The official Vine app for Windows Phone 8 made its debut this morning.
Vine, a mobile service for shooting and sharing six-second looping videos, has already amassed more than 40 million registered users.
The new Windows Phone app will have you creating videos in no time. The app lets you record using front and rear cameras, then preview clips, add comments, and share them to Vine, Twitter (which owns Vine), or Facebook. The videos you post on Vine appear both on your profile and on the timelines of your followers.
The app includes recording features like a viewfinder overlay grid and something Vine calls the "ghost" tool, which make it easier to frame shots and create stop-motion animation. You can also use the app to watch popular videos, browse thematic channels, and search for specific clips via keyword or tag.
The Windows Phone version of the app also makes nice use of Live Tiles. When your pin the app to your Start screen you'll see when followers post a new video. You can also pin individual Vine members and channels as Live Tiles for faster access.
