Earlier this morning, Rudy Huyn rolled out an update to 6snap, his unofficial Snapchat client for Windows Phone. However, that update was evidently built on a 'preview' compiler causing unforeseen crashing when the app was launched on people's phones. Due to the glitch, Huyn pulled the app until he could push out a second update to apply a fix.

Now, version 3.3.0.1 is live in the Store and with it comes a handful of improvements and modifications, including a fix for the earlier crashing.

Microsoft is set to publish a new update for the Surface Pro 3 that will address some lingering issues with the hybrid device and make it less likely to wake up accidentally while being carried or stowed.

In a blog post on TechNet, Microsoft's J.C. Hornbeck details the upcoming update. Previously, Microsoft would announce the changes after the update has gone live, usually Tuesdays every few weeks. This change is in response to organizations who deploy fleets of Surfaces and where the IT team would like to know before the updates get pushed to their employees.
