"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.

Shoot a photo or video of what you’re up to and sling it to a bunch of friends. You can choose whether to make your shot locked or unlocked. If you sling a locked shot, friends won’t be able to see it until they sling something to you. Tap on a shot to react, or simply swipe it away.

• Keep up with friends: Sling a shot whenever you have something to share
• Send a quick reply: Respond to any shot 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 shots later if you’re busy

Download now and give it a, uh, shot.

Recently changed in this version

• Sling a shot to see a shot? Not necessarily! After shooting a photo or video, now you can choose whether to sling it as a locked or unlocked shot
• More bug fixes

    My impression of Slingshot is that is good but missing a lot of stuff. 1. delete people 2. invite people with a Facebook message 3. group creation 4. different fonts 5. emoji 6. add from galley 7. I'm not sure the account stays the same on different phone numbers. So, I like it but want more features... Cheers!

    First if you change your phone number your lose you username account. Second you can't invite friends even Facebook (same company). There other better options... Check Snapchat :)
