In early July, Twitter promised the launch of the Vine app for Windows Phone 8 and now Vine is finally available on Windows Phone store.
It’s one of the most awaited app for the platform by the users after the Instagram, and both were shown during Nokia World in late October. The main features which allow you to record and share videos ranging from 6 seconds are the same as found on Android and iOS platform, but Windows Phone version still lacks other platforms exclusive features.
User can use the rear camera as well as front-facing camera to capture a video. To start recording, simply press and hold your finger on the screen. User can also make quick editing using integrated tools, as time lapse and ghost mode, before publishing the 6-sec stream to Facebook or Twitter.
Vine for Windows Phone 8 includes a section that allows you to discover new content flipping through the channels, in addition, user can see the most popular posts and interact with other people.
The unique features are the ability to create a tile for accounts and channels on the Start screen; the integration of camera lens; and support for fast resume — a feature related to multitasking. In options, there’re also buttons to stop playing and mute the video.
From first impression, the app for Windows Phone 8 doesn’t seem to live up to Vine for iOS and Android, but it’s only the first version and there is room for improvement. Besides, at the moment there is no traces for other languages’ version than English.
