Major Update To Instagram Rival – Vine – ‘Biggest Most Exciting Update Yet’

Vine have updated their Instagram rival mobile movie app and they’re calling it their ‘biggest most exciting update yet – with more coming soon’. There are some great new camera tools – the camera has been redesigned and now includes grid, focus and ghost tools to make shooting videos even easier.

The developers have also introduced Channels – there’s 15 of them, allowing you to submit posts to or browse from the Explore screen. These channels include comedy, music, nature for example and each have their own theme and popular feed.

There’s also On The Rise – this allows you to discover new people who are starting to capture the attention and interest of others within the Vine community.

Revining – You can now share other people’s posts with all your followers in one tap and finally there’s Protected Posts – as most Vine posts are public, this gives you more control over who can see your posts and only the people that you approve can follow them.

So, this is a very comprehensive and worthwhile update – Vine is free of course and you can update or upload it here.
