Vine announced on Tuesday that its application is now available for Windows Phone devices is now available. Just as as on iOS and Android, you can record videos by tapping your screen, and you can use both the rear and front-facing cameras. Unlike on other platforms, however, you can “pin” specific Vine accounts to your homescreen so that you can quickly see when new content is available.
There’s also an Explore tab for seeing new and popular content from users you might not follow, a channels guide, trends, and the ability to search for friends who are already on the service. It doesn’t appear that the video editing “Time Travel” and Sessions features, which allows you to save a session and resume it later, are available on Windows Phone yet.
Microsoft announced that several new apps are on the way, and we can’t wait for Instagram to launch, too. Considering that Vine is now available, we imagine the competing service will want to get its app out the door as soon as possible.
Editor’s Note: We can’t currently find Vine available on the Lumia 1020 from the Windows Phone Store, but you can manually download it by visiting http://get.vine.co.
