Rudy Huyn is a busy bee and has been working hard throughout the weekend to build the foundations for an unofficial Instagram app for Windows Phone. We covered the good news yesterday. This app, now referred to as 6gram, will enable consumers on Microsoft's mobile platform to interact with and manage their Instagram accounts. Today we can relay a screenshot and tile logos that have been brought to our attention, not to mention the new name for the project.
If you're a fan of apps made by the established developer, the name may sound familiar, and that it should. Huyn's unofficial Vine app is branded 6Sec, so we're certainly keeping in line with the "6" family of apps. Though the name could be altered before released. Unfortunately, there's still not much to go on while we wait for Huyn to get to a point where beta testing can commence and the submission process isn't far off. For now, we can at least tease you all with the below screen:
First thoughts: it looks gorgeous. Huyn has revealed some details on Twitter about how functionality will be added through in-app purchases. Much like 6Sec, $1.49 will enable unlimited uploads and $1.29 to remove in-app advertising. Sounds more than reasonable to us. It has also been confirmed that step 3 has been accomplished, which involves adding all 6gram features utilising the Instagram API.
But what about older hardware or Microsoft's Windows desktop OS? According to Huyn's Twitter account, we'll be seeing 6gram and 6Sec arrive on Windows Phone 7, as well as Windows 8 in the future. That's definitely some welcomed news for consumers still rocking older hardware or Windows 8 tablets and would like to remain up-to-date with the latest postings on Instagram, and add their own while out and about.
Thanks, einztrigger, for the heads up!
