Snapseed Receives iPhone 5, iOS 6 Support and Loses Flickr Sharing

Snapseed, probably the easiest iOS photo-editing apps to learn, has just been updated on the App-Store to receive iPhone 5 and iOS 6 support. We have went as far as to label Snapseed “the best photo editing app” on the market. Click here to view our full video review of the application.

Along with iPhone 5 and iOS 6 support, Nik Software has removed one feature from the application: Flickr support. The developers assured to note that the move was temporary due to a violation “of the Apple App Store Guidelines.” A deal is currently in the works with Apple and Flickr in-attempt to resurface this popular feature.

Snapseed’s parent company, Nik Software, was acquired by Google last month. Vic Gundotra, Google’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, said users shouldn’t stress the future of Nik Software’s products because Google will continue to update the software: (via The Next Web)

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.

When Google acquired the popular email client Sparrow, they announced that they would no longer provide updates for the client. Google wanted to assure users that this wouldn’t be the case with Snapseed too.

Thoughts? Sounds like a good update besides the temporary loss of Flickr.
