Vine has gone and created a second Vine app, Vine Kids. The app came about from a conversation during a meeting where one of Carolyn Penner’s, Head of Communications and Marketing, colleagues was talking about how much his two year old loved vine, but he wished there was a more kid friendly variant. That sprung up the idea and Vine Kids was born during hack week at the company. Now there is a dedicated kid friendly variant of Vine.
My initial thoughts of how this would turn into a trolls dream app were quickly squashed when I discovered the app contains handpicked animated cartoon character Vine’s and not a random collection of Vine’s from general people. That should put many parents minds at ease. They even made the app as simple as possible where you only can swipe left or right to see the next Vine and tap on it to play it.
The Vine Kids app is free on the iTunes store and is compatible on any iOS device running iOS 7 or newer. Sadly, no mention of future Android support was mentioned, but I bet if this one picks up popularity then it will come. Lets just hope it doesn’t take as long as it took for Vine to find its way to Android.
