their efforts to get the app to load. Combined, that gave the app an overall ranking of #5 for the quarter, the report noted. He said over 60% of Daily Active Users create Snaps with its camera every day. The company also dropped out of the top 10 most-downloaded apps on Apple's App Store this quarter, TechCrunch recently reported. The company has spent over $1.3 billion on research and development through the first three quarters of the year, up 1000% from the $118 million it had spent over the same period last year.

The average revenue per user (ARPU) came in at $1.17, while analysts were calling for ARPU of $1.30.

Spiegel said that there was a "strong likelihood" that the redesign would cause short-term disruptions to the company's business. "We're willing to take that risk for what we believe are substantial long-term benefits to our business". Instagram has shamelessly copied many Snap features using a more straight-forward interface, most notably the Stories feature that lets users share a collection of photos and videos that expire within 24 hours.

CEO Evan Spiegel admitted the company "grew our Daily Active Users at a lower rate than we would have liked". Then Snapchat rebranded as Snap Inc and became a self-described camera company with the rollout of digital googles it called Spectacles. "We will be hard at work delivering on our priorities: user growth, content, and augmented reality".
