App of the Week: Vine

“Ion’ care. We on Vine.” This seems to be a popular phrase heard around Baltimore City these past few days. If you haven’t heard it, be sure to turn on your radios to 92Q because they’ve definitely been broadcasting it with every commercial break. But I’m not going to discuss this quote at all. I want to talk about the App that has brought upon us a social media uproar. I’m telling you about Vine.

Vine

What does this app do?

According to the Google Play App Store:

“Supports Android 4.0 and higher.

Vine is the best way to see and share life in motion. Create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way for your friends and family to see.

• Unlimited uploads and free
• Instantly post videos on Vine, then share to Twitter and Facebook!
• Find, follow, and interact with people close to you
• Explore trending posts, featured hashtags and editor’s picks
• And so much more.”

According to Doc:

The app is specifically video based. It’s an Instagram for Videos. You don’t want to compare it to YouTube because YouTube is a bit more complex. Vine is simple. You follow as many people as you want, just like on Instagram and Twitter. Then you watch six second videos of the people you’ve followed. You’re allowed to comment and like the videos, which is similar to what you do in Instagram.

Where can I get this App?

iTune’s App Store

Android’s Google Play Store

How much does this App cost?

Nothing!

Would I use this app?

I already use it. If you want to follow me, my name is always the same (EhhWassupDoc_). I follow people who are funny. Most of which are those who are rated popular by how many likes they get on their videos. It give you the opportunity to be creative because it forces you to do a short video only using 6 seconds. Not too many people can do that. But it’s fun to see people try. I recommend this app for the creative folk like that. So make sure you download it.
