6tin is now a Universal Windows 10 app, gets dark theme and more

Windows Phone’s all-star app developer Rudy Huyn recently released 6tin to the Windows Store as a Windows Universal app. Rudy, perhaps best known for his full-featured 3rd party Instagram app 6tag, has recently begun retooling his Windows Phone stable of apps for Windows 10.

6tin, Rudy’s Tinder client, is technically Rudy’s second app to make the Universal Windows transition, with Dropbox being the first. The new 6tin update brings more than code re-write. Rudy has redesigned the app making use of a refined hamburger menu, and Windows 10-styled settings.

While the app takes it time propagating throughout the Windows Store, users should be on the lookout for v3.0 as the new and updated version of the app if the visual redesign doesn’t give it away. According to Rudy’s changelog, other additions to v3.0 include:

  • UWP app with adaptive design
  • interactive toast, answer to messages directly from the toast
  • advanced support for continuum
  • dark theme
  • roaming of your accounts between devices
  • create and use pick-up lines

For new users, 6tin requires a Facebook account for login access and supports all the new Tinder features found on other platforms such as viewing schools and or jobs of others profiles. As part of Rudy’s development parlor tricks he’s also added some exclusive platform specific user experiences that include:

  • support Continuum
  • undo last swipes if you made a mistake or changed your mind
  • select manually your geo-localization on a map without GPS
  • be able to save photos of your contacts on your phone
  • check profile pictures of your contacts using Google Images

The update is making the rounds and may or may not be up for download in your region. Fear not, it will eventually be available for all Windows users to swipe right – swipe left, in time.
