The Vine app in Google Play didn't get the warmest reception. When it launched a few weeks ago, it was missing a ton of features compared to the iOS version. It's currently sitting at 2.9 stars, but apparently those negative reviews lit a fire under Twitter's Vine developers. The app has just gotten a second major update in the space of a week. It's kind of crazy.

This update is adding even more features people have been begging for. Here's the changelog:

  • Front-facing camera
  • New upload manager for unsubmitted posts
  • Improvements to settings
  • Improvements to camera loading time and support for more devices
  • Speed improvements overall
  • Bug fixes and UI improvements

The front-facing camera support is of particular interest because, well... you can take selfies without video, right? What is this? The Middle Ages? The other additions are nice to see as well. The app is getting downright respectable with all these updates.
