GrapeVine Beta: browse the latest Vine posts. Six seconds of looping video here we go!
Vine is one of the hottest social apps out there, there was only one downside: no Vine app for Android! However the official Vine app for Android has launched. You can download it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.vine.android
To use the app simply select a category an icon on the dashboard to view a category. Then when you see the list of posts, select one and you will jump to the twitter app where you can then watch the video. Pull to refresh in the list for more content.
For the best experience it is recommended that you have the official twitter app installed. This app is for browsing vine videos; it is not for creating them. I have no affiliation with the makers of the vine app in anyway.
Vine (http://vine.co) is a new service launched by the folks over at twitter. It’s basically twitter for video, and it’s really cool. On their blog they describe it as: “a new mobile service that lets you create and share beautiful, short looping videos. With Vine, capturing life in motion is fun and easy.” The only downside is that currently the app is only available for the iPhone and the iPad, which is great unless you use an Android device. Hey Vine what about us?
So just for fun I whipped up a quick proof of concept that would allow people to browse and view some of the vines that are being created out there. I got some inspiration from seeing what was happening over at http://vinepeek.com/ so check them out. I added a view of the official vine twitter feed: @vineapp to the app so you can follow along with what they are doing.
If people like what this app can do I will expand the concept to provide a more integrated experience, allowing searching etc. For now you can browse the latest vine posts, plus the following searches:
Have fun, when the vine app launches on Android be sure to grab it! (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.vine.android ) Remember to install the official twitter app!
I have no affiliation with, nor am I endorsed by, either vine or twitter.
