Instagram Vs Vine

Instagram and Vine are two of the most popular video sharing Apps. Both these applications operate in a similar fashion yet they have a vast difference among themselves. Face book users love their experience with Instagram and Twitter users simply cannot stop speaking about Vine. The question remains, which is the best amongst the two. A brief comparison among the two giants of short term video Apps may help you to understand what suits you better.

  1. Video Time: Instagram is more generous than Vine in the context of video length. Instagram allows you to share videos up to 15 seconds as compared to Vine’s bare minimum limit of six seconds. Decent video length allows you to shoot interesting and fun videos without bothering about the time limit. Though 15 seconds may seem like eternity if the video is tad boring. This could be one of the reasons that Instagram videos are higher in quality as compared to Vine.
  2. Ease of Shooting: Instagram offers tap-to-focus option while shooting and this allows the video recorder to switch from background to fore ground. This can be brilliant when dealing with multiple angles in video. It also sports Nifty feature that can stabilize your video even after you shoot it. The only drawback is that you need to use a big red button on screen to shoot on Instagram whereas Vine allows you to record by clicking anywhere on the app.
  3. Looping: Vine sports a loop feature that enables you to watch short videos at length. It is especially good for animation videos as the visuals appear better after looping, Instagram does not capitalize on looping probably because of extended video length.
  4. Edit options: Instagram scores on vine on editing fore front. Users have ability adding signature filters as well as deleting sequences from the video. Signature filters can definitely help you to improve visual quality of your video

At the moment, Instagram tends to be far ahead of Vine when you consider usability and features, though Vine is gearing up and has already announced that it may provide ability to save video drafts in near future.
