6sec

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen updates for 6tag (Instagram client) and 6sec (Vine client) from developer Rudy Huyn. Today, we’re getting updates for both, including a 2.0 release for 6sec.

6tag has received CloudSix integration, which is Huyn’s other pet project. CloudSix offers an unparalleled experience for cloud hosting companies on Windows Phone, including Dropbox (Huyn mentioned that he plans to expand CloudSix coverage to OneDrive, Mega, Google Drive and more in the future). Today’s update includes that along with support for “phablets under Windows Phone 8.1”.

6tag 3.x

  • 8.1 phablet devices – Appbar and keyboard size are different sizes, adjusted to reflect that
  • Save videos to CloudSix

The app update has not gone live for us, so check back later. You can find 6tag here in the Windows Phone Store.

Likewise for 6sec, which has hit 2.0 today and that is live in the Store. Like 6tag, that too has CloudSix integration, so that when you flip the Vine around and tap the cloud icon, you can now save the video to OneDrive or CloudSix (Dropbox).

6sec 2.0

  • Support for Vine Direct Messaging
  • Save videos to CloudSix
  • 8.1 phablet devices – Appbar and keyboard size are different sizes, adjusted to reflect that

The other big addition is 6sec now has Direct Messaging support, like 6tag does for Instagram. That will allow you to send Vines directly to people, instead of posting them publicly. Finally, like 6tag, 6sec gets some 8.1 support, which includes the new smaller Appbar and keyboard for large screen devices.

Pick up 6sec version 2.0 here in the Store and let us know what you think below!
