If you are still holding on to the glory days of Vine, even after Instagram tried its best to kill it by introducing its own video service, you’ll be happy to hear about the latest update. Released this afternoon to Google Play, the new version of Vine includes channels (15 of them to be precise), “revining” of favorite posts, a fast capture widget, new capture tools (focus, grid, and ghost), and more.
Go get it! (Assuming it’s not a staged rollout.) (more…)
Vine for Android is getting a major update today, full of amazing new features that users have been clamoring for since it first launched earlier this month. Oh wait, most of these things should have been there since day one. I forgot that their development team rushed to get this app out of the door as quickly as possible and might have skipped a few things along the way. (more…)
Today at Facebook’s small press event, Mark Zuckerburg and Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom announced Instagram with video. Yep, Instagram will now have video capabilities. Using the same app that everyone already has installed, users can record up to 15 seconds with the ability to add separate clips, just like Vine and Cinemagram. In addition, users can choose from 13 custom video filters for their clips. (more…)

Nevertheless, it is Vine and people will continue to use it, so we wanted to make sure you knew of another issue that seems to be plaguing frequent Viners. (more…)
Vine, Twitter’s popular short-clip video sharing service that was previously only on iOS, will be available on Android today. For those not familiar, Vine allows you to record 6 seconds of video (with sound) and then share it with the world, much like you do a Tweet. It becomes interesting in the idea that you can pause and continue recording simply by touching and releasing your finger to and from the screen. Current Vine users have created all sorts of 6-second stop motion clips that are highly entertaining, many of which continuously loop. (more…)
Finally, we have a time frame for the arrival of Vine for Android. According to the founders of Vine, the short video (GIF-like) application that has become a major success on iOS, is definitely making its way to Android.
