Registration takes place via the SIM phone number installed on your phone – there is no need to create a login linked to your email.

Boltwill be available soon for Android and iOS devices in the countries mentioned above, but not to exclude an imminent launch also in Europe and the United States. The dates for the international release on a large scale, however, are still a mystery. As a mystery if there really was a need for it, since the operation of the application is very similar to Slingshot, the other retractable photo app produced by Facebook.
