Perhaps it's the new freedom away from the Nokia Store and Microsoft that's encouraging developers to get cracking again for Symbian - but I was heartened to see Vine for Symbian pop up in the AppList Store today. It's a fully functionning client too, you'll have hours of fun browsing round and watching the six second Vine video clips, liking and re-sharing, etc.
Explore a world of beautiful, looping videos. Vine experience is available now on Symbian. This is full featured (except video uploading) Vine client for Symbian devices.

Here's a walkthrough:
I first discovered Vine's availability through the AppList store; (right) as with Gravity before it, Vine is commercial software that's administered via a registration scheme online (i.e. totally separate to Nokia/Microsoft etc.) Once paid up (it's only 2 Euros), your email account is held online on a server and checked by the application if you ever need to reinstall etc.
Of course, you'll also need to log into Vine with your account in the usual way; (right) logged in and starting to browse vines....
Tapping any static thumbnail (or swiping right) brings up/animates the vine, with performance fine on the small Symbian resolution devices, as you might expect.
Here's one I liked - a stop motion video of a leaf decaying...
You can also use other aspects of Vine, including searching for users and keywords/tags...
Good stuff. You can find this initially in AppList on your device or here on the web.
