Ciao, Instagram: Vine Becomes #1 Most Downloaded Social App on Google Play Store

Vine for Android is now the top downloaded Social App on the Google Play Store, putting Instagram, the previous winner, out to pasture.

Vine was released on iOS last January, and the six-second clip making social app quickly rose to popularity in the Social App realm. The app has only been available for Android for a week, and has already climbed to the top of the most frequently downloaded apps on the Google Play Store, coming in at #4. Although the Android release lacked the use of the front-facing camera and numerous bugs, Android users are utilizing the Vine app nonetheless.

Vine is expected to grow in popularity, as it becomes more used and integrated into existing social networking platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook.

If you haven’t tried out Vine yet, head on over to the Google Play Store to give Vine for Android a whirl.
