Product? Vine (iOS)
What does it do? Allows you to capture short, repeating video’s and share those with your followers and Twitter friends.
- The first thing I’m greeted with is a “Would like to send you notifications” dialog. Can’t believe big apps like Vine can get away with that.
- Animating background looks inviting though
What is your name?
- Single field
- Movie keeps playing
- Nice transitions
- Didn’t spot the option to add a profile picture right away (looked over it), got asked with an extra alert to do this
- Feels a bit cramped, but that might be because of my old phone
- Optional phone number, don’t know what for
- The purpose of this screen is not clear to me straight away
- Apparently they are categories I can follow
- There is no amount of categories I have to follow or need to select to continue
- I don’t have a clue what kind of content I can expect
- I like it that the background color of the checkmark icon corresponds with the color of the category
- The first thing I got asked was Vine wanting to see all my contacts, not good
- I can also connect to Twitter
- I like it that there is also a direct search option, but it is no global search, it only finds people I have added from my address book or Twitter account :(
- Leaving without connecting accounts shows an alert: “Vine is more fun when you connect with friends!”
- Starts with popups next to buttons which explains them and a “Got it” button, which sort of guides you through the interface but not really
- It would have been nice to create my first Vine as part of the onboarding process
- We’re done! Didn’t get an e-mail (yet).
