UPDATED: Vine client, 6Sec, now available as PRIVATE beta for Windows Phone 8

UPDATE: Apologies, but the beta for 6Sec is a private beta, not a public one. That was a screw up on the part of this here writer. Sorry about that.

Last week we gave you a little peek at Rudy Huyn's unofficial Vine (www.vine.co) client app for Windows Phone 8. That app, 6Sec, is now available for download in PRIVATE beta form in the Windows Phone Store for you to evaluate.

Following the recent craze over Instagram and SnapChat, Vine is the latest target for third-party developers. There's no indication that Vine will be putting out an official app of their own, so it's good to know that someone like Rudy Huyn is on the case.

We'll keep you posted on the beta progress for 6Sec.

It's a private beta isn't it? People not approved can't install it.

SahilShah says:

Not allowed to download, even though it is supposed to be a public beta...

tbkern466 says:

This may be a stupid question, but how do you get permission to download it?

Miistercoool says:

I have the same question O.O

aguszucca says:

Check the devs twitter account, its says how can you get the permission to download it

bono5112 says:

Won't let me download, says I don't have permission

oolgac says:

Is anyone else getting a message saying they don't have permission to download the app?

Steven Banks says:

Same issue here, at 11:55 Pacific... No Permission error

jiffffy pop says:

I'm getting the same thing as people above.

surfacenerd says:

Don't have permission to download app :(

razorguy says:

No permission. Lame.

arnieman says:

Pretty sure it's a closed beta...

rudyhuyn says:

Hi guys !!! I think that the writer make a little mistake, in fact it's a real beta, not a hidden published application, so I need to register your live id to add you to the allowed list.
What is the difference between a real beta and a hidden published application : I can upload the app in 1 hour, don't need to wait 4 days that the Store validates the app. So I can fix bugs very quickly and this is the purpose of this beta before the public release.
So, I have some token if you want to test, register you here, I will add your account asap : 

Thanks! Sent my I.D.

SahilShah says:

Cool! I.D. Sent!
