    I appreciate Rudy Huyns work and the apps that he is bringing to the platform. I also really like that he does have a discernable style as opposed to white text on black background.

    I'm just not thrilled with his styling. Am I the only one? Just something about it irks me in a way.

    I really like his style. It's even better with 6tagram

    This dude is awesome. I like his style. His apps looks far better than a lot of other developers(look at instance for example) and I appreciate all the work he goes through to make our experience as good as possible.

    I like the style of his app for 6sec but for 6tagram its odd, instance has a better UI for instagram

    I love his Wiki app and use it frequently. I downloaded 6sec, but never used it yet, so I can't speak on it's design.

    What don't you like about his app exactly? Always best to give specific examples and solutions. Doing that helps devs out.

    I like his work, actually. If Microsoft or Vine or Instagram does not act for Windows phone, I am glad he steps up.

    However, I am disappointed in the fact that 6sec is "free", but you have to pay to post. While I understand these things cost money to make and maintain, make it pay up front.

    Problem is that some people will think the exact opposite. Really is a catch 22....

    I'm not sure, but were you around in the early WP7 days over 2 years ago?

    In those days 3rd party clients for YouTube were a joke compared to what we have on WP today. One app, i.e. LazyTube, wasn't particularly pretty nor functional, it had to launch YouTube videos through the browser. However, over the course of a few months the amazing developers at LazyWorm brought the YouTube client's functions up to par with Google's official YouTube apps on iOS and Android. In some respects, this 3rd party client was better than Google's official apps. The app I am talking about is none other than MetroTube

    Instance is still a version 1.0 product, though a damn good one compared to the way MetroTube and others started out. Rudy did an awesome job and I am excited to see how he will evolve and further develop the app, exciting times ahead.

    Also, having seen LazyWorm and other developers (e.g. Davide Bergamini, Seles Games, Liquid Daffodil and WPC's own Jay Bennet) grew their apps over the past couple of years on WP is probably the reason why I am sticking with this platform. It's just amazing to see these people contribute in such amazing and unique ways, so kudos to all of them, especially Rudy for a great showing with Instance!

    Instance isn't Rudy's app mate, it's made by Daniel Gary :-) Rudy Hyun is beta testing '6stagram' his own Instagram client

    I know that, I'm just saying that I like how Rudy has 6sec(vine) layout, but I like how Daniel has instance (instagram). Rudys 6tagram is obviously more featured but I still like instance's UI better. It feels more like a official instagram app to me

    Yeah I think the style works wonders for Vine, not so much for IG.
    It's weird.

    Instances UI is a tad blah to me especially since we have 6sec and 6stagram.

    The filters for it suck instance as well.

    I'm just glad we have an app that is actually going to work well and be better supported than instance ever was.

    I like his "style" it looks VERY nice. However, I would much prefer a more metroish UI. I prefer Instance's UI but I still like Rudy's take on UI :)

    I think one change that needs to be made is move the "My Profile" and "Activity" buttons to the bottom.

    U say "...ever was." like its been out for a long time. Instance has only been out a month or 2. Its practically a beta, itself. I do believe that 6stagtam will win me over from Instance, but u can't deny that Instance is a great app.

    Rudy and Gary both have excellent design sense. Clean, minimal and functional. If you don't like it, you probably don't have good taste!
