Vine, Vine app, Vine for mobile

Hot on the heels of a Windows Phone update, Vine has also pushed out a new version for Android smartphones and tablets.

Compared to the update received back in November that added a whopping 19 new languages to Vine, the latest update to the app running on Google’s operating system is minor, true, but it’s definitely bigger than the early December update, which merely fixed a few bugs. The fact that there’s not even a changelog showing any new changes is surprising given that the application has been rolled out to Android Gingerbread (Android 2.3) devices, who were previously unable to partake in the super short video watching phenomenon (Vine did, however, post a blog entry on the change).

Vine for Gingerbread does not support uploading videos

It’s worth noting that Vine for Gingerbread is view only; unfortunately, uploads are not yet supported.

In its announcement, Vine made no mention of any bug fixes (not that the app needs any based on our experiences thus far), so it looks like the Gingerbread compatibility was the only change this time around. If you haven’t already received the update, you can download it here.
