Normally, when viewing a Vine video the ellipsis (...) in the lower right corner brings up options to Share or Report a post. With VineDownloader on your device, an additional option "Save video" is added to the menu. Simply tap the Save video button to download the video to your Camera Roll. When saving a video for the first time, Vine will ask for access to the Camera Roll.

VineDownloader provides a simple way to download your favorite videos for offline viewing, just as they appear in the Vine app. A notification will appear as soon as the complete video has been successfully downloaded.

Vine, a service from Twitter, has provided its users with a whole new way to share short videos. Much like Tweets limit text length, Vine limits videos to loops of six seconds or less. Check out this list of Five Funny Vine Channels Worth Following after you've installed VineDownloader from Cydia.
