Vine Social Video App Hits Android Devices At Last

Vine is now available on Android phones. Given Android's huge market share, this could result in an explosion in users similar to that experienced by Instagram when it hit Android devices in early 2012.

At long last, Twitter's six-second video app is available for Android owners. Twitter announced the news Monday on its blog, saying, "We’ve been looking forward to this day," and so have Android users, no doubt. The app has been downloaded by more than 13 million people, and in April was the number one app in the U.S. App Store.

The Android version of Vine includes many of the features already available on iOS, including the ability to search trending topics, find your friends, and share posts to Twitter. But there's also a new feature: zoom.

Twitter warns the two versions of the app aren't yet perfectly synced, but told users to expect updates in the coming weeks, including a front-facing camera, and the ability to share on Facebook.
