Vine comes for Android users
Vine for Android is coming soon. The developers have officially confirmed that the Android version of the app is on works. The Vine was introduced on iOS back in January, and has reached is #1 in the iTunes store. For those of you unaware, Vine is an app allowing you to create short 6 second video clips and you can pause the video as many times as you like during the recording process. The idea of the developers is to give a short peek into someone’s daily life. The short video files can be easily shared to Facebook and Twitter.
Meanwhile, if your device runs Android you can try an app called Vine viewer. It is disappointing because you can only watch videos and you are not able to make. Actually, an alternative does exist. The app is called Cinemagram, but unfortunately it is not fully integrated with Twitter. While Vine is awaiting approval, the company is focused on ensuring painless user experience. One of the problem areas said to be resolved was the difficulties people experienced gauging the time left. The team has discovered that the final moments of most of the videos are actually cut- short. To resolve the problem Vine let users to continue recording up to a half second after the progress bar ends end or the total length can be up to 6.5 seconds. After these improvements the developers promise flawless user experience.
There is no word from Vine about the release date, but at least we know that the work is in progress. After the future Android expansion, Vine can become the gold standard for sharing short videos on the web, similar to Twitter’s short thoughts, analyzers predict. The future is promising, especially after seeing Barack Obama using Vine for uploading the latest White House videos.
