‘Vine Kids’ was launched last week by Twitter. It is a video-sharing app aimed at children.
“We’ve seen for ourselves — and heard from parents, siblings and others,” Vine’s Carolyn Penner wrote, “that kids love Vine. So, we built Vine Kids, a simple new app that gives young children a fun way to watch Vines.”
According to Penner, the app was inspired by a conversation between a Vine employee who spoke of how much his daughter enjoyed Vine videos. “He said he wished there was a separate app she could use to more easily watch posts that are appropriate for kids,” said Penner.
Penner says in Vine hack week, “two folks teamed up and built exactly that.”
Vine Kids is only available on iOS with no idea on when it will available for Android.
