Vine Is Twitter’s Bet on an Easy Video-Sharing App

Twitter has just leapfrogged everyone in the mobile, social video space with Vine, a video-sharing app that’s actually easy to use.

The company has introduced Vine, a new app that allows you to share six-second looping video creations with your friends on social networks. Vine also officially announced it has been acquired by Twitter, though it by no means is a Twitter-exclusive experience.

We took the app for a spin and found it incredibly simple and enjoyable to use. Instead of the standard video-sharing experience, you record videos by holding your finger on the screen. By lifting your finger, you can momentarily pause the recording, making it possible to create a miniature narrative out of multiple scenes. The app does all the stitching automatically for you, editing together a six-second movie with a series of jump cuts. The results often end up looking more like an animated GIF with audio than traditional, single-shot videos you see shared on apps like Viddy or Socialcam.
