Capture life in motion, Android owners.

Twitter finally made its popular Vine video app available for Android earlier this month, where it quickly climbed the charts and mirrored the success the app has seen on the iPhone.

But while it's seen some of the same success as the iOS app, it's not quite the same - yet.

While the service is sending out regular updates to the Android app, there are still some features on the iOS version that haven't made the jump, such as the ability to shoot video from your phone's front-facing camera. Updates adding such features are likely on their way.

On the other hand, there is one notable feature on the Android app that isn't on the iOS version: the ability to zoom. The controls to do this are a bit awkwardly assigned to the volume buttons, but it's still a welcome feature.

Free, for Android devices running 4.0 and up.
