After being worked upon for the past couple of months, Vine has finally come to the Apple Watch. The app had been under construction since at least this summer when it was first showcased in an on-stage demonstration at an Apple event in June.
The launch of the watchOS app, that took place yesterday on the 24th of November, allows users to run videos on their gadget, while at the same time allows a feature that other than being borderline obsessive also lets you keep track of the number of times your video has been looped.
However despite all of Apple’s efforts, there is a sense of incompetence with various apps on the Watch. It seems like too many iPhone [...]
Only for the 90s kid does it seem a rather difficult task to get recognition for something they’re good at. Today’s unapologetic society’s mantra goes something like this – so what if I’m not good at anything? I can be famous too and you can’t judge me for it. Today it’s not about being good at something; it’s all about being famous. This mind-set has translated down to the vortex of social media, which was initially used to communicate with friends and people all around the world. Today, social media has been made the biggest business mogul, management company, call it what you may but it boils down to being called the new kingmaker.
Instagram, now owned by Facebook, started out in 2010 primarily as a photo sharing service. The Video sharing feature was introduced in the 2013. Despite timelapse apps being introduced, Instagram was still best known for photos.
Instagram introduced a new update for its video feature that may prove beneficial to advertisers. It may seem that Instagram might have been inspired by Vine, a video sharing service, who had introduced the loop feature back in 2014.
The looping feature can be seen below:
Videos uploaded on Instagram will now loop continuously from the start till the end, and cannot be [...]
Vine introduced some new additions, Sessions and Time Travel. Vine claims with these new features, you can maintain multiple posts in progress over time and edit your posts before you share them.

Time Travel: Tap the green bar from the camera while you’re shooting, or tap ‘Edit’ when you’re previewing a post. With this users can remove, reorganize or replace any shot within a post before its even shared.
Vine was built for one purpose to make it easy for [...]
Twitter’s video sharing app, Vine, has been overshadowed by the addition of video to Instagram, but that hasn’t stopped millions of people from signing up for Vine. Vine announced this afternoon that it just hit 40 million registered users today – a huge jump from the 13 million users it announced in June.
However, the company behind the app, which lets users share looping videos of up to six seconds, doesn’t give any data on the number of active users. Without the all-important active user figures, it’s difficult to draw too many conclusions from Vine’s announcement, though at least the numbers appear to be heading in the right direction for the company.
For a long [...]
An updated version of the Vine application is now available for download for the owners of Android-based devices, namely version 1.3.3, with some appealing improvements packed inside.
With the newest version, Viners now have the ability to share user profiles through more than just the SMS app (hopefully all Android apps with sharing capabilities will be available). Users can also look forward to push notifications, so they never miss a mention or re-Vine.
Furthermore, the new application release provides the possibility to share any public post to Twitter or Facebook, while also [...]
Honda’s luxury sub-brand Acura will reveal the prototype NSX on the 4th of August, when it shows up at Mid-Ohio Raceway for the Honda 200 IndyCar race, but the genuine production car isn’t scheduled to arrive until 2015. But just to keep fanboys (like myself) enthusiastic about the return of the sports car, Acura has released Vine and Instagram videos with very exciting snippets of the mid-engined coupe lapping a test track in both the dry and the wet.
The concept version for the new NSX was first unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show last year, with a slightly revised version making an appearance in January of [...]
Facebook may be preparing to add video-sharing features to its Instagram app, in a direct response to the popularity of Twitter’s Vine app.
According to TechCrunch, the company will unveil the new service at an event on June 20th. Earlier it was rumoured that Facebook will launch it’s own RSS service at the June event.
Instagram is a popular photo-sharing application that is available for Android and iOS. Facebook had acquired Instagram in 2012 for a whopping $1 billion. About three months ago, Instagram had announced that it has 100 million monthly active users and these [...]
Vine for Android is now available for devices running Android 4.0 and above.
While the wait has been arduous for thousands of Android users accustomed to simulteanous app releases, but Twitter has finally released Vine for Android to the world. The six-second video social network has been the talk of the media and journalism circuit since its iPhone release in January, and an Android version was promised shortly thereafter.
The initial Android app is bare-bones: you can view the masterpieces from your stream of followers, upload your own six-second Vines, explore popular posts and [...]
Vine, Twitter’s popular video sharing app, has been a success on iOS and consistently remained as being one of the top ten social apps.
The free app allows you to record 6-second looping videos and share them via Vine, Twitter or Facebook. Dom Hofmann, the original creator of Vine, spoke with The Verge and he noted that a future enhancement that will be coming to iOS will be the option to tag people, which as a result will make it even more social.
In addition, Vine is poised to expand past Apple and integrate into the lives of Android [...]
