Vine For Android Gets Front Facing Camera Support & Upload Manager

Instagram introduce 15 second videos a very short while back, effectively taking away the ‘Instagram for videos’ title from Twitter’s Vine that had started the whole short video sharing craze with its 6 second long videos. While Vine has Twitter’s user base to count on for users and growth, Instagram has both its own and Facebook’s users who are clamoring to join it and upload their 15 second videos. Naturally, this means stiff competition for Vine, which is very likely going to fight back. It has just released an update for its Android app, which now supports the front facing camera on your device and has an upload manager for reviewing failed uploads. The app has also added support for more devices, made some improvements to the settings and tweaked the camera to load faster...
Vine now supports the front facing camera on your device. Tap the camera icon at the top to open your camera and you will notice a new button (it looks something like a refresh icon). Tap it to toggle which camera is in use. You will record a video the same way you used to when using the default camera i.e. by tapping and holding the screen. The upload and share procedure also remains the same.

With this update, an uploads manager has been added as well, and it serves purely for Vines that have failed to upload. The uploads manager only shows Vines that you decided to publish, which means if you created a Vine and decided not to upload/publish it, it will not appear in the uploads manager. Vine does not save unpublished videos, ever. To view the ‘Uploads’ page, you will have to tap the upload failed notification in the notification bar. Once in the uploads manager, tap a failed upload to try again, or tap and hold it to delete it. Vine will ask you to confirm if you want to delete the video.

Other improvements to the app are all performance-related; the camera loads faster now, and the app seems to be working smoother than it did before. There is a rather long delay when switching between the front and back facing cameras but when opened for the first time, the camera loads pretty quick. The update is huge because it bring support for the front facing camera. If you were hoping for filters and longer videos though, this is not the update you’re looking for.

  5. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could
    get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Have a look at my web blog Minecraft 1.7 Tutorials

  6. First, in case you are selling merchandise on your site, I would recommend setting up a Pay
    - Pal account. Participate in Blog Memes, coordinated blog-post events
    that center around a topic, just like the recent "I'm that mom" meme for unschoolers.
    Hiring freelance designers for the sake of web designing
    with a lower cost would be a bad idea. One also can just come up with a bunch of pages on various
    things or one ultra popular idea that people
    will go from their strategy to find. Webs do not provide you
    with as much features as u - Coz, but it is easier to work with.
