Frontback is a photo-sharing app with a twist. As an alternative to Instagram and other photo-based mobile social networks, Frontback is characterized by posting two pictures instead of one, letting you share images made from two photos using the front and back camera on your phone.
At its most basic level, Frontback involves taking a picture with your phone's front and back camera (hence the name), merging them into one photo which, in many cases, can result in some pretty clever or funny photos. The second camera is "triggered" automatically within a few seconds of taking the first photo, making the result more instantaneous. After creating a user account using your email or Facebook info, you can find friends, follow people, and post your own photos to Frontback. People's photos appear in a home stream, where you can like them by tapping on the heart in the center of the screen. As well as uploading images to Frontback itself, you can also post photos to Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as share them via email or SMS. You have the option to save the photo to your phone without publishing it to a social network, which is a nice additional feature.
Shoot and share
Using Frontback is really easy, with menus that are easy to navigate and a user-friendly process for taking and uploading photos to Frontback and other social networks. If you don't like the way one of the photos turned out, you can easily tap on the image and retake the photo. You also have the option of changing the camera's perspective, meaning you can take both photos using your front or back camera. To change perspective, just swipe your finger across the half of the screen you want to change. You can also change the order of the photos from top to bottom by swiping up or down across both images. Other than that, there aren't any advanced options that let you edit, import, or filter images.
Making things more exciting
Frontback is an alternative to Instagram and Tumblr which gives you a bit more room for creativity. The dynamic of having two photographs and stitching them together gives the opportunity for a lot of interesting photos. Even further, the ability to immediately share pictures on various social networks gives more freedom and possibility for using the app in conjunction with your existing online social environments.
