Vine arrives in the Amazon Appstore for Android, available to Kindle Fire tabletsAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
After originally launching in the iOS App Store in January and then hitting Android's Google Play Store in early June, video-sharing app Vine has now made its way into a third mobile app storefront. Vine is available for download from the Amazon Appstore for Android, meaning that owners of Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets can begin shooting six-second videos and sharing them with their fellow Viners as well as their Facebook and Twitter accounts. The Vine app in the Amazon Appstore weighs in at 18.1MB in size and requires Android 4.0 or later.
Capturing photos and video with a tablet may be something that some folks look down on, but it's good to see Vine being made available to Kindle Fire owners since they're unable to access the Google Play Store and the regular Vine for Android app. The arrival of Vine in the Amazon Appstore is also notable because there's no official Instagram client available in the shop, so any Kindle Fire owners that are in the mood to get creative and shoot some short videos will turn to Vine to do so.
In other Vine for Android news, the app recently received its second major update in as many weeks. The bump brought the app up to version 1.2 and included new features like front-facing camera support and an upload manager for unsubmitted posts, as well as improvements to the app's speed and UI. Both the Amazon Appstore and Google Play Store versions of Vine for Android can be found at the links below.
