Vine the mico-video App by Twitter has been launched

Twitter the micro-blogging network have just launched their micro-video app in the iStore. With the new Vine app from Twitter you can shoot and record videos and then share it on Twitter and Facebook. You however have one 6 seconds to get the job done. 140 characters was enough to make Twitter one of the hottest internet destinations. Since each Tweet cannot contain more that 140 characters. If that logic was good enough for words then 6 seconds is good enough for video. Currently only available on iOS devices (iPhone, iPod and iPad), it should be made available to Android users pretty soon.

Vine App by TwitterVine: How does it work
Once you record a video using Vine it looks more like an animated GIF rather than a video. These short videos can be attached to your Tweets and sent out to your Twitter Followers.

1. Go to the App and install it on your device
2. Once installed you will need to sign-in with your Twitter account or via email.
3. Hit the video camera button and press down on the view finder to start recording
4. Release your finger and the recording stops.
5. You now have the option to share your video via a Tweet or on Facebook.

Wallit: The app that lets your write on digital walls in real places



Wallit is an interesting little iOS app that lets you visit places and write on walls. There is an Android app that is also coming soon. This is a kind of augmented reality that you might find really interesting. With Wallitapp you can visit physical places and create a wall. All the other people who are there will then also be able to write on the same wall and you can chat with everyone who has the app and have begun using the wall. The thing about each wall is that it is available to everyone and anyone can read it. To write on a wall however you would need to be there physically.


Wallit: How does it work
You first need to download the app onto your iPhone, iPod Touch or the iPad. You can then visit a place and find the associated wall. lets say you are visiting the 'Golden Gate Bridge'. You can then write on the wall and start a conversation with other people who are present there. So if you are at a stadium you can chat with all the people who support the other team. Will definitely make for very interesting conversation. It works anywhere in the world. Which means with the app you can look up places you are going to visit and see what other people who have already been there have written. The amount of information available however will depend on the number of people using this app. So if it becomes really popular you can expect to search and find some really awesome information. A wall can be created for just about any place. A waterfall, a road, a restaurant and well you get the picture. So go ahead visit a place and see if you can Wallit.
