It seems as though the camera aspect of our smartphones has become more popular. We loved the idea of a camera on our smartphones, but with social media and sharing moments of our lives-the camera has become more important. With such a popular piece of hardware that is (for the most part) included with our smartphones; it is no wonder why apps utilizing the camera have become more popular. One such app is called Frontback, and it is finally available on Android devices.
So the use of the word “finally” is loose, since the app is about eight months old. Still, Frontback has been available on iOS for those eight months. During that time it has gained over 1 million downloads. This growth was slow in the beginning, though in the last couple of months downloads have doubled. Frontback hopes that with an Android version they will see a huge boost in downloads. However Android users expect a bit more from their apps than iOS users. Naturally, Frontback has added some a new feature just for Android-for now.
Firstly, you may not have heard of Frontback, so lets cover what it did on iOS. You may have guessed from the name, that the app uses both the front and back facing camera- see what they did there? Yes, this is much like dual capture mode that we are already used to seeing. The app just seems to have a different way of providing the finished product. The front picture ontop and the back picture on bottom. Then you can share across all your social media, easily adding hastags and short descriptions. That’s it, but for Android users they have added a feature.
The new feature is an offline mode. This will allow you to take a picture using their app, and then save it to share later. Could come in handy sometimes, and will be a feature going to iOS at some point down the line.
