Google set unveil Snapseed for Android?
Google may be close to releasing its version of the Snapseed mobile app, if new chatter is to be believed. A few of Vic Gundotra’s followers (Google+) noticed a small detail yesterday when he posted a photo to his account with a tiny reference to the app.
As a quick refresher, Google acquired Snapseed’s developer, Nik Software, in September. Perhaps as a way to peel off a few iOS photo lovers, it’s also possible that Google wanted to bolster its arsenal with an Instagram-like experience for Google+. Whatever the case, Google promises that users will be able to “create photos they absolutely love” with Nik’s “high-end tools and plug-ins.” Almost universally loved, Snapseed for Android gets us excited, regardless of heavy Google+ ties or not.
There are some outlets reporting that this Snapseed app will have tight integration with Google+, something one might logically expect. That said, there’s also a chance that this particular image was uploaded via iPhone. Another possibility is that Google+ is just showing that the photo was shared via Snapseed as a standalone app.
