No paying for things (like profile pictures or editing your videos), except maybe donations to creators
A base square video layout like this:
With a new, unique feature being the reason to come to v2, such as seamless looping, the group of people who are tired of using the same apps will be attracted.
What other ideas (related to the Overall App Experience) do you have?
Yes, it would be very easy to incorporate this feature into the camera part of the app, I could never understand why Vine didn’t add this ability when it was always a challenge for those making vines by themselves.
I enjoy the “on the rise” idea because it helps new creators instead of just constantly promoting the same ones that don’t need the promotion anymore. Also, maybe a basic in-app video editor? We can record a video and chop it up?(I left vine early so I’m not sure if this was implemented already)
I like the idea of the “on the rise” thing. It seems that v2 are trying to allow new people to gain a platform instead of the same influencers from other platforms/vine and this would be a great way to combat that. Perhaps if it was made in a similar way to the Instagram “Explore” page, but with different algorithm etc.
I like the idea of having a community voted artist of the month. A group of moderator type users that would be chosen by dom compile between 3 and 6 on the rise accounts that get displayed under their own section of v2. They post a vine saying vote for me which appears only in this section and the most votes gets a weeklong spotlight. This will bring attention to each of those artists work and be a unique way to promote audience growth.
“tap for sound” possibly could just use a small animation in the corner, also when the video enlarges it should pop to the size of the screen then start from the begging because when a similar app called worm released to show action sports in slow motion their hold down feature was slow and wasn’t responsive so i also think having a certain spot to hold the video down will also be a nice feature as this can create a very quick and necessary response time as it will engage users a lot quicker and keep them intrigued in the app
