Photo Marker is a neat little app that enables you to mark and add notes to any photo on your Windows Phone. Today, the developer released version 1.6, adding a number of small improvements. As covered in our review of the app, it's not an app that you'll use day-in and day-out, but it's super-handy to have available if you happen to snap a bunch of photos on your smartphone.

The good news is that 6tag, a popular third-party Instagram app for Windows Phone, continues to add new features that are absent from the official one. With latest version 4.0 update, you can adjust filter strength, play with five new filters, and edit existing posts. Want to see it in action? Check out our hands-on video.

Update: Well that didn't take long. It looks like 6tag is back and ready to download.

Original story: This morning, Rudy Huyn released 6tag 4.0, bringing some of the latest Instagram features to Windows Phone like new filters and finally being able to edit posts.

One issue many of you are noticing is that after you update your existing 6tag app, the program fails to load. Instead, it back out and goes back to your Start screen (or menu). Turns out it is a cache incompatibility problems and uninstalling and reinstalling the app appears to fix it.

The Instagram client 6tag version 4.0 barely got out the door this morning before being temporarily pulled due to a caching issue. While we wait for the 4.0.0.1 fix to roll out to the Store, it is worth chewing on that version 5.0 – likely not due for many months – is planned to be a universal app for Windows Phone and Windows.

Many developers are already contemplating the Windows 10 OS refresh and new developer tools, which are set to be unveiled later this spring at Microsoft's Build 2015 conference. Huyn is a connected developer, often featured by Microsoft so thinking about a universal app using Windows 10 seems like a no-brainer for the prolific developer.
