Vine Goes Cross Platform, Launches On Windows Phone
Vine, the 6-second video app started by Twitter, has just come to the Windows Phone platform. Windows Phone users will now be able to join their friends in posting short videos to the service via a tap and hold gesture. It works just like its Android and iOS counterparts, complete with camera tools and an Explore mode for discovering new content.
Just for Windows Phone, Vine also includes the ability to pin a particular Vine account to your home screen as a Live Tile, and the app incorporates Windows Phone’s Pivot function for switching between apps.
The Android version of the app came out 4 months after the initial release of the iOS app, and the Windows Phone version has been released about 5 months after the Android version. Not even one year old yet, Vine has exploded in popularity quickly, and many users will be glad to see it becoming a cross-platform app on the three largest mobile operating systems.
Any Windows Phone users out there who have just been dying for an official Vine app? Is Microsoft’s ever-growing catalog of apps enough to convince you to switch to Windows Phone? Let us know in the comments.
