Most messaging and photo sharing apps are all about communicating faster. Send a message to all of your friends at once! Check the photo out now before it dispears! Forget 3 minutes – a 15 second video is where its at.
Then along comes Slingshot, the second app from the Facebook Creative Labs. Send your friend a photo message and he can. . . can’t. . . see it. . . all he gets is a pixelated blur. In order to reveal the true image, the receiver must send a message back to the sender.
I think they should have called it Volleyball because this back and forth can go on and on until someone drops the ball and gives up. (If you choose to swipe the shot away, it’s gone forever.)
