Instagram recently introduced support for portrait and landscape orientation images and videos. The company released a new update to its Android and iOS apps to support the new orientations – however, as expect, the Windows Phone app was left out in the cold. Thankfully though, Rudy Huyn’s third-party Instagram client, 6tag has been updated to support these new orientations.

With the latest update for 6tag, users can view, and upload non-square images. Alongside support for non-square images, Rudy has also added three new filters: Clarendon, Gingham and Moon. Additionally, there’s a new feature which will allow users to tap and hold on a picture to compare how an image looks with and without a specific filter. Here’s the full changelog for the latest update:

  • Upload non-square pictures
  • View non-square pictures uploaded by other users
  • Add 3 new filters: Clarendon, Gingham and Moon
  • Tap and hold your picture to quickly compare with and without filter (on filters page)
  • Bugfixes and use last Instagram API

As you can see, 6tag is getting the new Instagram features pretty quickly. If you’re not satisfied with the official Instagram app for Windows Phone (which you probably aren’t), you should definitely give it a try as the app gets better with every update.

For those wondering, 6tag is available for free on the Windows Phone Store – however, there’s an in-app purchase which lets you remove the ads. If you want to grab the latest update for 6tag, head over to the Windows Phone Store by clicking here. Alternatively, you can scan the QR code below to open the app directly on your phone:
