Facebook’s photo messaging app Slingshot updated w/ easier reactions, My People tab, more
The new version allows users to reply with a reaction to photos without having to first reply with another photo. The launch version structure was a bit more convoluted as it required you to respond with a new photo as well. The new version allows you to respond with a photo, video, or just text.
The update also allows you to connect with your contacts and Facebook friends with inviting more people to use the app, and a new My People section shows you other Slingshot users. The update also features the following under-the-hood improvements:
• Shoot crisp, clear videos even faster than before • Improved reliability for sign-up confirmation codes • Plus, a bunch of bug fixes and other tweaks to keep things running smoothly
In addition to launching Slingshot earlier this month, Facebook-owned Instagram released a quick-photo messaging app called Bolt in a select few countries earlier this week.
The latest version of Slingshot is rolling out now in the App Store.
