Vine Launched for iWatch, Updated for iPhone
The development of this app traces back to June this year when Vine was Apple's pick to introduce video playback in watchOS2, a separate operating system for iWatch launched this September.
Though some might call this OS-app rollout delay minor, there's an explanation for the two-month lag - it's obvious that iWatch is really far from being perfect and not every user is happy with iOS apps souls stuck in another device's body. While some progress has been made to improve the speed and reliability of Vine's watchOS performance, there's little pleasure in watching short videos on a petite screen. Arguably, iWatch was created with more urgent tasks in mind. It's a solid fitness and movement tracker, it's good to have it as an indispensable email notifier, but entertainment on a screen this small seems like pushing too hard.
On a brighter side, Vine also updated its iOS app with a swipe-to-load function, which makes killing time with aimless browsing even easier, as all you have to do is - that's right, swipe left to watch a random related clip, so you can watch cucumber cats pretty much non-stop. Oh, what a beautiful time to live in!
