How to Get Vine App for Windows Phone in Canada

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 11:19 AM

[UPDATE] – It looks like the Vine app is generally available in the Canadian app store so you won’t need to go through the steps below. However, this method may be valid for other applications not available regionally through the app store.[/UPDATE]

I wanted to download the Vine app for Windows Phone, but I couldn’t find it in the app store when I browsed it on my Nokia.

I went to the app’s page on the app store where I saw this:

One of my Twitter peeps from Winnipeg, Len, commented that he was able to install it from the website. So I went back and noticed that there’s a “Download and Install Manually” link towards the bottom of the page, which will let you download the .XAP file directly.

So I emailed myself the link, opened it on my phone, and voila – Vine is now installed!

What’s the point of limiting apps by region if we can just manually download and install the file anyway? Weird.

I *think* you can also press "Install" from a Windows box to queue it up for install on the phone (assuming you have one registered with your Microsoft Account). 11/12/2013 12:17 PM | Peter Ritchie

Nope, just tried on the PC, didn't work. But, the method you described worked for me :) 11/13/2013 1:54 PM | Peter Ritchie

Strangely enough, I was able to install the initial Vine app as one normally would. I was even a features app with the Vine wallpaper in the background. However, I understand there is a minor update available which I am not able to download in the normal fashion. Weird. 11/14/2013 2:04 PM | Ross Snowden

I've been using Vine app for a long now, recently installed the latest version of Vine from Tutuapp store which is an online app market providing apps for free. You can also download tutuapp from it's official website. 5/29/2017 3:12 AM | Hendrick Son
