Snapchat is a powerful photo sharing app of this time. It is being more popular day by day, in
this year its total users are 27 million, which was 11 million in the previous year. Facebook even
tried to buy snapchat app $3 billion, as various report say. But the snapchat authority does not
pay any heed to this proposal; even snapchat app has no revenue. Facebook is producing a
mobile messaging app, named Slingshot. Perhaps the Facebook authority tries to get the
snapchat users by their new mobile app. Those two apps are apparently similar, though there are
some certain comparisons. The authority released the app accidentally, last week. Some
Facebook users were able to get some glimpses before its removal from the store. The app is
available for the United States users from Tuesday. The users can use this app both in Android
