Vine has been the topic of tons of articles lately and it seems like everyone is talking about the video sharing app. In fact, last month Vine became the number one most downloaded free app in Apple’s App Store.
Not sure what the excitement is all about? Here’s a quick run down of Vine and what it offers:
- Vine is a mobile video app - The app is currently only available on iOS devices, but Vine reports that they are working to bring the app to Android.
- Videos are short – The user films short, separate instances and they can be linked together for a total of six seconds. The video loops so it looks somewhat like a GIF.
- Vines can be shared – Twitter acquired Vine in October 2012 and many Vines are shared on Twitter. Users can also share to Facebook and vines can be embedded on the web.
- Vine’s interface is similar to Instagram – Friends’ vines are in a feed on the homescreen and users have a profile page.
