Vine Updated with Additional Camera Features, New Channels, And 'Revining'

Following the recent debut of Instagram video, Twitter has updated Vine to version 1.3, adding a number of new organizational features that are designed to aid in content discovery. Vine now includes 15 channels in the Explore section plus popular and rising Vine videos.

The app has also been updated with new camera tools, offering a grid view, a focus button to allow users to select the area of the video to focus on, and a ghost button that saves transparent frames from the previous shot. Vine posts can now be "revined" with a single tap, and protected accounts are also available.

They just ruined it for me, now my feed is FILLED with everyone revining every stupid Vine they come across.

There's no way to disable this so I'm stuck with seeing all the crap I don't want to see and I have to flip through 20 pages of revines to find the people I follow.

I surely hope they allow this to be disabled or they just ruined a good thing for me.

Taking their unique art direction and creating something very fresh with it - a really nice alternative to FB's Instagram -- definitely going to keep using it!

I never paid attention to Vine until the recent Facebook-related stories, but I tried the app and it's very cool! The short time window and easy multi-shot editing (so easy you wouldn't even call it "editing") are really unique. I wish it well, and am tempted to start making my own. Glad to see it's getting updates.

I have never uploaded anything for vine, but some of the people there are so clever. It's really cool.

super happy about ios 7 support. It saddens me that facebook could just destroy a much better app due to instagrams exposure. i much prefer vine for video capture. :o
