Slingshot by Facebook

Remember Poke that little gesture that you used to use or still use on Facebook to annoy the heck out of your friends it got an App of its own a while back on Apple’s iTunes store to compete with Snapchat which Facebook wanted to buy a while back but couldn’t buy because it wasn’t up for sale unlike WhatsApp.

That App (Poke) got yanked off the store due to lack of usage or some other stuff but then at the moment it’s back with a twist or two firstly it’s on how you use it and the name. Initially with Poke like they do with Snapchat you would have to send a friend a picture and the person you sent it to would then view it and after a couple of seconds that picture would vanish from the App now with Slingshot what happens is that you send a picture and then the receiver will have to send you a picture back before they can be able to see what you have sent them and that for me makes it a nice app or something you should consider checking out in the near future some other features that are in Application is that you can be able to Draw on real pictures before you send them to your friends and some other stuff so please get to check the application when it gets available in your respective country and App Store like Play Store on Android or iTunes on Apple’s iPhone because unlike poke it’s on both Operating Systems but at the moment it’s not available in South Africa so I’m just commenting and sharing on what I’ve seen on their website sling.me.

I’m having trouble creating the link make sure to check out-out and the pictures on bellow and by the way, I haven’t used Snapshot, yes I have downloaded it but just like much social application I tried I do not have friends there so if you have used both applications be kind and share your thoughts.
