Vine Android app

A Vine Android app must be one of the most awaited things by Android users, ever since Instagram finally got to our beloved platform. The good news is that it’s finally coming to the Google Play Store.

While Vine may not be anything incredible, (after all, it’s an app that allows you to create six-second videos), the Twitter-owned app has gathered quite a following between iOS users, being the number one free app in Apple’s App Store at the moment.

Clues pointing to a Vine Android app have been out ever since February, when the company has started looking for a lead Android engineer. Why would anyone do that, unless they were developing an Android app? Well, the fact that a Vine Android app is on its way is now officially confirmed by Dom Hofmann, one of Vine’s co-creators.

Speaking at the Tribeca Film Festival, an event in which Vine has its own category (it’s really that popular), Hofmann said that an Android app would be “coming soon.” While he didn’t give an exact date, that can only mean that things are going in the right direction.

Of course, there are Android alternatives, such as Cinemagram, but the real thing is always what everyone’s waiting for and, hopefully, the wait will be a very short one.

Do you think Vine will be a success on Android? Are you looking forward to it?
