About a week ago, Facebook launched Slingshot. The app is meant to be a competitor to Snapchat where users send each other photos, but the main difference is that with Slingshot, users are required to send a photo back to the sender in order to view the photo that was originally sent to them.
We guess this encourages reciprocity unlike Snapchat where the other party does not have to say or do anything at all. That being said, Slingshot was originally launched as an exclusive in the US, but the good news is that according to the Slingshot blog, they have announced that the app will now be open to international users to download.
According to the developers, “Since we launched last week, we’ve heard from lots of people around the world who are excited to give Slingshot a try. Starting today, we’re expanding our initial launch and making Slingshot available internationally!”
The app will be available on both iOS and Android and will be free to download, so if you’re not in the US and you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, then head on over to either the iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store for the download.
