Micro video sharing app appears on newer Kindle Fires

Twitter-owned mini-video sharing app Vine has expanded beyond its Android and iOS base to land on Amazon's Kindle Fire platform, it was revealed on Friday. The Vine app for Kindle Fire brings the short video sharing service to all Kindle Fire devices save the first generation. The Kindle Fire edition comes less than a month after Vine landed on Android.

It took four months following its launch on iOS for Vine to make it to Android. The quick move to the Kindle Fire platform was likely facilitated by the fact that Amazon's tablets are powered by a forked version of Google's Android operating system. Twitter has given no indication whether the video sharing service will make its way to Windows Phone or BlackBerry devices.

A presence on the Kindle Fire will give Amazon a foothold in each of the largest overall device install bases. While Amazon doesn't reveal sales figures for its tablets, it is believed that the low-cost devices represent a significant share of the overall U.S. tablet market.

The Vine app for Kindle Fire is available as a free download in Amazon's Appstore.
