The biggest tech releases last week was the video app by Twitter called Vine. Vine is an app that can be used to create gif like videos which are up to 6 seconds max. Twitter is known best for its versatility through restricted mode length of social media conversations. Twitter, the 140 characters micro-blog has done its best job again; app for creating and sharing videos which is restricted and as short as 6 seconds max. Though this app is available only for iPhone and iPod touch at the moment, the Twitter blog claims to bring this app soon to other platforms.
On the Vine Blog, they said-
Posts on Vine are about abbreviation — the shortened form of something larger. They're little windows into the people, settings, ideas and objects that make up your life. They're quirky, and we think that's part of what makes them so special.
Just have a look on how these looped videos or the vines (as they are called) look like-
Just released last week and this app is all set to hit the "editor's pick" list on the Apple store where it is currently positioned at Top 13 on the list of apps.
To start making your looping scene on Vine, just follow these simple steps-
- Download the Twitter's Vine app from the app store (include link) on your iOS device (iPhone/iPod touch).
- Set your standard permissions like access to your location and push notifications. If you already have a Twitter account then you can directly sign in or if you do not have one then you can use your email address to sign in.
- Vine will create your profile using the information available on your Twitter account if you sign in with Twitter but you do have a choice to edit the information before sign up.
- You are greeted by a landing page once you finish off sign up. Very much similar to Instagram, this landing page has the editor's choice Vines till you start following people.
- To start creating your first Vine, head to the camera button on the top right of the home page and click it. You will be getting a separate page with camera view, along with a status bar on top.
- Hold your finger on the screen as long as you want the video to be recorded. You will get a green line on status bar as an indication to know the time left to finish your 6 second video record or the vine. Remove your finger and you have your first vine recorded.
- You will get a preview and you can choose to either continue or delete the vine.
- You have the option to share your vine on Twitter, Facebook and on the Vine itself.
