After finding out Byte was finally available, I quickly downloaded the app first on iOS while at work. I signed in with my Apple ID, re-created my Vine screen name, set up my profile, re-uploaded my old Vine videos, added a new video, added some friends, etc. Basically got pretty well-established.
When I got home, I grabbed my Android device and downloaded the app. There is no option to sign in with my Apple ID. When I sign in with Google (which just happens to be the same exact email address as my Apple ID), it treats me like a new user. I’m given the option to create a new screen name and make a new account.
Is there no way to link accounts on Byte? Is there no way to use Apple ID sign-in on the Android version of the app?
Am I forever blocked from using my account on Android?
It seems like a pretty big oversight to limit some accounts to a single platform. Shouldn’t there have been a warning that creating an account with Apple would block you from using the account on other devices?
Do the developers even know this is an issue?
