Whine - The third-party Vine client for BlackBerry 10 is now available

By Bla1ze on 5 Feb 2014 04:58 pm EST

Way back in September we got an early preview of a third-party Vine client for BlackBerry 10 called Whine. Even then, the app looked great but in the time since then, the developer behind it all has worked hard on the app to make it as full featured as possible and finally, after many months of waiting, Whine is now available in BlackBerry World. 

Unlike some of the Vine apps listed in BlackBerry World, Whine is more than a Vine viewer, you can record and upload your vines just as you would with the Vine app on other platforms thanks to it making use of the Vine API. Create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way for your friends and family to see by sharing them on Twitter, Facebook, BBM and more.

The Whine app is available as a free download however, donations to the developer are certainly encouraged and you can do so from right with the app itself by using the donation menu. If you're looking to give it a go, Whine has just gone live on BlackBerry World and is filtering through. If you're not seeing it as of yet or not able to download it, just keep trying. We'll get a complete hands-on look at it over the next day or two for everyone.

Whine - The third-party Vine client for BlackBerry 10 is now available


everybody can officially cross off Vine, Instagram & SnapChat (almost) the list of what BB "doesn't have"... it's in BBWorld now, and Snap2Chat & iGrann are just as good if not better than the real deal besides uploading vids on the latter, and I'm expecting the same here...

nice job native devs!! will be donating 100%

The perception is BB has knock-off apps and not the genuine deal. This does nothing to appeal to mainstream (mass) consumers

Tried downloading it and it said "unable to purchase." might have to wait a while longer for the app to go through.

Awesome! Been anticipating this, congrats for the bbw approval knobtiver

"This app cannot be purchased."

I don't use Vine, but I want to support the dev by donating so I'd like to download it.

“Whine has just gone live on BlackBerry World and is filtering through. If you're not seeing it as of yet or not able to download it, just keep trying.”

The vine app works good if you can get it from the 1 mobile market app which I'm sure every blackberry10 user is useing by now seeing they are running on 10.2.1

The android app is fine, except it tends to cancel out on me multiple times after about 10 mins of using it. So native is kinda better for me

Posted via CB10

Just downloaded :)
Looks pretty good - the videos play pretty smoothly, but have yet to upload any of my own! :D

Swiped from my awesome Dev Alpha B (Z10STL100-1/

Can't get on my Q10 either...says "unavailable for this device"...but again, I have AT&T and they haven't released 10.2.1 update, so I am stuck HOPEFULLY till the 10th as rumors say.

BlackBerry Q10!

I don't have it on mii Q10 either. Sprint is supposed to release 10.2.1 later this month. Hopefully I'll be able to download it then.

Thanks. Vine... now I won't be the one left out. lol. :P thanks dev.

Why not Apollo! It works perfectly without commercials! I swear Apollo gets no love like BlackBerry in the US, people are panzies sometimes!

Keep The Faith  BlackBerry Q10 

Apollo gets no love from me because it doesn't work and has never worked on my Q10 from any OS version. Plus, it is not native. No love indeed.

It sucks half the time! I thought it was great, initially. Then it got to where it'll just stop playing and won't recover. Also, there's no bluetooth control with it. I like how the developer used Flow within the app, but it is a very unpolished and unfinished app. I used Pandora almost exclusively on my 9850 and 9550 because it worked great. Now I'm "stuck" with using Slacker as my primary music streamer. It doesn't use bluetooth controls, either, but at least it doesn't freeze as much. I can pause it for 12 hours and come back to it and continue playing like I never stopped. I do have the Android app, but good god all mighty, the ads!!

Also guys if you're having issues with login, double check that your username and passwords don't have a space.

He already fixed it and going to push an update for that.

This is fantastic. With 10.2.1 and Whine, Snap2chat and iGrann there is NO reason for anyone not to use a BlackBerry.

And please let's all support the developers for their great work!

Android free since 1996.

It's funny after the top name apps are all here they don't feel as important as people made them appear before...
Or is it just me?

Posted via CB10 on my Z10STL100-

Why don't you guys just learn how to update using Sachesi. It's not like it is hard or takes a long time. Why continue to wait for the carrier and whine (pun intended).

I have had 10.2.1 since BlackBerry sent it to me OTA in November for enterprise beta, and the day .1925 went live, T-Mobile sent me a small update that included the wifi calling app and the my T-Mobile app. Maybe this information will help others. I believe this is why rapidberry lists T-Mobile US as having already deployed 10.2.1.

T-Mobile branded Z10, not factory unlocked.

Posted via CB10

Maybe they should switch carriers. Don't whine about stuff that you HAVE the power to change but consciously choose NOT to do anything about it.

Here on AT&T, stuck with 10.1...BUT...AT&T reportedly will push 10.2.1 on the 10th of this month and TMOBILE will push sometime between 10th and 20th of this month.

BlackBerry Q10!

I had the same problem, realised I had an extra space at the end of my login name, delete this and all will be fine.

Posted via CB10

That fixed it. When I swipe up for my usual username it puts a space.

Def the space causing the issue.

Maybe the dev should look into that too? :)
For those of us aren't on the ball ;)

Great job dev, I would want more users to use Native app instead of side loading or even apk files.

I will donate and encourage more of my fellow blackberry users to do so to make our community strong.

BlackBerry 10 - Built to keep you moving

Same thing I want to know. I would rather go native than port apps so I need to know how to get past this.

Posted via CB10

YES! I wanted to add vines to my social media coverage at work, and I was almost desperate enough to ask someone to loan me their Android device. I'm donating to this developer as soon as possible.

Posted via CB10

Hi when I try to sign in via twitter I'm getting " host requires authentication " not sure what this means, anyone know?

Posted via CB10

For those people getting 401 error when logging through Twitter, change your password to contain no special characters. Just numbers and letters and can be upper case or lower case.

When logging through Twitter, you can change your password back to the original after that, it'll work.

Downloaded it and it works flawlessly. Thanks to all the developers for making an effort to bring those "essential" apps to BB10.

You guys rock!

Posted via CB10

Nice going! It's not my cup of tea but I'll surely check it out!

Posted using the best phone ever, the white Z10!

Not a great experience for me so far. Has the distinction of being the first app to crash my new z30. The video option barely works at all . Am I missing something here?

Great to see all these Social apps available, which unfortunately I don't have much use for, but I'll support the developers by downloading and donating some cash! Didn't seem so long ago that all I remember seeing from the Forums that BB10 better have Skype and Viber available!

Posted via CB10

Read man. Don't use any special characters or spaces in your password. Just use numbers and letters. An update will be pushed soon to fix that

Posted via CB10

Still doesn't work for me. I've tried letters only and numbers only, after having only letters and numbers in the original password. Just waiting on a fix I suppose.

Posted via CB10

Turns out when it auto filled my name it placed a space at the end. App is up and running and Iove it. Thanks dev

Posted via CB10

No Q10 support, really? Plain STUPID! So disappointed and I was waiting for a vine app for so long...

BlackBerry Q10!

401 Requires Host Authentication
What now? I have a Q10 and I'm on 10.2.2 so what is wrong I wonder.

Make sure you're entering your Twitter info correctly. It's user name, not email.

I used my Z10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

Hi thanks I had an @ sign in my password which is apparently unacceptable! Fixed now :) thanks for helping.

Not available for 10.1

Just hope that the at&t release date for 10.2.1 is accurate and next Monday is finally the day for be up to par with everybody else around the world!!

USA carriers SUCK Big time!!

Just signed up to instagram via iGrann. With Whine, the big complain I have for BB10 now is that they got too many apps and I have hard time keeping up.

Hammered out from Z-thirty

Great. One less Whinge with Whine!

Thanks to the dev for another big one ticked off the list.

iPhone for me? Scr... ahem Q that! (posted from the latter)

The developer did an outstanding job. Not only is it native, it's packed with options and actually uses Active Frames which earns huge points in my book. I'm gonna use this one over the Android version.

I'm in the states. It downloaded and works fine for me. Videos play flawlessly. Thank you!

Finally a native app. Much faster than the android app that was side loaded. This is a great reason for people to develop apps for BlackBerry. BlackBerry users will always prefer native apps. I donated $ to the developer after using this app

Posted via CB10

I'm not a Vine user. I just test these social apps out to see what all the fuss is. I tried the Android app and now this. THIS BLOWS THE ANDROID APP AWAY! Videos load and play almost instantly and there is no lag or studder when scrolling. And if I'm honest, I think this actually looks BETTER than the official app. I so love BB10! Outstanding work, dev!

Is there an instruction guide?...I tried creating a video and it just spun processing until I had to shut it off. I'm not familiar with vine so it means I have no idea what I'm doing :)

From my new z30

401 error simple name and password no spaces no special characters and still....even showed pw to confirm no auto fill...... anymore anyone Buehler....

Posted via CB10

hmm can't seem to upload videos at all, just stays on 'processing' but never processes...any suggestions?

Posted via CB10

Can't seem to sign in with Twitter credentials. "401 host requires authentication " error message every time.
