Apps that are beautiful, functional, with good performance, and new to Windows Phone are what we love. On Windows Phone we’ve been known to have a handful of apps that meet that description. Which is why we’re happy to see another one about to join the Windows Phone Store. It’s called DualShot and it’s coming tomorrow.
Sometimes ideas that are simple catch like wildfire. DualShot is inspired by an iOS app called Frontback. DualShot for Windows Phone allows you to share what you’re up to with your friends in a fun and fast way. It uses the front and back camera to create an image of not only what you see in front of you, but yourself too.
That’s the basic idea of DualShot, but like always there’s a Windows Phone twist. It’s powered by the Nokia Imaging SDK to allow you to edit the image quickly and easily. At launch you’ll have 18 filters available, the ability to use the camera's flash, native sharing to Facebook and Twitter, share to installed apps and the ability set a DualShot photo as your Lockscreen image.
Earlier this summer, Windows Phone developer Sébastien Lachance (@archiecoder) and designer Vincent Gosselin (@vincentgosselin) fell in love with the iOS app Frontback. It’s an app that quickly became a hit and many celebrities jumped on board with it. They wanted to have that same experience, but on Windows Phone.
DualShot is launching sometime tomorrow, we’ll let you guys know when the link goes live. It’s an awesome little app so far and we can’t wait to see it improve with your feedback. We've been playing with the beta for a little over a week and really dig the app. It's a great way to share what you're doing with friends and family.
