Social video app Vine updated: adds sharing, embedding
Adults-only social video app <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vine/id592447445?mt=8">Vine (free)</a> received an update from Twitter on Friday that now allows direct sharing of videos of any user in one's Vine feed to Twitter and Facebook. The update also adds the ability to embed a video onto web pages, though the process involves sending the code in an email to the user, and adds frames to shared and embedded videos, along with some bug fixes. The <a href="http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/02/06/twitter.copes.with.concerns.about.porn.posts/#PJkjMtlQmTfApmuR.99">controversial app</a> lets users create and upload six-second videos, and was subsequently changed to a 17+ age restriction on the App Store.<br /><br />The app initially ran into trouble over the discovery of <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282209==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/01/28/inability.to.filter.out.pornographic.videos.to.bla me/" rel='nofollow'>shareable pornographic posts</a>, but has opted to go with an older age classification rather than attempt to block adult videos. Users can still block or report profiles if they find something offensive. New in the update is the ability to add a "simple" or "postcard" frame for videos, as well as set a desired width if users want the video to be smaller than the resolution it was originally shot in for faster downloading times.<br />
<br />
Version 1.07 also fixes an issue that could cause the camera to freeze when starting a new recording, resolves a bug that could cause the camera to record without touching the screen, and generally enhances performance.<br />
