Confession time: I have never really gotten Vine. Yeah, I get the idea behind it and all that but its just one of those social networks that I’ve just never really got my head around. That’s fine, my life doesn’t feel any less complete. When I did try out the Vine app for iOS a few times there was one really annoying issue with the app which was that I could not create a Vine post from any videos that happen to be residing on my iPhone at the time. I had to shot the Vine video right then, right there and if I didn’t or couldn’t, it couldn’t be published. Seemed pretty limiting to me.
That seems to have gone away now in the latest update for the Vine app for iOS. The update, which of course is free and available now in the App Store, allows you to import a video from your iPhone, edit it down to the 6 seconds and post it on Vine. Finally!
