Vine App Finally Released for Android Devices
Twitter today made available a version of its Vine video-sharing application for devices running Google's Android platform. Until today, the app and service have been exclusive to Apple's iPhone. Vine lets users create short, 6-second videos that can then be embedded in Tweets, posted on Facebook, or otherwise shared across the web. The videos play automatically and loop continuously. The Android version has one feature that the iPhone does not: the ability to zoom in. However, it ships without some features that the iPhone app has, such as the ability to access the user-facing camera. Twitter said that it will update Vine quickly over the following weeks to bring the Android version into parity with the iPhone version. Vine is free to download from the Google Play Store.
