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.
While you’re watching clips in this new mode, you can tap and hold on a vine to make it loop. Other new features and improvements in Vine 5.13 for iOS include the ability to sort an account’s likes as well as posts, in addition to speed and performance improvements and bug fixes.
To see the new Watch button in action, check out Johnny McHone and Alona Forsythe for a couple examples. As for the newly added sorting options, tap Posts on a user’s channel to choose how you want to view videos: oldest to newest, newest to oldest or by what’s popular.
