Vine app will shut down and become Vine Camera on January 17th

Vine app will shut down and become Vine Camera on January 17th

In a statement that Vine recently released, the company reiterated the app formerly known as Vine will now be known as Vine Camera.

Twitter's plans to close social video service Vine back in October were temporarily reevaluated, but the platform's last days have finally come. The wider network created around the vines will be gone.

With an official end date for the popular app, we thought we'd share some of our favorite Vines from the past - including one or two that everyone in North Jersey can relate to. Most importantly, though, "Once the Vine Camera is live, you will no longer be able to download your Vines from the app". "The Vine Camera will allow you to make 6.5 second looping videos and post them to Twitter", the statement read. However, users will not be able to do any of the other things that they can now do with the Vine application.

On January 17th, expect an update to transition the Vine app to Vine Camera, and until then, start downloading all of your super creative 6 second videos or else risk losing them for good. Vines can be downloaded to your phone, or sent to you in an archive via email. And Vine users can download their Vines via the app (until January 17) or the Vine website.

Those who choose to download their vines also receive their captions as well as number of likes, comments and re-vines per post.
