If you haven’t heard of Snapseed (I must admit, I hadn’t), its a photo editing app for iOS packed full of powerful tools allowing you to capture, enhance, edit, email and share your photos via social networks. It’s kind of like Instagram but a whole lot more powerful.
While it started out on iOS, Snapseed was to Android after January 2012. Unfortunately, it was never launched on the Play store. Despite this, Google has taken the steps to acquire Nik Software, the developer of Snapseed.
It’s unsurprising, in that it gives Google access to a powerful photo editing application that could — quite soon — be integrated tightly into the Android experience. The UI is very finger-friendly, meaning it would be a great addition to the Camera / Gallery combination in stock Android.
