Frontback is a fantastic iOS app when you want to capture what’s happening on both sides of your iPhone. Sharing photos to social networks such as Twitter and Instagram is a breeze, but as a self-contained community it’s been light on features so far.

Today’s update adds a new top-level screen to profile pages, with a circular photo, account handle, full name and biography. It’s not the best use of space, but it maintains the half-and-half design language that makes Frontback unique. You can then swipe to view their uploaded photos, as before.


The profile headers also show two tabs so that, for the first time, others users can see your followers and following lists. Previously, it was possible to see this information for your own account using the ‘Friends’ option in the side bar, but that’s now been removed because of the redesigned profile pages. It’s a welcome improvement, giving everyone on Frontback the ability to see who someone is stalking and who they are being stalked by.

If that sounds a bit much, Frontback also has a block option now. You can access it from a user’s profile page by tapping the settings icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
