Social network Facebook’s rival to Snapchat, a new app called Slingshot, is now available to download around the world after debuting a week ago in the US.
Slingshot lets users send photos and 15-second videos to friends. The content disappears after being viewed although creators can auto-save what they create.
Unlike Snapchat, whose messages disappear after being viewed, users of Slingshot will have to reply with a message before they can see the intended original message.
The app is also available to non-Facebook users who can sign up with their mobile phone number.
