"A New Way"

Reviewed by / Jun 18, 2014

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 is the best way to share life as it happens. Filter, draw and caption fullscreen photos and record looping videos, then sling them to your followers.

• Quickly shoot and share moments throughout your day
• Get creative with filters, drawings and emojis
• Shots stick around for 24 hours or until they’re swiped away
• Reply to any shot with a private photo or video reaction
• Connect with friends and follow awesome people around the world
• Turn on instant notifications to never miss a moment from your favorite people
• Relive your day and share your favorite shots out to other apps

Recently changed in this version

Introducing Explore — Swipe through shots from popular people around the world! It's a great way to discover funny, inspiring and creative people to follow.

We also made it easier to follow people while viewing their shots and fixed a ton of bugs.

    Really fun "reacting" to random people all over the world. Seen some really cool things and some really boring lame things.

    Having aids would be more fun than this app. Is this a company Facebook created or purchased? Either way, this app is terrible and nobody besides fb employees will use it. Ever. The rest of us will stick to Instagram and Snapchat.

    Used it for some time. Then I got some shots from slingshot crew and I couldn't see their shots and they won't go. Please fix it.I even tried uninstalling and all the shit.
