Twitter’s popular video-sharing app Vine is now available for Windows Phone 8.
Twitter originally announced it was working on Vine for Windows Phone back at Nokia World, and now the official client has finally arrived on Microsoft’s mobile OS. Like its Android and iOS counterparts, Vine for WP will allow users to record six second videos with a simple tap and hold on the screen and share them with followers, view popular posts through the Explore option, see the latest in trends, and more.
The app will also take advantage of Live Tiles, giving users the option to pin their favorite accounts to the homescreen for easy access. Furthermore, Vine will also integrate with the camera lens feature, to allow access to initiating recording in Vine from the camera app. We took the app for a short spin, and found it works quite good – video loading and creation were quite quick even on a Lumia 720, which is something that wasn’t the case when the Android version was initially launched.
Vine is now available for Windows Phone 8 and can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store. That’s one more popular name in mobile apps that’s now on the third mobile ecosystem, and with Instagram also coming before the end of the year, reasons for not choosing Windows Phone seem to be disappearing at a steady pace.
