You may have heard of an App called Frontback that had the idea of taking pictures using both the front and back cameras on your smartphone at the exact same time. The reasoning behind this was that you could share your facial expressions using the back camera while you were taking pictures using the front. While this wasn't an App that was going to change the world, they did manage to secure almost $4 Million dollars in investment money which they've managed to burn through and have now announced they are closing the doors and stopping their service. I don't think many people will be attending the funeral for the Frontback App, I just am impressed that they burned $4 Million bucks trying to keep the App going... The Verge has the full story.
Frontback started with a great idea: why not make a photo app that takes a snap from your phone's front and back cameras at the same time? That way you can share what's happening and your reaction. But great ideas aren't enough, and despite attracting two million users over two years in operation, Frontback is shutting down. The app's goal was to "capture a moment," says founder Fredd della Faille in a blog post announcing the news. "This was a fresh idea and truly the heart of our vision, a concept that’s seeing massive adoption today. Unfortunately, Frontback is not the winner."
