Vine Releases On Windows Phone With Live Tiles Support

We previously caught a possible leak for what might be a Windows Phone 8 version of the popular micro-video social network, Vine. The leak simply had the Vine logo as part of Windows Phone 8’s Live Tiles home screen, and it looks like that leak turned out to be true as Vine is now available for Windows Phone users.

Vine could have simply ported over its popular application over to the Windows Phone platform and called it a day, but instead of going for just the minimum, they rolled out some Windows Phone-specific features. One of which integrates Vine with your Windows Phone’s Live Tiles so you can pin your favorite tags, channels or users to your home screen to be able to access later.

The Windows Phone version of Vine, just like previously released versions, will allow you to create short, looping videos with sound by simply tapping and holding the screen. The app includes camera tools, such as grid and ghost, which will help you shoot the best videos you possibly could, even if those videos are of you staring at an assortment of pies at your local grocery store. You may have some weird tastes in videos, but at least you’ll know they’ll look great with Vine’s assistance.
