I mean…that’s the beauty of Android. Being able to change the way your phone looks and operates.
Awesome of the Week: Vine
This week the application Vine was released for Android. This application which allows you to make looping 6 second videos/gifs with audio had been an iOS exclusive. I had been clamoring for this application for two reasons.
One, I strongly dislike when applications are iOS only. Call me a hater all you want. I dislike feeling like a second-class mobile citizen because a developer didn’t want to make an Android version. Now I can understand if an app doesn’t come over for some functionality reason, much the way Facebook Home & Chat Heads didn’t make it to iOS. A reason like, “Apple doesn’t allow homescreen replacements…" carries a lot more weight to me than, "Apps look more beautiful on iOS, so I didn’t want to develop an Android version.”
Two, I wanted to see what the hype was about. I’ve seen a quite a few screenshots of people sharing their Vine profiles, and Vine posts. (…I don’t know if to call them videos or posts…)
If you follow me on Vine, I’ve only made one Vine. I’m still trying to figure it out. I guess this is how people feel when trying to use Twitter for the first time. I’m sure once I figure it out, I’ll be Vine-ing with the Georges*.

- My reference to “the Georges” was a reference to George of the Jungle because he swung from Vine to Vine and was very profient at it…except when he hit a tree.
