Vine Lead

Vine for Windows Phone is now available for download

Updated 11:30 AM ET: The Official Vine app is now live in the Store. Link below.

Vine has today announced on the official blog that their Windows Phone app will be released today. Fans of the service have been left with little choice but rely on third-party solutions (6sec and Viner to name a few) while Vine looked at developing an official app for Microsoft's mobile platform. We covered an unveiling of the official Vine app at Nokia World 2013, but soon you'll be able to download the app and create some awesome short clips.

If you're not familiar with the service, Vine enables you to create looping videos with sound - think of them much like animated GIF images. The team will be releasing a product, which is in line with what's already available on iOS and Android. However, they have confirmed specific Windows Phone features such as the ability to pin favourite Vine accounts to the Start screen and we bet there'll be integration with the camera.

Download the official Vine app for Windows Phone here in the Store. 10 MB, Free. Windows Phone 8 only.

I tipped this!

q21701 says:

1000 internets for you and an "atta boy" too.

rodneyej says:

Good job Jasper❕

rodneyej says:

Yes❕ You❕.. You're Jasper❗.. That's why we all bow down to you.. Thanks for your ever continued support of the WP platform, and WPC.. You are a WP GOD, my friend.

jlynnm350z says:

You sir are an amazing human being. We all are in your debt.

rodneyej says:

You are awesome to.. Don't forget yourself. You awesome person.. You.

Sarang68 says:

Ok. Enough of the humbling act.;-)

rodneyej says:

What❔ Everyone likes the $hit out of you.. Don't you think that's cool❔

uchiha21 says:

FINALLY! I have been waiting for this day. Thanks, guys.

rodneyej says:

Really❔ I've been waiting for the day Kate Upton knocks on my door and ask to wrap her lips around my rooster.. I guess we all have different aspirations.....

ymcpa says:

Yeah, but he was waiting for something plausible. You are waiting for a fantasy that will never happen.

rodneyej says:

Hey, I just want to let you know that it happen around 3:24pm today. So, don't ever try to crush my dreams again... And yes, she does smell like bubble gum, just like I suspected... Jokes on you❕❕

Sean D. says:

This guy gets it. ^

twentythreee says:

6sec really gave us a reason not to wait for this :P
But fine that it's here finally!

rodneyej says:

Yeah, it's good for adoption.

Lobbie1978 says:

If you would have said "Vine that it's here Vinally" it would be funny :)

viperbux says:

This is how I feel about 6tag / Instagram.  It's good for companies to support WP, but honestly, with such great third-party apps, I'm not chomping at the bit like I use to. 

unnatixlr8 says:

I hope Instagram will be releasing soon.

rodneyej says:

You know it will.

WP95 says:

Tom Warren of The Verge replied to a comment saying it could be here before the end of the month.

Jf.Vigor says:

The hell does he know. I could have said the same thing based upon "in the coming weeks". I actually think it will be out before next Friday for obvious reasons

Flagz says:

I have a slight feeling it will be out November 22nd..

JoRdaNeK says:


Jandieg says:

Why are you calling him?

Joel Back says:

Just don't call him 2 more times!

JoRdaNeK says:


JoRdaNeK says:

All these apps are copying of yours Rudy! Quick, push the kill switch!! :P

abond32 says:

6sec but appreciate it

Rudy is a great guy, and at times, better than the official apps, but what else is he going to make?

He's working on a Snapchat client at the moment.

rodneyej says:

Yeah, what's taking so long with that❔

icstars989 says:

Last I heard he's tackling every unsupported app.

Jack Larson1 says:

i can't wait for rudy's version of infinity blade!

LightBulbIT says:

So we have everything that iOS has? I think there's PLENTY left to do. I wouldn't worry about that ;-)

sasukeluffy says: please..

scdkad says:

Siriusxm-I've been bugging them for 2 years.

Flagz says:

I'm still waiting for a few..

A DirecTV companion app that actually works.

Instagram (coming soon)

A Proper Youtube App

Subway Surfers and other random games


Diego Angeli says:

No worry pal, he still has to fill the gaps from Waze, Gtalk, GVoice, Tinder, Hangouts, Dropbox, Pinterest... 


And he might also try to make REAL apps for Facebook, Facebook Messenenger, Gmaps, Youtube...

Tinder and Pinterest are the only non-Google apps that I think WP is lacking (Waze is Google now btw)

TechAbstract says:

Waze is almost ready to release for WP8.

Diego Angeli says:

It's almost ready to release for 9 months... it's like a baby

Adi2 says:

The bad news is that waze has a step so it could delay the birth    Taht sob  lol

Sean D. says:

If you realy think there needs to be a "gap filled" for missing google apps, you must be smoking sherm.

Diego Angeli says:

Yeah, cuz 99% of WP users are fanboys that hate the evil Google and doesn't relly on Waze, or Hangouts or Gmaps, or Goggle Docs, or a dedicated Gmail app, or G+, or Google Earth, GTalk, or Analytics, or Google Translator............

Why someone would move from other platforms to find no Google apps when you can have an Android/Iphone and rock with Skydrive, Hotmail, Skype, Office... Where Facebook and WhatsApp (ok, this ones you can't say nobody uses) actualy works, and have that many thousand apps that don't work here or relly on a few good third party developers to FILL THE HUGE GAP

Yeah, I must be drugged

Jack Larson1 says:

I only use Gmail, YouTube, and google chrome, but rarely on my phone.

Paola1993 says:

Like your comment. Hate to disagree, but WhatsApp is one of the most awful apps compared to the other OS. WhatsApp on Android is a beauty.

Diego Angeli says:

I agree with you. I said that people USE these apps, not that they are any good. Like facebook for WP, WhatsApp is a total embarassment for the platform. Even Wechat or Line, which have fewer users are better apps

dalydose says:

Waze is already coming. The Google has announced that they are cutting off 3rd party apps in early 2014

scooby boom7 says:

I would love to see a Rudy's Youtube version :)

scooby boom7 says:

I would love to see a Rudy's Youtube version :)

Capsloc says:

Waze said they are close to going live.

nelsonecm says:

He should make a Pinterest app.

Ordeith says:

Pinsation works pretty well.  Focus should be on apps that don't already have a viable alternative.


bkacz88 says:

Yea I could totally go for snapchat, tinder and YouTube apps from Rudy!

viperbux says:

Pinterest! My... um... my wife, yah... SHE wants a Pinterest app... its for her... I swear. Sheesh, guys don't use Pinterest... *ahem*

max_blunk says:

Yeay! And then Path! Wooooohhhooooooo!!!

kokola95 says:


Technoloay says:

Yea! It has been 4 months since they announced it but still waiting..

Yes Path Please. That and Nike + are the only things I am missing that don't have a 3rd party replacement or official app.

max_blunk says:

Yes, nike running+ too!

And ultraviolet on the flixster app.

BK-one says:

DAMN. .... Would be great if instagram came out before the release of the 1520. I am not abandoning 6tag, but that would be great for 1520 commercials to promote the phone and ecosystem to future WP owners.

adrian1338 says:

yes - because in a 2 minute clips it is essential to say "instagram avaiable" to promote Nokia and WP :)

Actually, yes it is.

dalydose says:

It isn't. In fact it reinforces how long we wait for such things.

slap0rama says:

I have been using 6 sec and its an amazing substitute for Vine. I'll still use it even after this one drops but I'll check this one out as well.

I'mOk says:

hell yea keep it comin' son

Sulslim says:

For Windows 8.1 ???

iGeorge23 says:

YES. Now what about Official Instagram AND Mint!?

B_Sack says:

Instagram is coming by the end of the month supposedly.  Mint is supposed to have a release by the end of the year, so hopefully that is still the case.

q21701 says:

Check the news feed. There just was an article about an official beta starting for both Win8 and WP8 for

StevePT says:

Which I signed up for and have yet to hear anything back... 

BK-one says:

U know what games, I love to see on WP8? The infinity blade series. Random, i know.

jrnag24 says:

With Xbox achievements

SocalTouch says:

PvZ 2, Temple Run 2, Candy Crush

Flagz says:

Candy Crush with achievments would fly like hotcakes with wings and muscles (unlikely though)


Jack Larson1 says:

I'd love to see GTA IV and 5 on WP too. IOS has all the gtas.

but IOS can keep all those so-called'freemeium' +IAP apps, with the exception of asphalt 8 and qonqr I guess. (they aren't plagued with ads and are not PTP.)

sicnus says:

Spelling official is tricky & hard...

London Jr says:

+1 it obviously eludes many of us...

VernonEL says:

Hehe, you're not the only one that noticed that...

xankazo says:

LOL, I didn't notice.

rockstarzzz says:

There is no "I" in the team and we are offical WPCentral team. 

Okay may be there is only 1 "I" in the team.

SoullessOnyx says:

Hope it runs on the HTC 8S.

MikeSierras says:

Now for the Snapchat :)

MilkyTee says:

Will probably still stick with 6sec, thank you very much.

TMavC5 says:

Awesome. Luv Vine....

Micah Dawson says:

Woo! There are some vine specific features that haven't made it to 6sec so I am excited to see them

That being said, 6sec is amazing so I am ready to see if vine can have the same fluidity.

kinaton says:

Snapchat, instagram, bbm and that's about it :)

jabz9 says:

Gonna stick with rudy, but I'll give this a try

pouria_wpcir says:

When the application is visible?

پس کی برنامه قابل مشاهده میشه؟

DMuela says:

I bought 6Sec a while ago.. but right now they show me some ad's! tha's it not right... so i will use vine official app instead

dreonedon says:

It won't let me download it

pattayo_ib says:

It's just not live yet.

tbkern466 says:

Can Rudy tackle an ESPN app? I have major issues with both the Scorecenter and Nokia ESPN hub apps.

wetworker says:

I'm getting errors trying to download it.

pattayo_ib says:

No. It's just not live yet.

B_Sack says:

Even if you stick with 6sec (like I will be), you should still download and login to the official Vine app.  If these companies see lots of dowloads/use of their app, they and other developers are more likely to bring more and more apps to WP.

6sec unlike 6tag, it doesn't offer more features than what the official application already does. On the other hand, 6tag does the job better.

mesbahamine says:

I can sleep in peace now :)

avigyan says:

Hurry up Instagram. Getting official apps on the platform really adds momentum. People from other platforms keep telling me that WP does not have Instagram as an official app. I hate to hear that. Bring it on folks!

I love when they say that cause I have a chance to show them 6tag and how different it is from there official app as well as the WP features to 6tag

luk3ja says:

If they add the DISGUSTING shadow under the nav bar like they did in the recent Twitter update...I will kick and I will SCREAMMM!!

DennisvdG says:

It looks so ugly I know!!

Montpbm says:

Finally! Instagram Your Turn!

tbonenga says:

NEST app please.

rahul4aug says:

Awesome.. Now where is instagram....

curly722 says:

=D < my face all day today cuz of this

ojo otter says:

Instagram tommorow! Haha I'm just wishing. Probably will need Carrier update...*sarcasm* :( least its coming!!!! :)

I think I will stick with 6sec, just because I want to support the man who helped us get through hard times.

Clodderes says:

I'm using 6sec at the moment. But glad that the official app is released

deloa84 says:

Awesome. Another win for Windows Phone.

1jaxstate1 says:

Hopefully Win8 will be coming soon.

MDak280 says:

Awesome! Can't wait for the official instagram app. Hopefully snapchat joins the party soon. With those two I will no longer need to use third party apps (Rudy's are great but I prefer official apps)!

donkhalil18 says:

Downloading now!

KKRLessey says:

Yessss!!!! Instagram next!

TimGeo says:

Won't let me download

Kreblon says:

Looks like it's live a mere 2 minutes later. Just worked for me.

Okay we got vine ready to be downloaded, now where are the other line ups at the 1020 announcement apps like path and flipboard, waiting for those apps seems like forever since both dont have any thirdparty Client to fill the void.

Sarang68 says:

Downloading now

Kreblon says:

Looks like it's live now. Just started installing.

Jas00555 says:

Just downloaded it

avigyan says:

Just downloaded it. The link is live now.

You can download it now

DMuela says:


Voxophone says:

Not in my region..? California isn't accepted?

cruisezero says:

Just cali

mikeeemm says:

Looks like it's wp8 only, please let wrong

Charles Wang says:

Installed, but won't let me sign in ... claims bad credentials.

JonnyTiney says:

I get this problem too Dx

mevalmvm says:

I am proud to be a windows phone user and very very happy that i choose windows over ios n android... I was a Symbian user... Nokia is just awesome

Not available in my region #Chicago

mevalmvm says:

Try downloading now...its live

Rich, now the link is live!!!!!

rpm5101 says:

Laggy. Doesn't allow to disable AutoPlay on Vines. Very few options. Another bad port to WP8. Sticking with 6sec.

I don't think any of the official Vine apps have the option to disable autoplay. Probably wrong about that though.

No. U'r right! No option to disable auto play on any platform.

rpm5101 says:

I never said any "official" app does, but its annoying and can be disabled in 6sec so I'll stick with that. :)

Nice an official Vine, now we need a official Snapchat

MDak280 says:

I get an error code when trying to download from the WPC app. Also I can't find it in the WP8 store when I search.

sumton says:

it looks ugly !! thats for sure

walter1832 says:

That's what she said.

TiLoBrown says:

But she forgot about it 6 seconds later

sumton says:

im sure she will say the same thing about your thoughts

blackhawk556 says:

I signed up for the beta and nothing yet. Anybody received a message about being accepted to participate in the beta for mint??

Well, that takes care of "V" in my apps list. Now I just need "X " & "Z" apps.

Charles Wang says:

Don't have any "X", but "Z" I have Zomato and Zinio?

Nitaino says:


h_portal says:

It gives me 895a0194 error :( 

EDIT: It just started downloading :D 

turn off the wifi and let it download via phone network.  Same thing happened to me.

rjohn05 says:

I get a sign in error when trying to sign in with my twitter account

Amir Yari says:

not available yet ...

mtmt88 says:

Have no desire to download the official app. sticking with 6sec until it'll no longer be supported.

TiLoBrown says:

Download and delete. The more official apps are downloaded the better it looks for the platform

Vine official app sux 6sec spoiled us too much. Only the Video preview is better in the official app compared To 6sec

ejlee072006 says:

Another WP8 only DOWNLOAD..

Aryan Angel says:

Finally I can upload 6 sec long videos without having to pay $3.

shaggydave says:

Who gives a crap! Go 6secs all day!!! :-) its cool with the support an all. But its too dam late. Sorry vine!

Download it just so we keep getting first party apps....

Deaconclgi says:

I agree. I don't use Vine but I just installed it.

DJCBS says:

The only thing better in the official one is the tools to create the Vine. Everything else is better in 6sec (not to mention it's likely Rudy will replicate those tools soon)

shaggydave says:

Now gives snap chat! Cause I don't care about the official instagram! We have 6tag!! :-):-)

ruddevil says:

Got it installed! Now what?

bitwise says:

Its not so smooth. Havent tried the upload feature... Good enough for version 1.0

Tim McMahon says:

Just downloaded it and so far I like it. 6sec deleted.

Izzmox says:

Lots of bugs and glitches.

kinaton says:

Such as username not found, and followers/following etc done via 6sec don't show up in vine

RodimusMajor says:

It keeps saying that there's a "network error" every time I try to log in via Twitter...

bssnik says:

Instagram is coming closer.........

Will Fliboard be available soon? I was an iPhone user and now I decided to move Lumia 920 and I love it but miss Fliboard, 6tag and 6 sec work for me well, but good for WP to have official apps!

ricbon says:

yes flipboard is coming by the end of the year, if we have instagram and flipboard 2014 will be a good year for WP8

Hope before the end ends!

Charles Wang says:

If you ever wanted an app to "stop the music" ... Vine does the trick.

Izzmox says:

I think it is safe to say, for the time being, Rudy's 6sec is a lot better.

I don't use it but downloaded it to show big app companies people will download their junk

Rudy all we need is snap chat and a better third party Facebook app so Facebook is supped up on Windows Phone and the app store keeps growing also add multiprofile support to fb app!

theefman says:

Yeah, and while he's at it maybe he can fix Fuse as well.

flame l says:

It's a bit choppy when scrolling on my Nokia Lumia 920.

alky13 says:

Yey finally! Btw bad news for the WP7.x owners, no support for them :|

nanoware says:

Wow i cant belive how slow and slugish it is on my 1020. Unbeliveable....

bdlou says:

Can't sign in to the app with my Twitter account because my password has a / in it.  Confirmed two accounts with a / won't sign in, but an account with no special characters can.  Bummer.

LadyRocki says:

I will download and use it with a secondary account, but 6sec won my heart because Rudy made it happen for us. Still, I'm grateful that Vine is now available for WP.

louisoneal says:

This Vine app proves how awesome Rudy has been in his development of 6sec.

Fndlumia says:

Wp8 ohhh all grown up

Intrepid00 says:

I like how I can't login with my twitter account in the app but I can on the site.

Tafsern says:

Well, it's good looking, fast and smooth (L920) but I'm in love with the possibility to NOT AUTOPLAY like I can on 6sec, so it's still my primary one. 
But I'll keep Vine just in case someone tries to talk crap about WP for not having official apps ;)

Edit: NOT fast and smooth, it's actually laggy. :/

Duduosf says:

Lol I'll do the same with Instagram. People don't seem to care about 3rd party apps =(

trmnrs says:

I was really hoping the official app would fix the issue 6tag and Viner had with seamless looping but I guess not... I'll probably just stick with 6tag except for making Vines because the ghost feature is really useful!

Duduosf says:

That awkward moment when you realise that Rudy is more competent than an entire company.
Next in line for the K.O.: Instagram.

dreonedon says:

I will have both of each its good to support official apps in the store more will come by the masses

kinaton says:

Interesting that followers via 6secs isn't found using vine. Even though logged in

kwajr says:

Now I can hang with the cool kids who gives a f

jlynnm350z says:

Lol, wish I was cool. I'm not even gonna try

theroyboy44 says:

Its ridiculous how much better 6sec is. It had a higher resolution so everything isn't huge, prettier and doesn't have lag!!!! This app is soo laggy and why don't you have the option of making the top bar green. More respect to Rudy.


What is the point of this app now that Instagram does videos as well?

Micah Dawson says:

Instagram still is primarily photo oriented. Vine is way more interesting because it forces people to be more creative in 6 secs. Most instagram videos are of drunken idiots. Or concerts.

btbam91 says:

Holy wow this app sucks. Sluggish as all hell! 6sec it is!

flygeani says:

6sec still the best,this one has a lot of frames!

Where's my disable autoplay option??  :'(
Guess I'll stick with 6sec for a while..

Very happy to see official apps coming to the store

jlzimmerman says:

Now Pinterest, please............

QilleRz says:

Yeah ! More and more official app coming to WP8. Even though I didn't use Vine, but still happy to hear this news. Cheers :D

Flavio76 says:

same here...but will download and use this damm thing

Sean D. says:

Sorry... but some of you all are like those little girls on "my sweet 16" or whatever it is... get something new, and all that matters is what's next or why did it take so long, or everyone else has had this for so long. Grow up.


That said, I have little use for this, but I'm gonna DL it anyway.

And your point is?

Dude this is a site for FANS. F-A-N-S of the plataform, not just informative. If you don't like it, read just the article. Shit. Is it hard to do?

Elih silva says:

Oh my god! finally Vine on windowss phone! another win.... go ahead nokia !!!!!

Capsloc says:

Tried it and it's slow and choppy. Won't switch from 6sec.

kellow87 says:

Woop woop official app

Neo Nuke says:

Nice for a developer to actually use fast resume. It is the API that is least used in windows phone that needs to be used to corral in the Android and apple fans. Few things are worse than instinctively hitting an app you've recently launched on the start screen only to have it boot up to the home screen and atop what you were doing.

Kwonjah12 says:

Windows phone 8 only.. Of course

MSFTfanboy says:

Um, is it just me. Some of the comments seem like the app is not ready but I just downloaded it today from windowsphone store. Its ready for download and so far it looks good!
