Twitter launches iOS video sharing app Vine
Vine – from Twitter – appears to compete with the array of video-only sharing apps landing on the market.
The time limit on Vine videos is pretty short – up to six seconds – and it’s all organized in a simple running timeline that loops constantly.
Something that’s particularly different with Vine is that you don’t necessarily need to hit a record button to start shooting. Just touch and hold the screen to record, and then let go when the recording should stop.
After that’s done, upload the video to Vine, Twitter and Facebook.
Twitter knew it needed to expand from the basic offerings of 140-character updates and images, and this will help them.
One thing I’d like to see them improve is Vine’s ‘friend’ list. I needed to manually tell it to search my Twitter account for other users to follow, which is something I would think a Twitter app would do automatically.
Another wish is for Vine to help find friends via Facebook, a feature that the world’s largest social network has blocked.
