Sending photos and video with Slingshot (pictures)
Take a look inside Facebook's new messaging app.
This is Slingshot
Facebook's new social messaging app Slingshot has a simple premise--take a photo or video and quickly share it with your friends. But the app has a twist in that you must first share a photo between you can see what your friends have sent you.
The app's main screen is the camera viewfinder. There are controls at the bottom to turn on flash, switch between the front and back cameras, and a shutter to capture an image. You can also record video by holding down the shutter button.
When you're done capturing a photo, you can add text or draw on it with your finger.
