Google Launches Snapseed Image Editor For Android, Slashes iOS Price


Snapseed made a splash when it arrived for iOS devices, giving users some easy-to-use tools to manipulate photos right on their phones and tablets. Google was so impressed with what it saw, that it up and bought the company. Now under Google’s control, Snapseed’s world is expanding, and today the app first becomes available for Android devices.

Users will need to be running Ice Cream Sandwich or better to take advantage of Snapseed, giving them access to a host of basic editing tools, along with an Instagram-like collection of visual effect filters. Of course, since this is Google’s baby now, there’s heavy Google+ integration, encouraging you to use the company’s social media venture to share those pics once you’re done tweaking them.

The Android version of Snapseed is available for free. Up until now, the iOS version had gone for nearly five bucks, but since it wouldn’t really be fair to just give Android users a free ride, Google is turning the iOS Snapseed into a free app as well.
