Vine Android: Missing Feature, Bugs, and Fixes
Posted on June 6th 2013
Finding people on Vine App for iPhone vs. Android
Other bugs when trying to find people on Vine Android
If this isn’t enough, what makes it even harder to find someone on Vine Android is the app does not appear to connect with the Google address book properly. Users receive a message none of their contacts are on Vine when this is clearly not the case. Secondly when connecting Vine to Twitter, If a user’s Vine handle is different from their Twitter handle , Vine Android will not call up the user to follow. For users interested in following a company, sending a text or email is also probably not an option unless they know who to send it to. So how do you find someone when you don’t have a search bar and the other ways won’t seem to work?
The solution: How to “find people” who can’t be found
The best way to find people on the Vine Android App until the search feature is added and bugs are worked out is by locating another user you can follow who may have a first or second association with your intended target. Call up their profile. Locate your intended targets through their account.
Sound time consuming and complicated? While we know it’s not the answer you were hoping for, it’s the only answer which appears to work for now.
What do you think of the Vine App for Android? Have you been able to locate the people you are trying to follow? Express your thoughts below. We want to hear your feedback.
