Vine 2.0 Could Be In The Works According To App Creator

Vine was the internet powerhouse of an app, which launched the success of several online stars with their entertaining six-second video clips. When the app was finally killed, many fans of the truly remarkable service were disappointed. The creator of Vine might have some good news for these people since he is apparently thinking about making a follow-up to the app.

Posting about his future plans on Twitter, Vine creator Dom Hofmann wrote that he was planning on developing the next hit thing after Vine. It would appear that he is also thinking about funding the project himself, promising that it won’t interfere with his other obligations, specifically with regards to his new startup call Interface.

[I]'m going to work on a follow-up to vine. [I]'ve been feeling it myself for some time and have seen a lot of tweets, dms, etc,” Hofmann’s Tweet reads.

“[I]'m funding it myself as an outside project, so it doesn't interfere with the (quite exciting) work we're doing at the company, which is my first priority.”

That was all that Hofmann was willing to disclose about his plans, which led some to believe that he is still mulling over the specifics of the app. The success of Vines during the height of its popularity could not be understated, but its inability to catch up to the ever-changing internet landscape proved its undoing.

It’s also worth noting that much of Hofmann’s attention is likely being directed at his new company, which is still shrouded in mystery, even now. As such, there likely won’t be any major development with regards to Vine 2.0 for some time, 9To5Mac notes.

If the new app is to equal or even surpass the kind of success that Vine saw, however, it will also need to be sustainable. Otherwise, it would just be history repeating itself.
