Vine boosts desktop features

New web features make Vine more than just a mobile based app.

By Cbr Rolling Blog

Vine, the short video creating and sharing app, has taken steps to make the desktop experience of its service more enjoyable, with a rare sidestep away from its mobile based app.

Most apps, such as Instagram, are best viewed and used on smartphones and tablets, as the desktop versions don’t offer all of the same capabilities. Vine, however, has added new features to its desktop version, for those looking to enjoy the app on their laptops and PCs.

One of the new features allows users to scroll through profiles and a user’s history, whereas previously you were only able to view Vines using URL links rather than browsing the website.

Vine has also introduced TV Mode, a feature that enables a full screen view of Vines when users click the TV icon in the upper right hand corner.

This new move from Vine could lead the way for more mobile based apps to explore the web and enable more desktop based features.
