"A New Way"

Share videos and pictures with friends

And here it is! Slingshot has finally arrived to Android and iOS devices yesterday, after a brief and unintentional release a few days ago.

The app, which aims to become the new Snapchat, allows you to record videos or shoot pictures and send them (sling them) to whoever you want, keeping in mind that the other person will only be able to view your file once they've sent something to you.

In addition, every time you receive something, you can either react and shoot yourself or simply swipe it away to delete it.

FACEBOOK is the developer of Slingshot, an app that is obviously well-designed and effective, although it lacks total originality.

Developer's original description available here
Slingshot lets you quickly share moments—little and big—with lots of people at once. It’s a new kind of feed where everyone is a creator.

Shoot a photo or video of what you’re up to and sling it to a bunch of friends. They won’t be able to see your shot until they sling something to you. Tap on a shot to react, or simply swipe it away.

•Keep up with friends: To unlock a feed of shots from friends, sling them a shot whenever you have something to share
•Send a quick reply: After unlocking a shot, respond with your reaction
•Enjoy it while it lasts: Once you swipe a shot away, it’ll no longer be viewable
•Get creative: Express yourself with captions and drawings
•Look when you want: View unlocked shots later if you’re busy

Download now and give it a, uh, shot.

Recently changed in this version

• See all unlocked shots grouped by person
• Squashed more bugs!

    Cool way to have fun with someone that you can't be with at the time or with multiple friends around the world. Great app lots of fun. Laugh so hard the first time it slung a photo off to someone
