When Google announced that they would be acquiring Nik Software, developer of popular photography software and apps such as Snapseed, we’re sure that many iOS users panicked for a moment as they were worried that Google might put an end to Snapseed for iOS and make it an Android exclusive. Google of course reassured users that nothing of that sort will happen, and as far as Android users are concerned, it seems that Snapseed could be headed your way. While it was not mentioned explicitly, a recent photo uploaded by Google’s Senior Engineering VP, Vic Gundotra, has suggested that Snapseed for Android could be in the works.
The photo was uploaded onto his Google+ page and as you can see in the screenshot above, it was done so via Snapseed. For those wondering, Snapseed is an iOS-exclusive app that lets users edit photos on their mobile devices. It is safe to presume that with the acquisition of Nik Software, an Android port would be inevitable and hopefully this is proof of that happening. Either way for Android photography enthusiasts out there, this is very good news and hopefully we will see the app materialize in the near future.
