Snapchat’s Context Cards Simplify Our Lives a Little More

We rely on our phones for so much these days. Texting, calling, taking pics, using as a flashlight to find your phone before realizing it’s in your hand. And with all of those things come apps.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get app overload. In fact, I’m so particular about streamlining how many apps I have that I try to limit the amount I use to only what will fit on my homescreen.

That’s what appealed to me about Snapchat’s new Context Cards. They’re like a Maps, Yelp, Uber/Lift, and of course, Snapchat all in one. Take a look at the cards in action:

TripAdvisor and OpenTable are more offerings too. Of course, you still need to have the apps/accounts with those companies, but they don’t need to clutter your homescreen or send you swiping around to find them.

Additionally, you can check a place out out before committing to going.

Hanging out at the beach and feeling hungry? Open Snapchat, look at what’s in the area, and make a reservation if necessary. Then tap for an Uber and you’re there. Really, it’s just about being more seamless and simplified, which we can all use more of these days.

What do you think?
