Now the cats will have their day though as Snapchat has introduced lenses and filters so you can decorate your pet with hats, glasses and slices of bread. It's the latest effort from Snapchat to get more users on the app as numbers of active users continues to drop. Its number of daily active users dropped by three million to 188 million between April and June. It was the first time the company had reported a drop in daily active users. Snapchat announced the update on Twitter with the caption, “Lenses.

Almost half of all British adults have broken their mobile phone screen, a study has found. The research, which polled 2,000 mobile phone users, also revealed one in five managed to damage their screen within the first MONTH of owning it. Of these unfortunate phone users, one fifth have damaged their device when trying to take a selfie, and one in four managed to crack their screens on a night out. A further one in 10 have been unfortunate enough to drop their phone down the toilet, while the same percentage accidentally sat on their mobile while it was in their back pocket.
