Vine already sending out promo e-mails to combat Instagram video

0. phoneArena 21 Jun 2013, 16:24 posted on

Yesterday, Instagram announced an update to its popular photo sharing app that adds micro-video to the service. It expands on Vine's 6-second time limit (which itself was an expansion of the 5secondfilms idea started in 2008), and Instagram also added a couple of other interesting features to the micro-video idea. It seems that Twitter might have gotten a bit worried, because just a couple hours after that announcement, promo e-mails for Vine started making the rounds...

What Vine forgets to tell you is how horrible their Android app is. Basically unusable.

Yeah it's true. If Instagram Video comes out full featured and with no bugs it's game over. Vine's app in iOS is great, but it's debut on Android has many missing features and bugs/crashes out on many different phones.

I don't doubt that Vine is good, but their falling start could cost them dearly.

Instagram video on Android is pretty good. The only thing it's missing (which is a fairly big thing) is the Cinema image stabilization.
