After a fairly long wait since the iOS debut, Vine has made its way to Android. Vine allows you to share a 6 second video and offers a unique interface for recording that allows you to actually tell a complex story.
Vine for Android comes with one additional feature over iOS and that is the ability to Zoom. We are hoping they add the “drafts” feature back in that existed in the iOS beta. Drafts allowed you to save partial Vines as a draft so that you could easily add content later before publishing.
Your videos will appear to your followers in the Vine app and you can also post to your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
We have found Vine a little addictive on iOS so give it a try.
You can download Vine for Android via this link.
Its official according to a tweet by T-Mobile the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be carried by the company. The tablet has a 10.1 widescreen display, 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 3 megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, 720p HD video recording, Wi-Fi enabled and Bluetooth 3.0.
What we don’t know is if T-Mobile is selling a Wi-Fi only version or if they are launching it with data service. Also if they are offering data service, will it be 3G or 4G? We have to wait a little longer to find out.
T-Mobile also mentioned in the tweet that we should stay tuned for more information. Hopefully they will give us a release date and pricing of the tablet soon.

I am guessing Facebook missed all the news about the Twitter DickBar as today it appears Facebook has launched their own version. On iOS running the latest Facebook app you are now greeted with a People You May Know bar and also a friend suggestion that changes every time you refresh the stream.
I can see this under the friends tab but to place it on the main stream is just taking up valuable screen space and is annoying. We will let you know more about this lack learning from the past and others and it develops. For now, maybe you can find a few new friends. Picture after the break. Read more
