Rudy Huyn’s Snapchat client 6snap so far has survived being an unofficial clone of the popular messaging app. That’s the good news for those worried about an immediate copyright complaint.

The even better news is that after this week’s 1.1 update, version 1.2 has just been submitted to the Store. It won’t arrive probably at least until Monday, but in case you want a heads up, here’s what is coming.

6snap 1.2

  • Retrieve 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

Sounds like he’s porting over some of his 6tag features to 6snap, which seems like a good idea. In short, with this update, 6snap will begin to surpass any official offering from Snapchat. But, that should not be a surprise to any of you, especially if you use 6tag or 6sec, right?

As we said, version 1.2 won’t be in the Store for a few days, so sit tight and get excited. We’ll keep you posted as soon as the app is published.
