One of our favorite Windows app developers, Rudy Huyn, has announced an update to his 6tag Instagram update. According to Rudy, the app has a new UI that's adapted to larger screens, including the 950 XL, 1320, 1520, and 640 XL.

6tag also utilizes the latest Instagram API, which is good news. But even better is the fact that he's working on a Universal Windows App to be coming soon. In case you're unaware, here's what the app can do for you:
6tag is the most full featured Instagram app for Windows Phone
★★★ Exclusive features ★★★
- Support non-square images (upload and viewer)
- Video upload from your phone - emoji hashtags
- Upload images in HD! Your images will be more precise and less blurry than with Instagram Beta app
- Create custom locations
- Send and receive direct messages to your contacts
- Create compelling photo with 'Layout' feature
- Blur a part of your image, change strength of filters - etc...
Upload picture and videos on Instagram, apply filters, tag your friends, view posts on a map, etc...
Customize your photos with one of several gorgeous and custom built filter effects. Share your photos and videos on Instagram
Not much more to report, except to say that we're glad to see Rudy continuing to update his apps and support the Windows platform. Good developers like him are the best hope for the eventual success of Windows 10 Mobile if that's ever going to happen.
