Photovine Hits The App Store, Invite-Only (For Now)

Photovine Hits The App Store, Invite-Only (For Now)

Earlier this week, we gave you the heads up that Google was planning to launch its own photo-sharing offering called Photovine. Previously pegged via a trademark filing discovered just a few weeks prior, Google Photovine is an Instagram-esque service which allows you to share the photos you snap with others around the world.

When we told you about the service though, it was little more than an invite request page. Today, however, as noted by our friends over at iClarified, Google has sent live its official iOS client for the service.

Invite-only, upon launching the app you’ll be asked to provide your e-mail address. In order to gain access to the app’s features, this e-mail address must first match up with the address by which you received your Photovine invite.

It all starts with what we call a photovine: a group of photos around a single, shared caption. Start a new vine with a photo and caption of your own or add your photo/take on someone else’s vine.

Don’t have an invite? – Head over to and request one today. Once you’ve got your invite, you’ll want to head directly below to download your copy of Photovine for iPhone.
