We’ve become a society of noses in screens, if we don’t have our nose in our phones we have them in our tablets. If we don’t have our noses in our tablets, we have them in our laptops. Now Twitter is aiming to grab your children’s noses by releasing Vine Kids. Vine is a social video messaging application that records short videos that people can share and comment on. Vine is taking the same concept and in this case, attempting to make it kid-friendly.
Vine Kids gives children a fun way to watch Vines. Through adorable animated characters, kids can watch hand-selected videos that are appropriate for a young audience. Vine Kids is simple to use. Just swipe left or right to see the next Vine, and tap the screen to hear quirky sounds.
Right now it looks like a collection of fun and funny shorts that kids can swipe through at will. There is no camera recording so your child can’t record a Vine and post. It seems like an interesting idea and perhaps Vine is hitting on the short attention spans of toddlers. We’ll see how it’s received by parents in the wild though and we’ll be waiting for commentary from our good readers as well.
Vine Kids is currently iOS only, and can be downloaded at the link below. Let us know what you think of Vine Kids in the comments below or on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
