Over the weekend we got a look at the upcoming iGrann app for BlackBerry 10 that will finally bring Instagram users some relief. As if that wasn't cool enough, it appears that another app is in the works for the popular video sharing network Vine as well. 

A very quick preview of Whine turned up on Youtube and was posted to the forums. As it turns out the app is being developed by forums member knobtviker and is in the very early beta stages. Vine doesn't offer a public API so some magic has to be worked on the backend of things to get it all working.

It's still up in the air whether Whine will actually make it's way to BlackBerry World, but as knobtviker notes, it will be available to sideload regardless so that's a good thing.

Check out the quick preview video above then cruise by the forums for more discussion.

Will this be permitted by Vine themselves?

People can finally start Whining, or stop whining. Errr nevermind.

I know... they could call all these apps 'Whine'... I'd be their second best customer!!

Thor would be the first: "I just can't lead for shit and that's how I destroyed the company and its wealth and it's reputation ... by sucking at execution".

Perhaps yes if it's a free app right?

First thoughts.... more like 2nd thoughts!!! stop trying to be cool with your first thoughts.

anon5814103

Not, or was my first though. Why would I claim it to be my second thought?

Hopefully BlackBerry don't pull the plug like they did for the WhatApp dev...

pmccartney

I think that happened because the real WhatsApp made their app available in BW.
It might happen to this App Dev but likely, only if Vine actually gives us their official app.

morpho4444

Could you elaborate on this? I don't know about it

dejanh

When BlackBerry 10 launched an independent dev wrote an open source version of WhatsApp called OpenWhatsApp. The app soon got pulled by BlackBerry because WhatsApp decided to release their app and BlackBerry would not allow a clone to coexist with it in BlackBerry World.

If this is the case. At least now we might get the official apps.

The whatsapp situation is sad, but they charge yearly fee so it was directly competing and taking profit away from the real app I'd suppose.

Posted via CB10

Brandon Orr

Because open whatsapp was free*

Lawl. iGrann... sounds too close to granny. They couldn't think of better app names? xD

Signed via my weapon of choice, Z10.

Instagroan....I like that...and fitting, too. I like Instagarbage because I just don't see the point....C'est la vie

Yes this looks very promising from BlackBerry!

Also iGrann also needs to be awesome... so that Instagram users can come to BlackBerry. :)

"I don't need instagram. I have iGrann." I don't really care about Vine, I just need an instagram app to keep my siblings impressed and jealous of my phone. They all moved away from BlackBerry to Android while me and my mom stayed the course. My lil brother keeps begging for my phone.

Let's keep our hope up for iGrann.

Where there's a will there's a way - and there's a way around everything! Thanks in advance to the devs for helping to fill the app void. I too think the name is fitting, can't wait to give it a whirl and support you guys! Cheers!

Why is the green greener on the Z10 than on the Q10?

Posted via CB10

rlgwood

Because the Z cost more $$$ green.

The Cue costs more than the Zed.

Instaberry is a good name for it. Let's rumble. I'm not a hard core social network just standard normal person. Haha haha. Software stability I'd more important than this but It depends on people need.

Why post this stuff when no one knows if this or ig will make it to bbw, it just falls in line with empty promises like from BlackBerry....getting sick of it

DPanacci

Cool and all but why would people move to blackberry to use imitation apps when iPhone or Android users have the real things

If it works as good as the official one, who cares? As long as it's fluid and native that's all that matters in my opinion.

Hopefully iGrann & Whine will see the light of day. That would be a huge relief on the app gap.

So funny they chose that name... because with an indian accent thats how they would pronounce Vine

aahahaha!

brunolovesbrit

I really hope "Vine" won't pull it off.
But, if they didn't on WP why would they do that for BlackBerry?

Whine app? Is that for all the BlackBerry bashes on this site? ;)

Sent from the future on my Z10.

davidmcromano

Sounds like a great app given that it will now allow Blackberry users to use Vine. My only question is, if Vine won't allow it and it will only be accessible via side loading, wouldn't that be useless given that the 10.2 update will allow support of the latest Android Jelly Bean runtime allowing you to be able to side load Vine itself? I might be wrong as I may have misread some articles but figured I'd pose the question regardless.

davidmcromano

I don't mean "useless" per say, but I would hope you'd understand the point I'm trying to make.

Anonymous2039

The fact that it's native is a huge improvement.

Impressive, i am onboard for that.

ankush77

now we have a habit of side loading things ,if we don't get them,innovative bb users

Maxey05

Did they call it "Whine" since people have been winning about it since Vine is not available on BB10... lol

True CANADIAN EH

Who cates about that stuff I just downloaded the 100% legit from my carrier, lo g awaited BlackBerry os10 update. And the secondary apsps update as well. 200+ mb of smooth operation. It's no iOS 7 but it seems more organic now. More fluid. Well See how stable it is but none of the typical problems yet and better life is much improved. Downloaded it 5 hrs ago still have 80% juice in the battery. I would line better Colora and sounds though. And a work around so that my notifications LED app doesn't need to be left running.

LOL at the name !! "Whine" ....

An app named "whine" in an article in which Instagram is also mentioned? Oh, this is tooo easy....let the play-on-words fly

Just to tease you all, SnapMate is currently in progress. It won't be available in App World, after discussion with Alec Saunders via twitter.

I'll make some more info public once I get further along in development

Maal628

Guess side loading will have to do.

I forgot to mention, SnapMate is a SnapChat client

You should start a new thread about your app and maybe post some updates, screen shots or videos. :) looking forward to it.
