Back in June, Facebook released a new Snapchat competitor called Slingshot. The application allows you to sling photos and videos to friends, who will then be able to see the media only one time before it's gone forever. Facebook just updated the application on Tuesday, bringing the application up to version 1.2.

In the new update, Facebook has made improvements to the application's functionality. For one, users will now be able to see all of their unlocked Slingshots grouped on a per-person basis. Also, to make things a little easier on the user, Facebook has made it so that you can tap on any of your incoming notifications ot get directly to any of your Slingshots.

Slingshot has also empowered users with the ability to invite their friends to use Slingshot with them you can send invites over most of your favorite social networks, as well as by text message, iMessage, or e-mail.

A number of bugs have also been fixed in this update to make the application more reliable and zippy. Existing users of the Slingshot application for iOS will find this update under the Updates tab in the App Store application.
