Samba video messaging app records receiver's reactions
Video messaging app Samba has been released, offering users 15 seconds to record a message, and in turn records the reaction of the viewer to broadcast back to the sender. Users record a short video message with their mobile device's camera, then send to a friend using a flicking gesture. Samba is not required to view the videos, though non-users of Samba cannot provide a reaction video in response to their received message. Currently available only for iOS devices, Samba is free.
