Vine remembers it has a Windows Phone app, finally updates it
When Vine revealed its newfound HD ambitions last week, your author wondered out loud whether the company’s long-in-the-tooth Windows Phone app was ever going to get an update again. Well, the answer is a pretty definitive yes: Vine pushed out the update earlier today, and with it comes a new look, support for Vine messaging and the ability to import videos straight from your camera. (Oh, and for those keeping count, the last time Vine updated the app was over a year ago. Seriously.)
You’ll be able to edit those clips once you’ve imported them into the app proper, too, just to make sure your six second slice of life is as heartfelt/inane/ridiculous as it truly deserves to be. None of this’ll sound terribly novel if you’ve been watching the iOS and Android versions of the app grow and develop (to wit: the importing and editing features went live for iOS users last August) but it’s nice to be reminded that Microsoft’s mobile platform isn’t completely being ignored by the app-makers that could make or break it.
