• Slingshot App By Facebook Reportedly To Be Released Tomorrow



    According to a source, long awaited Snapchat competitor, Slingshot, will be released by Facebook tomorrow. The app was available for a very brief time in certain international App Stores last week and then it just disappeared. The new app by Facebook lets users send videos or photos with texts or drawings to another person on the standalone iPhone app. However, recipients of the photos or videos will not be able to view it unless a response is sent back.

    According to the app description that was available when briefly released last week, upon viewing incoming photos or videos, an automatic photo response can be sent out on your behalf. Users will be able to download the Facebook app for free on the App Store when launched. Slingshot, is the second attempt made by Facebook as Snapchatís competitor after the first failed attempt with the Poke app. The Poke app was released back in 2012 but has since been taken off the app store in May. However, the source has also noted that Facebook may postpone the launch date of Slingshot if any last minute issues arise.

      Actually, there's this awesome app called dumbstruck, and it's hilarious. It records your reaction to whatever you're viewing, and sends it back automatically. I absolutely love it and think Snapchat should have been this way from the beginning. If THAT's how this Slingshot app is going to be, then I can't wait!

      How about you download it and try it first. You all seem to come on these forums and put down anything and everything new, not Apple and things that think outside of the box. I'd be happy to use these forums along side of you if I didn't hear apps were lame or useless, tweaks are lame and useless and the top tweaks of the week are lame and useless.

      To me, your opinion is lame and useless.
