Google Opens Up Photovine to the Public

Google’s new Photovine mobile photo sharing app for iOS is now out of private beta and open to public signups. Here’s how the iTunes download page describes it:

Photovine is a fun way to learn more about your friends, meet new people, and share your world like never before. It all starts with what we call a photovine: a group of photos around a single, shared caption. Start a new vine with a photo and caption of your own or add your photo/take on someone else’s vine.

It has a long ways to go before it can catch Instagram, which is currently the 800-pound gorilla in this space. Instagram has already passed 7 million registered users, who have uploaded more than 700 million photos. Google has a pretty big reach though, so products launched by the company can get really big, really fast — just look at Google+.

    WTF! why not Android, Instagram has 10 millions users, but there are more than 50 millions users of G+ many of them use Android, so if you own an android, and have an Gplus account why not use photovine? why they don’t thinked about it

    Instagram – on iPhone & Android too!
