On Vine, users have just six seconds to capture a viewer's attention. When time is that limited, incorporating catchy tunes and fun sound clips by taking advantage of soundboard apps that are available can often make all the difference in keeping viewers interested and engaged.

Anyone who's pretty active on Vine should know that video-making trends go viral across the platform all the time. Every few weeks or so, some lucky user's new video quickly becomes a meme or trend almost overnight, inspiring all sorts of Vine users to create and post their own versions.

The My Name Is Jeff sound clip from the movie 22 Jump Street is just one example of a trend that went wildly viral on Vine. Users came up with all sorts of different and creative ways to insert the clip into their videos in a way that could make viewers laugh.

If you like to post Vine videos and want to build a following of loyal users who will always be willing to revine your posts, then you're probably going to want to know about these types of trends, along with the third-party soundboard apps that make it convenient for you to get in on them.

Best of Vine Soundboard (iOS)

Best of Vine Soundboard is one of the highest rated Vine sound apps in the App Store.

You get 115 of the best and most popular trending sounds, along with a drag-and-drop feature at the bottom of the screen to save your favorite ones. You can upgrade to the pro version to enable sharing and take away the ads. It even supports the Apple Watch!

Dubsmash (iOS and Android)

While the sole purpose of Dubsmash isn't just to be shared on Vine, it certainly is useful for it!

Just choose a sound, record yourself with it and then you can save it to your device. From there, you can upload it to Vine.

VineBoard (iOS)

Another popular Vine soundboard app for iOS is VineBoard, featuring a different interface compared to the others and over 400 sounds... for free! You can also search sounds, save and store your favorites and reorder them however you like.

VSounds (iOS and Android)

VSounds lets you browse through all sorts of couple Vine sound clips, from "a potato" to "i like turtles." To be able to use all the sounds, you'll need to make an in-app purchase of $1.99.

SoundPal (iOS)

SoundPal is a relatively new app (for iOS only right now) featuring a couple of sound clips you can listen to and use for free. Like VSounds, if you want to take full advantage of the sounds that the app offers, you'll need to make an in-app purchase of $0.99 to unlock additional sounds.

Vclips (Android)

If you're and Android user who's not all that impressed with the in-app subscription you need to make for access to all sounds, you might try Vclips. The app offers over 70 free sounds you can easily swipe through and play.

Soundboard for Vine Free (iOS)

This app gives iOS users slightly more variety that's free of charge compared to VSounds and SoundPal, which only offer a couple sounds for free. Soundboard for Vine Free offers about 20 sounds for free, plus a $2.29 upgrade option for access to all.

Musical.ly (iOS and Android)

Okay, so Musical.ly isn't exactly a "soundboard" type of app since it focuses on music rather than sounds, but it certainly is one of the best apps to have if you like using free clips of popular songs as the background music in your Vine videos. Musical.ly is actually a social network itself, but you can use it to save the videos you make with it and upload it to other social networks, including Vine.

Here's how to use Musical.ly.

A few of the apps mentioned above haven't been updated in a year or longer, so don't be too disappointed if they don't work so great. Some of the more popular ones, however — like Dubsmash and Musical.ly — have been updated more recently.

Take Advantage of Vine's In-App Music and Sound Effects

Did you know that Vine actually has features that allow you to add music and sounds to your videos? Well, now you know!

When you're editing a new vine, you can tap the music note icon at the bottom of the screen to add background music using clips that Vine suggests or by connecting to your music library. Alternatively, you can also tap the audio wave icon to see a selection of popular sound effects similar to what's offered by the third-party apps above, which you can insert directly into your videos.

Happy vining!
