Vine App Set to Become Vine Camera on January 17

Popular video tool to transition into camera app

The end is almost here for Vine, the short-form video app. Vine will become Vine Camera on January 17, although its content will survive in an archive.

Via Vine:

On January 17 the Vine app will become the Vine Camera. We will notify you through the app before this happens. The Vine Camera will allow you to make 6.5 second looping videos and post them to Twitter, or save them to your camera roll in a logged out state. You will not be able to do any of the other things you can currently do with the Vine app. Once the Vine Camera is live, you will no longer be able to download your Vines from the app.

In January, we will transition the website to an archive of Vines that were created through the Vine app, so you can continue to browse Vines. We’ll do our best to notify you of any changes to the archive.
