Vine co-founder hints that a new version of the app is in development

Vine 2: New app

Nearly eleven months ago, the popular short-form video platform Vine was shuttered for good. It was replaced with an app called Vine Camera, which carried the same name and featured the same functionality, but lacked the enormous community that made Vine such a weird, interesting and worthwhile app in the first place.

Vine as was dead, and everyone was going to have to live with that. At least, that was the story, until Vine co-founder Dom Hofmann announced late last month that he was working on "a follow-up to Vine." He revealed that he would be funding the new app himself as an outside project so as not to interfere with his work at his new company.

Twitter Transitioning Vine to a Simpler ‘Vine Camera’ App

vineTwitter today announced that rather than shutting down the Vine app entirely as planned, it will be transitioned into a new app called "Vine Camera."

Vine Camera will allow users to continue to make six-second looping videos that can then be saved to the iPhone's camera roll or shared directly on Twitter. No other Vine features will remain.

The Vine app will also be updated with a new feature that makes it easier for Vine users to link accounts to transition from Vine to Twitter, with a tool for allowing Vine followers to follow Vine users on Twitter instead.

Existing Vine videos can be downloaded through the Vine app or the Vine website, and all Vines will continue to be available on the Vine.co site. Vines will be available for download through the app until the transition is made to Vine Camera.

Twitter first announced plans to shut down Vine back in October. Twitter allegedly entertained multiple purchase offers for Vine before deciding to create the Vine Camera app.

Vine Update For iOS Now Supports 3D Touch

Vine app

If you happen to be a Vine lover there’s good news for you, Vine has just released a new update that introduces new features to enhance your viewing experience.

On Tuesday, Vine released version 5.3.0 of the app that now lets you briefly edit captions on your post, and enables you to sort through other Vine users’ profiles to find videos that interest you the most. The video sorting feature will allow you to reorganize the videos by newest, oldest, or most popular, rather than in a chronological order.

Vine plans on letting you edit captions after a Vine has been posted, which means you’ll never have to delete and re-do the post again. In order to do this, you’ll have to tap on the three dot menu once your video has been published. At the moment, this feature is out for Android users, but will soon be available to iOS users.

The app also supports 3D Touch, meaning all you have to do is press and hold the Vine’s app icon on the Home screen, to create a Vine or search for a Vine posted by someone else.

The Vine app can be downloaded on the App Store for free today.

Vine for iPhone gains 3D Touch shortcuts, new video sort order options

Vine 3D Touch

Twitter-owned Vine for iOS, which lets you create and share short video loops, received a new update today that adds new shortcuts from the Home screen on the latest iPhones. Users can press the updated Vine icon firmly on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to jump directly into making a short Vine clip or viewing the explore section of the app.

The new Vine update also adds an option for sorting clips from other users in different orders. For example, you can now sort videos by newest, oldest, and popular. The toggle for sort order can be found on account pages next to the Posts section.

The latest update follows the release of Vine’s Apple Watch app last fall, which works on watchOS 2 and lets you watch and discover popular short videos right on the Apple Watch. Vine also added new music editing tools and expanded social sharing last year.

Vine for iPhone version 5.3 is rolling out now on the App Store.
