New - Vine for Symbian!

Published by at

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.

From the AppList description:

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.

Hopefully the AppList Store is working out for you all. See here just in case you haven't already got this installed or if this is new to you. Also, if you have custom firmware installed, make sure you tick the option in settings to show 'unsigned' applications, you'll see extra applications!
