Vine is a hugely popular social network that lets users share short videos with one another. Combined with its tight integration with its parent company, Twitter, Vine has introduced a whole new brand of entertainment to the online mix. So, how do you get it on BlackBerry? Easy - through the Amazon Appstore.

Step 1: Install and log into the Amazon Appstore

Go to the Amazon Appstore download page in your BlackBerry browser (http://www.amazon.com/getappstore). Tap the "Download the Amazon Appstore" button. The Downloads window should pop up asking you where you want to save it and what the filename should be; just tap Save in the top-right, then tap the file when it's done downloading. If the download window isn't there, tap the overflow menu button in the bottom-right (three little dots), and tap Downloads.

After installation, open the Amazon Appstore, enter your Amazon e-mail and password, and tap the "Sign in with my Amazon account" button. If you don't have an Amazon account, tap the "Create account" button and follow the steps. 

Vine for BlackBerry

Step 2: Download and install Vine

Tap the magnifying glass in the top-right of the Amazon Appstore, and type Vine into the search box. It should pop up in the results below; just tap the Install button to get downloading. You'll have to tap another Install button after that, and confirm app permissions to complete installation.

Step 3: Open and log into Vine

Tap the Vine icon in your home screens to open it. Log in with your Twitter credentials, and you're good to go!

 

Keep in mind that I haven't been able to use the camera to actually record Vines on the Z30, and general performance may be choppier than you'd like, but it's still passable.

Also for those of us wanting a native solution, #Whine will be releasing very soon!

Good work :)

I like how the write-up says, "How to get Vine", yet it says you can't record... Aren't there already vine viewers available? haha. What a joke. Whine is gonna be sweet

I got snapchat yesterday. It was buggy, worked for one snap, now the camera doesn't work. These android apps are NOT good enough to use instead of the native experience.

All kidding aside ,I just took a peek in BB world and noticed that BBM now has a rating of 3 Stars.This really is annoying as BB is depending on BBM ,going forward.Enterprise ect.Tempted to start a thread in the Forums,this is unacceptable.

Eh. Not really there's not another platform out there that gives you apps from multiple markets plus we have amazing devs that are working very hard to bring the most wanted 3rd party apps that the big companies are to ignorant to bring to the platform natively.

BlackBerry10 is awesome and the devs we have make it even more so.

Where are you located? I can give you a list of carriers in the US in terms of when the 10.2.1 update is coming. (They skipped 10.2 to get 10.2.1 instead)

Whine will be released soon. It's a native app for Vine. :)

Simon, have you tried the Mobogenie App store?

jchavealot

Why would I not be able to download the Amazon app store? I click it and nothing happens.

BB10orEffOff

Clicking it in the CB10 app didn't work for me either. Just post the url into the browser manually, works fine from there

You have to hold it down and the open it in browser and the side option pops up

As someone who's on the Whine beta wait for it it will be better than Vine.

Now for the likes of today, it's a great opportunity for carriers to be pushing out update, and promote BlackBerry, then customers won't get frustrated with their BlackBerry devices. so I do believe that the carriers have massive impact on the sale of devices they want to sell and wants costumers to buy, , expecially if the buyers are not smartphone savy or unsure of what device they're after , so that would once again shows how Vodafone UK is somehow anti BlackBerry and would be happy to see the downfalls of such company.

Z berry are platforms of choice!

still waiting for Native solution, so Whine is that one!

Camera not working on my Q5 either... all else seems good.

Hey Simon - I downloaded Vine yesterday on my Z30 (after installing 10.2.1 and the Amazon app store), and I've been able to record video without any issues. Works great actually.

Guys,why my British Q10 can't receive ota in my local country China?

Posted via CB10

buylocal_getaBB

What sim do you have currently in the phone? won't matter if you bought in the UK if your using a Chinese sim

Posted via CB10

zvais

Thanks for replying. My sim is China Unicom with WCDMA while my phone was bought from a shopper online so I don't know if the Q were truly bought in UK. It shows vodafone's brand when booting. Ps: If my English have any grammar problems...

Posted via CB10

buylocal_getaBB

Don't worry, your English is better than my mandarin.

Quick look didn't show any Chinese carriers as pushing the update yet, so you might be in for a wait. In that case you might want to try Sachesi, the latest leak is better than the official OTA release in some ways (lost my damn porsche design clock and face recognition in camera app)

Posted via CB10

zvais

I think my situation is similar to down stair lady's.
There are many users using Hong Kong Q10s have been received OTA though their carriers are China Unicom or China Mobile.
After all,China, a incredible country, haven't been issued any BB10 drives yet so that it's none of the carriers business.
One thing I care is whether I should buy a Vodafone UK sim for catching OTA.
Thanks and happy Chinese New Year!春節快樂!

Hi, I think you'll get it when Vodafone UK pushes the update, regardless of the SIM you have on. And going by this list (http://crackberry.com/full-list-carriers-have-released-blackberry-1021-s...), I don't think Vodafone has rolled it out yet.

I've an unlocked Verizon Q10 and I never got the 10.2.0 update, although my carrier (Airtel India) pushed it ages ago. Like right now, I'm yet to get the 10.2.1 update as it has not been rolled out on Verizon Q10 models...

zvais

I think so. So, you are in tragedy....But whether you tried a version sim. I think I should learn how to use Sachesi.

I was able to use the camera to record a vine on my z10.

Jaguarzone@gmail.com

I downloaded vine on my Z10 with no issues and I can use the camera to record. I'll use whine when it comes out because I'd rather have something native, but the vine apk I used has no issues.

I downloaded last night from Amazon.

Slow and crashes.

Will wait for native knock off.

Can you do another post on how to install Instagram, Netflix, SnapChat, and Skype? That will not only help avoid redundant forum posts, and when people google search those they will find the answers (maybe help people learn that BlackBerry does have access to these apps).

tdaye

Install the 1Mobile app,or Snap, or Amazon app store and then search and install those apps.

My Goodness since US carriers elected to bypass 10.2 you would think they wouldn't have us here in the US waiting so long for 10.2.1! I think the US is conspiring against BlackBerry to try to really hurt sells of BlackBerry Devices in the US!

I thought Whine was a joke, although I have never heard of Vine so who knows. What's wrong with youtube?

Keep The Faith  BlackBerry Q10 

JAS0NB0URNE

No, Whine is an app being developed by Knobtviker (who has also helped Snap2Chat and iGrann with video upload coding).

Whine/Vine better than YouTube, it's a social networking app.

iFlyGuy

when I tap to download im being asked for an address and contact info. I am not from the US so I do not have any idea what address info to use. in short, I am not getting to download anything from the appstore.

I was able to load a video on vine with my Z10

aft1981

Meh.

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't get the point of it. Really, what's the point. Just another fad.

It's a sad state of affairs if the general populous only has an attention span of a few seconds. We are humans, not gold fish.

@Simon. Why are you pushing the amazon store? You should at the very least mention "alternatives" just in a short bracketed sentence after.

tdaye

Goodnight point. 1Mobile has better apps and I have much better luck with them working properly. 1Mobile and Snap are the way to go.

Posted via CB10

drizzt09

I personally don't like 1mobile. I prefer snap and aptoide. And here is why we need mention of more... since we all have preferences and so will someone that is new to this.

OK it's late, but one question, I installed this and the first time I used it, worked perfectly, ever since, it's too large and I cannot navigate through the app. Anyone else experiencing this problem, or is there a fix, or update I need?

Laggy not large

I got the android app, it works very well but it crashes after a few minutes. When i leave the app it goes to the top of the feed.
Whine isn't working well, I'm sticking with the apk version
