Just in time for memorializing Fourth of July celebrations Vinehas released its biggest update to date

with version 1.3. The first new feature is the addition of Channels that allow you to search specificcategories like Comedy, Arts & Experimental, and yes…cats. They’ve also debuted a new On the Rise section featuring new Vine filmmakers.

Sharing has been made easier with the new Revining feature that allows you to finally repost your friend’s work. With that added power comes enhanced security in the form of protected accounts. Now you can approve who follows you and shares your “work.” Need to keep those cat videos safe from dangerous eyes.

There are also need capturing tools available including the desperately needed ability to focus, along with ghosting and a new gride. Interestingly the update does not include a lengthening of video run time in response to Instagram’s 15 second videos.

The update is available now.
