Phototag has just been updated with a couple more themes to add information overlay for your photos. Version 1.3 now has a total of six overlay themes: Place, Weather, Food, Baby, Speedometer, and Date+Time. The latest version also brings localization updates, wide tile support, and availability for Windows Phone 7.5 devices.

Phototag is only 2 months old at the Windows Phone Store. We’re following it closely because we’re big fans! It's handy for documenting captured moments on the photo itself and sharing the photo with others. The UI is minimal with bold colors good-looking typography. The swiping gestures also feel like this app is made specifically for Windows Phone.
