Reviewed in Best Social Apps for Everyone
What is Vine if not another way to get social? Yes, it's based on creating actual videos, and usually it's not spontaneous videos like Reaction apps, but it connects people nonetheless! Although I prefer the web experience of Vine, because that's where I montage the videos for it, but for viewing and user interactions - the Vine app is great.
This is Vine’s biggest update yet! We’re excited to introduce Vine Messages, or VMs – the best new way to have video conversations with your friends.
Look for the “Messages” icon in the action bar or swipe left from home.
To send a Vine message, go to the Messages drawer or tap the Message button on your friend’s profiles.
Each Vine message can start one conversation, or many – it’s your choice.
Found a great Vine video? Simply tap the Share button under Vine posts, then choose "Vine Message" to share it privately. Your friends can respond directly to keep the conversation going.
Vine messages aren’t limited by your Vine contacts, either - you can send a VM to anyone via email or SMS, even if they’re not part of the Vine community.
You can also customize your profile with colors – go to Settings to unlock the full array of options.
This update also includes bug fixes and performance improvements.
