Vine, the new app that lets you shoot six-second multi-scene videos, has potential for greatness. But it also has three notable problems:
- You can’t always shoot some tape, leave the app, then come back and shoot more tape on the same video. I’ve gotten this to work a few times, but mostly it fails miserably. Frustrating when you want to work on a long-term project, such as shooting scenes of your commute to work (which I unsuccessfully attempted last night and this morning).
- You seemingly can’t share a video after you’ve initially created it. Bizzarre.
- No Tumblr support. I realize that the app was acquired by Twitter so there’s a business element at play here, but Vines are essentially improved .GIFs, which do remarkably well on Tumblr.
