Instagram is probably the most used photo sharing platform worldwide or let’s just say it is and if you know Instagram, you might be also familiar with the probably most famous Windows Phone app developer Rudy Huyn. Back at the beginning of Microsoft’s mobile operating system and the popular photo sharing platform Instagram, Microsoft had a hard time because the app was not available for their OS and they couldn’t attract any users to come to their operating system. Rudy Huyn then introduced 6tag which is the mist successful and most used Instagram app in the Windows Universal App Store by now. While the official Instagram app is still lacking some features, Rudy Huyn has brought a fantastic design to his Instagram client and there is not a single feature missing.
Well okay there is actually one feature which he has not implemented in the app yet, the ability to edit and upload videos to Instagram. Recently version 4.0 of the app has been released including some new features. With version 4.0 it is possible to edit posts, edit post locations, 5 new filters the ability to change filter strength and a few other things. However the update has been pulled from the app store shortly after it has been released because of a caching bug. Version 18.104.22.168 with a fix for that bug has been released already so that you can enjoy these new features. Still no sign of the ability to upload and edit videos?

Originally Rudy has said that he will be releasing a Universal App of 6tag as a response to a question of a Twitter user. The Twitter user was asking about the upload and editing feature and Rudy responded that this will be implemented in 6tag 5.0 Universal App. This is pretty awesome news for the Windows community since the UWP is the heart of Windows 10 and will bring a lot of new stuff for users of the Windows ecosystem. Continuum Mode on a Windows 10 Mobile device for example is relying on Windows Universal Apps.
However, enough said, feel free to drop me a comment below with your opinion on the 6tag client for Windows Phone and Stay tuned for more Microsoft related news in the future.
