Alors que le 23 juillet la startup Frontback indiquait que malgré 2 millions d’utilisateurs elle fermerait les portes de son application le 15 août, nous venons d’apprendre que le service a trouvé un accord avec un nouveau partenaire afin de continuer à faire vivre Frontback.

Voici ainsi ce qu’a publié sur son site l’équipe fondatrice :

We recently announced a bad news to our community, and you won’t believe what happened next.

But first we want to thank you all for your messages, we’ve got more than thousands from all over the World, you made us cry and smile. You are all very special and we love reading your words.

But what happened? It’s simple, Frontback stays open!

We just signed an agreement with a partner who believes as much as we do that there’s something incredible with Frontback. This partner is fully committed to make Frontback an even better place to share your moments, we were impressed by how much they understand the platform and we will help the new team to make the transition as smooth as possible.

In our discussions they came up with fresh ideas for the products, and now that we are here we would love to ask you: How to make Frontback better? Please share with us all your suggestions, the new team is listening to you!

#Dontstopthefrontback

Thank you for everything,
— Team Frontback

L’identité du partenaire qui a décidé de soutenir Frontback n’a pas encore été dévoilée, mais Frédéric della Faille, fondateur de Frontback, indique que ce dernier se présentera au moment opportun.

Pour rappel, Frontback est une application qui permet de réaliser de manière simultanée un diptyque composé d’une photo et d’un selfie pour capturer la réaction du photographe.
