Snapchat Windows Phone app 6snap gets filters, tilt-effect, landscape and more in latest update
Last week we told you about the impending update for 6snap, Rudy Huyn’s popular Snapchat client for Windows Phone. Today, version 1.2 is now live in the Store, ready for your latest snaps.
Missed our article last time? We’ll tell you what’s changed.
6snap version 1.2
- Support "custom" value for story privacy (select which friends can see your stories)
- Include all 6tag filters
- Blur your pictures: manual blur, manual focus, tilt-effect
- Landscape view to edit your picture (add text, draw, etc...)
- Fast app resume
- Optimization for low-spec devices
That’s a fairly significant changelog and makes 6snap more full-featured than the official apps found on Android and iOS. It’s also great to see Huyn bringing over some of his other features from 6tag, his Instagram client, which also received an update today.
If you use Snapchat or want to on Windows Phone, 6snap is currently your only option. Perhaps someday there will be an official app, but until now, 6snap nicely fills in that gap.
Pick up 6snap version 1.2 here in the Store. Windows Phone 8 only. It’s ad-supported, but you can remove them for $1.29 with an in-app purchase.
Thanks, Lee C., for the tip
