Earlier this month at the Nokia World 2013, Nokia announced that official versions of apps like Instagram, Flipboard and Vine would be arriving on Windows Phones before the end of the year. Almost on cue, Vine has been officially launched for Windows Phone 8 devices. Also Read - J&K government bans Facebook, WhatsApp, 20 other social media sites citing misuse
Vine for Windows Phone functions the same as its Android and iOS counterparts by letting users record six second videos and share them Facebook and Twitter. Features included on the app include ghost tools, overlay grid and the ability to explore videos posted under different categories.
What separates this app from the other versions is how it uses Live Tiles. When one pins the app to the Start screen, he or she will be able to see when their followers post a new video right there without having to go inside the app. One will also be able to pin individual Vine members or channels to the Live Tiles for faster access.
At last count, Vine had crossed 40 million registered users on Android and iOS within seven months of launch and the availability on the Windows Phone platform will only boost these numbers. You can head over to the Windows Phone Store to download the app.
