Vine Is #1 Free App

Six months after its now-famous acquisition, Vine is the #1 free app in Apple’s App Store. The app, acquired in mid-october before its initial launch, has had its share of controversy, having been pulled over adult content and thereafter relaunched. But for all the hiccups  the app has not failed to generate mountains of visual content, viral media (with its new trending hashtag section), and has been used in unique ways by brands and celebrities alike. Vine’s closest competition in the social sphere thus far is Snapchat, but it’s important to note that Vine is only iOS compatible at the time of writing, which means that even more growth into the Android field should be expected.
