Vine to release app for Windows Phone later this year, customized experience for Nokia Lumia
Currently only available on iOS and Android devices, popular video sharing app Vine, will release an iteration on Windows Phone due out later this year. The announcement was tucked into launch news of Nokia’s Lumia 1020 smartphone. Other popular applications such as Flipboard and Path will make their debut on Windows Phone in the near future as well.
The Lumia will make use of camera features not currently available in the standard iOS and Android camera apps. All of these built-in features will be available across all downloadable camera applications.
Since first debuting on iOS in January, Vine has skyrocketed in popularity. It only just released an app for Android devices in early June. However, since Instagram introduced video, some have been concerned about Vine’s potential for future growth. By iterating itself onto the Windows Phone platform early, Vine may be able to integrate itself within the user base before Instagram. Instagram has yet to introduce an internally built Windows Phone application and has even admitted that one would not be released “anytime soon.”
Vine has yet to announce an official release date, but says that it should be available later this year.
