Perfect Timing: Vine Now Available for Android

Aeryn Lynne

So something funny happened in my mail today, and I wanted to share it with you all in a quick, hopefully amusing, six second or less video.  Except, up until this point, Android users didn’t have access to the awesome that is Vine. I was all *sad face* and went to Google Play hoping to find an alternative.  Imaging my second amazing surprise for the day, when I saw this…

Vine Now Available for Android

Like… YAY!! VINE IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID! (Go download it now!) How awesome is this??  I’ve obviously haven’t been able to play with it much, but it was really simple to get film the video bit that I wanted.

One thing I have noticed, ’cause I wanted to share my video through the Twitter embed function, is that my vine video didn’t tweet.  Twitter is having issues today though, that may or may not have to do with Android users using Vine, so its possible that my tweet disappeared into the ether before it reached the masses.  Ah well.

I was able to upload it to YouTube though, ’cause Vine saves an .mp4 file onto your smartphone… which is finally a reason why I would consider going for bigger hard drive space on my phone (or at least ensure I can extend with an sd card.)  EDIT: So the Vine tweet finally showed up, will have to find out if it usually takes a while or if this was just a one time thing.

So yeah, thanks to Canada Dry, I wanted to share this with ya’ll, lol…

Hahahah that’s nice the Canada dry thing. Well I don’t have Vine but a lot of my friends have been using it. Maybe I’ll download it in the near future.

MightyKarine when I first heard of Vine, I thought “…. WHY?!”  I couldn’t really understand it, but then I saw a number of video examples at a WordCamp (a WordPress non-conference,) during a presentation and had this ah ha! moment, lol.  It’s kinda interesting what stories you can tell (or watch) in six seconds! 🙂

candace_dx Hmm… I might know a Geek or two… 😉  Now that Google+ has switched stuff around, I’m trying to “relearn” it all over again. I was *just* getting to the point where I could confidently say, “I know how to use Google+ like a boss.”  Now? It’s like, “Erm, yeah, let me get back to you on that.” *facepalm*

I should probably be embarrassed to admit this, but I have no idea what vine is.

I haven’t gotten on to vine yet. I am so technologically brainless that I am always 10 techno steps behind! It looks so cool though!

Thanks for showing us the Canada Dry surprise.  I kept reading about it but no one said what it did.  BTW, as soon as I read your post, I downloaded the Vine for Android.  Thanks.

MargaritaIbbott I am going to go cray-cray with Vine at BlogHer, LOL! 😀  I hadn’t heard of the Canada Dry surprize thing until I saw my mail. Not even sure which channel sent it to me…
