Vine Byte Android iOS App
Vine co-creator Dom Hofmann launched Byte, a new Android / iOS app that lets its users share six-second looping videos. Even though it was just released, its biggest competitor comes from China’s Bytedance, the maker of the popular social app TikTok, which lets you string together 6-15 second clips into a 60-second (maximum) video.

How will Byte compete with TikTok? Well, they’re planning on launching a partner program that will actually pay its users on the platform for successful creations as part of a revenue sharing scheme. They’ll be starting their revenue sharing mechanism by supplementing it from Byte’s own pocket.
