Instagram client 6tag gets ability to save videos to SkyDrive in latest update

85

It seems like it was just yesterday that 6tag, the popular Instagram client for Windows Phone 8, had yet another update from developer Rudy Huyn. Indeed, it was yesterday that version 3.0.2.0 landed. Huyn whimsically promised on Christmas Eve that it was the last update for this week. Luckily for you, he couldn’t keep his word.

In an odd coincidence, soon after we posted a review of the app InstaVideo Downloader, Huyn saw a challenge before him and he feverishly began working on his own solution to allow users to save Instagram videos. Yes, evidently there are some videos that you folks come across that you want to save for later, and instead of having a separate app, you can now do it all in 6tag. Let’s get the details.

The best games for your Nokia Lumia 520

Yesterday we shared with you the best apps for your Nokia Lumia 520. Why the Lumia 520 and not Windows Phone in general? Because if you have a device like the Lumia 920 or 1520 you can run practically any app in the Windows Phone Store. However, the Lumia 520 and other devices with just 512MB of RAM (think Lumia 521, Lumia 620, Lumia 720, etc) might come across certain apps and games that don’t work or don’t work too well.

The overwhelming majority of apps in the Windows Phone Store do work on all devices, including those with just 512MB of RAM. It’s when we look at games that we see the frequency of support drop a bit. All too often this year we’ve seen a highly anticipated game come to Windows Phone, but without initial support for 512MB devices. That said, here are the best games you can run on your Lumia 520.
