Canopy, is a free Windows 8 Vine client app. It’s a very good Windows 8 version of the popular service introduced by Twitter for iOS. And, I have to admit that, this version of the service is also a pretty well made version. Using this Windows 8 Vine client app, you can see your vine video feeds and the video feeds by the people, with whom you are connected to. Plus, the app also consists of a set of categories, using which you can search, and then view the popular vines of that category. You can like a vine video (that is feed), comment on them, and revine (repost) the vines in your own channel.
If you don’t have a Vine account, no worries, the app also allows you to create a new account from within the app. After that, you can find some new people, start following them, and view their vine videos. Though, the app doesn’t lets you upload a video. So, basically it’s more of Windows 8 Vine viewer app.

Canopy is a good Windows 8 Vine client app. It has got features that, most of other Windows 8 Vine clients doesn’t have. It’s easy, quick, and allows to do almost everything, that you can do in official Vine app. Only thing it lacks is, the video uploading feature, which is obvious as it’s not the official Windows 8 version. But, that doesn’t affect the app too much. Certainly, a good app to use.
