Snapseed brings advanced photo editing tools to Android

Snapseed is released for Android.

Nik Software's robust photo editing app, Snapseed, has finally made its way to Android. The app, which is also available on iOS, lets you edit your photos using simple gesture controls, and allows you to share your newly-minted masterpieces via Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.

One of the best things about Snapseed is its relative ease of use. The app makes it extremely easy to change certain aspects of your photos without having to dig through countless menus or take a class at your local learning annex. Most edits can be done with a simple swipe, and you can always undo any changes you make. The basic controls lend themselves well to editing on a smaller screen, though the app is best experienced on a 7 or 10-inch tablet.

So if you're sick of Instagram and really want to make your photos pop, check out Snapseed. The app is available for free from the Google Play store, and is a must have for anyone that likes using their phone to take pictures.
