Facebook's “Slingshot” App Takes Aim at Snapchat

The release of Facebook's "Slingshot," a competitor to Snapchat is now available on app stores, NBC News reported. Slingshot lets users "sling" photos and videos called “moments” to other users, according to a blog post announcing the app on Tuesday. Recipients can either either swipe a message away to delete it, or respond by slinging back their own "moment." Where this new app differs from Snapchat is that users can see the messages only if they send something back first.
