Not too long ago, Google announced that they will be acquiring Nik Software, the developer behind popular photography software for the computer and apps for mobile devices, more notably Snapseed which is available on iOS. Now we’re sure that many iOS users were a bit worried when Google announced the acquisition given the whole iOS versus Android debate going on, plus with Apple giving Android manufacturers a hard time, perhaps Google might want to “punish” iOS users by taking away certain popular apps.
Fortunately that will not be the case and for those who are worried, you can rest assured as according to Google’s Senior VP of Engineering, Vic Gundotra, he released a statement allaying the fears by saying that Nik Software’s programs and apps will be here to stay.
“Earlier this week I proudly welcomed Nik Software to Google. They’ve been making pictures more awesome for 17 years, and we’re excited to bring Nik’s expertise to the entire Google community.
I also want to make something clear: we’re going to continue offering and improving Nik’s high-end tools and plug-ins. Professionals across the globe use Nik to create the perfect moment in their photographs, and we care deeply about their artistry.”
