Dom Hoffman, the co-founder of Vine — that nifty little app which (for iOS only at the moment ) allows users to film and upload short video clips — has given a presentation at the NYC Apps meetup, a small networking event held in NYC for developers and designers.

Amongst a whole lot of things that will be interesting to those who care about Vine’s background and development, and upcoming changes on iOS, was this tidbit. Vine is working on an Android version of its hugely popular application and it will be available “soon”.

How hugely popular is Vine? Well, it’s safe to say that if the President of the United States is using it — and he is, see below — then the app has reached that point at which a lot of other people are going to be using it, and in Android land, wanting to use it.

We don’t know how soon “soon” is, but we do hope it’s “very soon” rather than “soon, like Christmas”. We won’t repost the Verge’s content here, but simply point you to it if you’re interested in the other aspects of Vine that Hoffman talked about.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
