Photovine is a new iOS photo sharing application from Google that emphasizes sharing photos on public and thematically grouped “vines”.

When you share photos with Photovine you simply don’t throw them out into the cloud; you link them to existing vines (or create a new one) that showcase some element of the photo. Celeb run in photos? Girls in glasses? Dogs in silly hats? Whatever you like taking pictures of there’s a vine for it–or there will be shortly after you create it.

While the “tearing down walls” metaphor in the above video is a bit much, Photovine is a novel concept and we’re looking forward to it coming to Android. Hit up the link below to grab a copy for your iOS device.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Terrible ap, they copied similar software down to the button placement.

    Anyway, its only available for Apple so who cares about it.

    @Adam, anyone with an iPhone or iPad would care about it, Not everyone is particular to Android or WebOS

    What I find odd is that this being a product of Google, that you’d figure it would be put out onto it’s own platform first.
