Vine video sharing app

As with a good number of apps these days, Vine has launched as an iOS exclusive in its initial iteration. The Twitter-owned video service loops six-second videos and is the video equivalent of Instagram in many respects. But potential for porn and other naughty stuff aside, what’s interesting with Vine is that the app feeds on users’ interest in seeing things through the eyes of their online friends.

Vine might soon be coming to Android, though, if we can take the developers’ hunt for Android engineers as a sign. Vine is looking for a “lead Android engineer” among other developer openings.

So if you’re an Android developer from New York (or willing to relocate) and you think you can do a great job at building an Android app for the short video sharing service, then head on to Vine’s job page. For the rest of us, we can probably anticipate Vine to come up with an Android app in the near future. It’s either they’re planning to start or they’ve done a port already but still want to optimize their app for Android. After all, apart from an Android lead, they’re also looking for front-end and UI developers.
