Vine finally launches for Windows Phone

Windows Phone users have learned to live with the app selection on their platform being what it is. While it gets better every day, there are still too many times when official apps simply aren’t available, and users instead turn to third party solutions or outright knockoffs. But then there are those good days, where after a wait that can only be characterized as excessive, we finally see an official port get delivered; that’s where we find ourselves today, getting word that Vine is launching for Windows Phone.

Last month, at the Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi, we got the good news that both Windows Phone Instagram and Vine were nearing launch. Even lacking details on exactly when the pair would become available, it was enough to get us pretty excited.

While we haven’t seen Vine hit the Windows Phone Store just yet, we have confirmation that it is going live sometime today. Obviously, you should expect tools for shooting your short video clips, and in this port there’s support for pinning Vine accounts to Live Tiles.

What say you, Windows Phone users? Is the arrival of Vine a nice little “get” for the platform, or were you already perfectly happy with apps like 6sec?
