Good news for Windows phone users. Vine, the new short video service from Twitter, has finally arrived in its official avatar for Windows Phone. Users with smartphones based on Microsoft’s OS can now tap and hold the screen to create short, looping videos with sound, use camera tools like grid and ghost (which “help you shoot like a pro”) and essentially can put users in the spotlight with the front-facing camera.
The release of Vine on Windows Phone does not come as a surprise as it was one of the new apps announced during Nokia World at the end of October, along with Flipboard, Temple Run 2, FIFA 14, and Instagram. However, Twitter video-blogging app managed to get ahead of Facebook’s Instagram.
Windows Phone users get some exclusive features such as the ability to pin their favorite accounts to the home screen, which allows for easy and quick access to the same. The app page is now live and can be downloaded right away from the Windows Phone Store.
