"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

• Swipe the camera to flip between selfie and frontie
• Improved how you can find friends
• Squashed some bugs, squashed 'em real good

Be sure to follow the awesome creatives in the Explore section of the People tab!

    Honestly, this doesnt compete with snapchat, no-one wants to use it... the UI is awful!!!!

    OK if I wanted to post pics I would use like Instagram or something but this app is for pics to be sent to certain people not everyone.
