A year after being designated the iPad App of the year by Apple in 2011, Nik Software's impressive tablet photo editor comes to Android. Maybe that's not such a huge surprise, considering that Android creator Google purchased Nik Software, the maker of Snapseed, this past September. Though it doesn't have quite the stunning interface of Apple's iPhoto for iOS and some of the mind-blowing content-aware tricks of Adobe Photoshop Touch, Snapseed remains one of the most powerful image editors available for tablets. Best of all? It's now free
(as is its iOS counterpart).
Snapseed for Android's interface is nearly identical to that of the iPad app. It's simple and clear, yet it packs in a lot of power and in-depth detail. After you open or shoot a photo, you'll see rectangles along the bottom of the screen (or along the side if you're in landscape orientation), which you can swipe through to choose edits, adjustments, and effects. Simple swiping gestures let you adjust contrast, brightness, and color; or you can have the program choose those automatically or choose control points in the image.http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2413000,00.asphttps://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.niksoftware.snapseed
