Vine Adds Support for Mentions and Front-Facing Camera

NewImageTwitter's popular six-second video sharing app Vine has received its first major update, adding support for the iPhone's front-facing camera and Twitter mentions in posts and comments.
You can now shoot with the front-facing camera. When creating a post, tap the button in the bottom left corner to try the front-facing camera. You can switch back and forth between the regular and front-facing camera as many times as you want.

Vine now supports mentions, so you can tag people in your post. Users who are mentioned will receive a notification in Activity. To mention a user, type @username and select the name among the suggestions you’ll see. See the screenshot below for an example — when I type @chris, I see suggestions for Chris Fry, Chris Hardwick and Christofer Drew. When I select Chris Hardwick, his Vine profile will automatically link in my post’s caption.
Vine can be downloaded free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Tried, sucks. Nothing interesting outside 5 Vine Picks. all the rest is teenagers doing **** with their phones.


This.

I haven't found a good way to browse other Vine clips. Yes, you can use the "popular now" or "trending now" features but 95% of those are kids acting stupid or adults acting like stupid kids. Why can't I browse at least a selection of recent Vine clips?

The insane cache size that vine takes up is a bit ridiculous. The fact that there is no way to clear your app without deleting and reinstalling. Currently vine is taking up over 600mb on my phone. That seems a bit ridiculous.


Yes, this. Terrible app design. My Facebook cache gets huge too.
