A few months ago Twitter released an app for iOS called Vine, which can be used to capture and share six second videos. Soon after its release, Vine was adopted by a lot of new users who seemed to like the idea of sharing these short video clips. While Android users keep on waiting for Vine, which is said to be coming soon, the iOS users have been treated to a new update today. The update brings features that had been suggested via feedback on a lot of things.
The highlight of this update is that users can now record six second videos using the front facing camera, if this doesn’t revolutionize selfies, I don’t know what will. The updated version of Vine also brings support for ‘@’ mentions. Mentioning a user in Vine is similar to the way one would do it in the Twitter app. Simply type @ and username, whereby relevant suggestions will be shown from which the person who is to be mentioned can be selected. Whosoever is mentioned in a post on Vine will receive a notification in their Activity tab. Vine version 1.1 for iOS download is available now from iTunes App Store.
