Google acquired Nik Software today, developer of the famous iOS app known as Snapseed and the reason probably is to go head-to-head with Instagram, which is one of the most famous photo app available on Android and iOS, and it’s downloaded more than 5 million times by Android usersFacebook purchased it for $1 billion back in April.

There are around 9 million Snapseed users on iOS, and it also won iPad App of the Year as well, though Google purchased it to bring some action to Google+.”We want to help our users create photos they absolutely love, and in our experience Nik does this better than anyone,” Google+ boss Vic Gundotra wrote in a blog post.

We also hope to see a Snapseed application for Android, and we hope it will happen anytime soon now. So tell us, do you think Google’s Snapseed would be good enough to take down Instagram? Yes or No? Tell us about it in the comment box below.

    Nik is much more than Snapseed and Snapseed is the smalles product of them I guess. Google is clearly aiming even more for the professional photographers who love to use G+.to make their experience even better.

    Snapseed, I should say, is probably one of the best, if not the best, smartphone photo editing tool EVER! It’s very powerful and versatile.
