Vine for Android Released; Not in Sync with iOS

Vine for Android

Vine for Android released by Twitter:

Twitter announced on Monday that Vine for Android is finally available. The app, which has lived exclusively on iOS for five months now, is available on the Google Play Store.
For those of you that don’t know what Vine is, it is a social video service that allows users to record six second videos and share them with their friends. The videos play on a loop, sort of like a .gif with sound, and can be shared across multiple social networks.
Twitter explains that the iOS app and the Android app are
“not perfectly in sync, but that won’t be the case for long.”
The company states that in the coming weeks, there will be frequent updates with new features to the Android app including front-facing support, ability to search mentions and hashtags, along with the ability to share to Facebook.
The company does assure users that the Android app has:
“many of the features that more than 13 million people have grown to love.”
 Currently, Vine for Android features:
• Unlimited uploads
• Ability to instantly post videos on Vine, then share to Twitter and Facebook (more coming soon!)
• Find, follow, and interact with people close to you
• Explore trending posts, featured hashtags and editor’s picks
Vine was released five months ago to much fanfare from the iOS community, garnering around 13 million users, and ever since, many Android users have wondered where their version of the application was. With its release, Twitter shows that they intend to keep their promise to bring the app to multiple platforms. Vine being released to other platforms shows that the social video service is still popular almost half a year after its release and continues to grow.
Vine for Android works on phones running Android 4.0 or later and with at least 18MB of available storage. The application is available as a free download from the Google Play Store.
