The Vine app for Android may yet be some time
If you’re waiting for Twitter’s Vine app to hit the Android platform then there’s some news today that may disappoint you a little. It seems a Vine job posting has been spotted to recruit new Android developers. Although that may sound promising in one aspect, as at least we know the Android version is in the loop, it could be that The Vine — Make a Scene Android app may yet be some time.
The free Vine app on iOS has certainly made an impression with many hooked on this Twitter short video app. It shot quickly up the App Store charts after release and it was then we first wondered how much longer it would take before we saw the Android version of the app. Following this we then told about an update for the iOS Vine app and a new age restriction but have had no further news since about an Android offering.
However Vine co-founder Colin Kroll has now tweeted a job posting for 6 people to add to its 3-person developer team and one of these jobs is for a Lead Android Engineer. While this indicates that an app is at least being worked on it doesn’t sound as though it’s too far along if Vine is only just recruiting a Lead Engineer for the project.
Hence it could still be some time before The Vine app for Android hits the Google Play Store but of course we’ll keep an eye on this story and bring you more news as we hear it. Are you waiting for the Android Vine app? As an Android device user do you get fed up with so often having to wait much longer than iOS device users to get apps to your platform?
