6sec updated for Windows Phone 8, brings NFC sharing, ability to reply to comments and more

On Windows Phone we don’t really have a wide selection of apps to pick from if we want to get our Vine. So in our little ecosystem, 6sec is by far the best option at the moment. Rudy Huyn is the developer behind 6sec and has just released a new update. Let’s see what’s new.

Head to the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see 6sec sitting pretty at version 1.3. What’s new in this latest update? Here’s what:

  • New keyboard share
  • Share using NFC (Windows Phone, Android, and BlackBerry)
  • Reply to comment
  • Improved upload security
  • Enabled in-browser “open” with feature (see the FAQ)
  • Other small changes

The ability to reply to comments is surely welcomed by quite a few of you. Long press a comment to do this action. It’s nice not having to type in the username of someone you’re replying to.

When you’re typing in the comment box you’ll see a ‘@’ and ‘#’ floating above the keyboard to give you quick access to two of the most commonly used symbols. The rest of the features you might not necessarily notice day to day as you use the app, but they’re in the background working hard for you.

Have the update already? Sound off below with what you think.

6sec for Windows Phone is a free app that is supported with advertisements. You can remove those advertisings with an in-app purchase ($1.29) and with another in-app purchase to enable video upload. Folks on Windows Phone 8 can go to the Store to get it, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.
