No search?

Right now, the Search button leads you to tools for inviting friends via SMS or e-mail. Without a normal search tool, it can be difficult to find other specific users to follow.

Home feed

As you scroll through your Home feed, videos play automatically while they're onscreen. This makes for a seamless and enjoyable experience.

Unique recording interface

Vine records only while you're touching the screen. This means you can tap quickly, let go, move to another scene, and tap again to record. This can make for some really creative 6-second cuts.
