Vine App Updated – Front Facing Camera Support, “Mention” Button Added

Posted in Apple News, Apps, iPhone on 30/04/2013 by Chris Hauk


Popular tiny video sharing app Vine has been updated today. Front-facing camera support has been added, allowing you to switch cameras in mid-Vining. You can now identify people in the video by pressing the “mention” button when publishing the post.


The app’s people search function has also been improved, allowing you to find friends via their Twitter handles. And of course there are the usual patches fixing crashes, and the squashing of minor bugs.

The app is available FREE for the iPhone in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
