Vine set to spread to Windows Phone

Published by at

Along with Instagram, Nokia World also announced the upcoming availability of Vine, the 'six second video sharing service' that was acquired by Twitter before its launch in January this year. This will be the first official Windows Phone client for the service that lets users create and share short videos, and it is expected to be available in the next few weeks.

Just as we saw with the Instagram announcement, details are scarce at the moment beyond the company logo being displayed on the stage and the official word from Stephen Elop. While there has been less public clamour for Vine as there has been for Instagram, it is a notable media based application, and one that is used widely in social media - there's an argument to be made that Vine is the first 'breakout' video based social media service.

I'm also intrigued to see what happens with 6sec and 6tag, Rudy Huyn's third party clients for Vine and Instagram respectively. at the very least they provide a competent base line that the official apps are going to have to clear.

We'll bring you more news and a full review here on AAWP when the app reaches the Windows Store.
