Vinyet Vine Client Disappears From App Store, Blames Twitter

The third party Vine client Vinyet has been removed from the App Store following a take-down request from none other than Twitter.

Vinyet is a mobile application that is designed to help users make better social videos that can be shared on social media and Twitters Vine Application.

Today the application has disappeared from the App Store and according to Vinyet’s creator, Jason Lawrence, the app has been removed to comply with a takedown request from Twitter and they are currently unsure wether it was under a legal obligation to do so.

The original e-mail he received came from Apple Support that relayed a complaint letter directly from twitter claiming that Vinyet was in direct violation of intellectual property rights and several trademarks.

Lawrence explains that the app did not use any of Vine’s code to actually post to Vine and therefore did not break any copywriter laws and that they have studied the terms of service and not found any way they have violated twitters terms.

The company is currently in the process of removing the functionality to post to Vine which will then see it return to the App Store. The company had roughly 4000 active users when the app was pulled.

It’s not the first time that apps have been pulled by big companies with Facebook removing apps that used “insta” and “gram” from its very own Instagram brand,
