A brilliantly polished app
Slingshot is an amazing personal photo and video sharing app. Despite what a lot of people say about it being Facebook's version if snapchat, I would disagree. Not only is the UI of slingshot cleaner and more interactive, the app itself offers more opportunities for social interaction than any other comparable app. By keeping things simple and doing away with direct messaging other than in the format of reaction threads, Slingshot allows users to engage with one another. Through this app I have managed to make a bunch of new friends and learn about places and cultures that I would never have experienced. I give Slingshot five stars and I greatly recommend it to anyone that is looking for new social experiences.
I have revised my review after more app use. It still feels like a strange dating app since the slings you send are to strangers. There is no way to gate your content and I got my first troll. I realized that the troll risk will continue to be high if you are female and not a supermodel. There are many nice people on there so I would stay if I had thicker skin! But I hated high school the first time around and I don't feel like going back.
Bring Back locked shots
When this app first came out I loved how you had to send a shot to see a shot, but since version 2.0 I started to dislike this app.
First You should allow someone to send a shot to any follower they choose, not just sling it for everyone to see. Some people want to sling something to a particular person.
Second you should bring back locked and unlocked shots, I loved the idea of send one to see one or just send one. That allows people to engage in the app and interact with there friends rather than just see what they are up to.
This app would be my fav if these features were brought back.
