Phototag has just been updated with a couple more themes to add information overlay for your photos. Version 1.3 now has a total of six overlay themes: Place, Weather, Food, Baby, Speedometer, and Date+Time. The latest version also brings localization updates, wide tile support, and availability for Windows Phone 7.5 devices.

The swiping gestures also feel like this app is made specifically for Windows Phone.
