Following the recent announcement that the Vine app as we know it will be sunset and morphed into a camera app, today is your last chance to save those Vine videos you created and published on the service over the years.
As the Vine app will officially become Vine Camera today (January 17th), the company says all videos uploaded will remain on the vine.co website where you’ll still be able to watch them, but if you were big on Vine, it might still be a good idea to save all your creations locally either to your iPhone or to a computer.

Twitter on Friday announced that it would not be shutting down its popular video social media service, but will instead transition it into a ‘Vine Camera’ app. The new app will be a very pared-down version of the current client, and will be available in January.
With Vine Camera, you’ll still be able to record looping 6-second videos, but your only other options will be to share it to Twitter or save it to your phone. The goal here is to allow folks to continue to create Vines, but to move the social media aspect to Twitter. Read More

A new Watch button was rolled out yesterday to Vine’s iPhone application in the App Store, allowing you to enjoy videos in channels and on profile pages without having to manually scroll through individual posts. It’s basically a whole new way to watch Vine as you can now kick back and view the entire story of any channel or watch an account from start to finish. Read More

I recently talked about sharing Instagram videos on Vine, a multi-step procedure that involves a third-party app to save an Instagram clip to the Camera roll before posting it manually to the Twitter-owned Vine service.
So far so good.
But what about the other way round? Of course that same process applies to posting vine clips on Instagram: save a vine to the device before manually sharing it on Instagram.
As it turns out, there’s a bunch of third-party apps in the App Store which can take the pain out of resharing vines on Instagram. With VineGrab, a free iPhone app by Xiaoyu Xia, not only can you watch vines in a more elegant interface than Vine’s own, you can also repost your favorite ones to Instagram. Read More

Sharing an Instagram video on Vine, a shortform video-sharing service, is not as trivial as it seems at first blush.
Instagram’s app does not connect directly to Twitter-owned Vine and Facebook is doing a surprisingly good job clamping down on third-party apps which would permit users to reshare Instagram videos to Vine. A workaround solution involves downloading these videos to your device before they can be manually posted to Vine.
If you’re jailbroken, there are many Cydia tweaks for saving Instagram media to an iPhone, such as InstaBetter, InstaEnhancer and InstaTools, to mention a few. In this tutorial, we’ll be covering the process of resharing Instagram videos to Vine using InstaBoard for iPhone, a free app for downloading Instagram media to iOS devices. Read More

Vine, a Twitter owned mobile application for short-form video sharing, has been updated in the App Store this morning with three new features. For starters, owners of the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s plus can press Vine’s icon on the Home screen to access a shortcut menu with a pair of options to make a Vine or jump into the Explore feed.
In addition, you can now edit your Vine’s caption for a brief period after you post and watch an account’s Vines in any order you want. Read More

Who knew 6-second-long looping video clips would turn out to be so much fun? If you’re into short-form entertainment, there’s probably no better place to get your daily fix of user-posted clips, some of which are quite interesting—I’ve seen whole how-tos compressed into six seconds—than Vine.
The problem is, both Vine the website and mobile app prohibit you from saving your favorite clips to your computer or mobile device. Thankfully, there are apps for that, too.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to save Vine videos to your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac using a nifty little utility and a free of charge web app. Read More

Twitter-owned Vine, a short-form video sharing service, is now available on the Apple Watch with a native watchOS 2 app that streams best videos from Featured and Favorites sections to your wrist.
A Vine complication is available as well so you can track your account’s loops and access the native app from your watch face. In addition to the Apple Watch app, this edition of Vine includes features that make it easier to make and discover audio remixes on the service and more. Read More

Vine on Wednesday announced a new update for its popular mobile video-sharing app. It appears that this is a backend update, as I didn’t have to download anything to see the changes (although I did restart the app), but there are a few new features worth noting.
The first is a new audio remix option. With Remix, users can make their own creations with sound from any Vine with the touch of a finger. Just tap the […] button beneath a Vine clip within the mobile app, and select “Make an audio remix” from the popup menu. Read More

Twitter on Friday pushed out an update for its popular video-sharing Vine app, bringing the iPhone client to version 4.3. The update is a minor one, as the release notes only mention a few changes, but there are two new features worth mentioning.
The first is the addition of Hearts, which bring the app more in line with Twitter’s other products. Like the social network did earlier this week, Vine has replaced its ‘Favorites’ (the smiley face) feature with a new, more meaningful heart-shaped icon. Read More
