Vine is now available for iPhone and iPad. A Twitter-owned service, Vine is touted as the best way to see and share life in motion. “Create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way for your friends and family to see,” says Vine Labs.

Vine is a simple social networking app that lets you create short looping videos and share them with the world. Here's an example featuring Ruby, the famous Internet cat.

The app supports unlimited uploads and lets you instantly post videos to Vine, then share to Twitter and Facebook. The developers promise to support even more social networks soon.

You can use Vine to find, follow, and interact with people close to you, as well as explore trending posts, featured hashtags and editor's picks.

The app has already received its first maintenance update. The developers says they’ve fixed a few launch day hiccups.

As a result of the patch, logging in through Twitter is currently more reliable; you can now update your profile photo from your Camera Roll; there’s a new character limit for usernames and bio field; and International keyboards have better support.

Various other bugs that caused crashes have also been fixed.

Vine is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad.

The app requires iOS 5.0 or later and has been fully optimized for the iPhone 5 and the iPad mini. In other words, Vine displays natively on any iDevice.

Vine should not be mistaken with Photovine, a Google-owned service that lets iPhone users ‘plant’ a photo and watch it grow. Photovine aims to build a family of photos connected through a common caption created by people.

Photovine is also free
