Owned by Twitter and initially an iOS only affair, Vine is the 6 second video sharing application that came to Android in June 2013. Initially it had the market cornered and quickly became the most popular video sharing service on the web. Since then the powerhouse that is Instagram – among others – have done similar projects with sharing short video clips, but Vine certainly set the ball rolling.
Since it first arrived, Vine has received a number of updates to add new features, but the video length still, always, remains at 6 seconds. It's now rocking a sleeker design than the days of old and has added new features like a loop counter and account milestones. Vine-ers can view their friends videos within the dedicated Android application, but the wider world will get to see them on Twitter.
