    Google Buys Snapseed Developer - Nik Software

    Snapseed is one of the best photography apps available for both the mobile platform and the PC environment. It contains a wide range of tools, from simple straightening and cropping to the more elaborate grunge effects. With an Android version underway, Snapseed developer Nik Software has been acquired by Google for an undisclosed amount.

    With Facebook’s recent acquisition of Instagram, that proved to be a very profitable move, Google may be looking to release their own software based on another very popular service.   Both Nik and Google’s Senior Engineering VP Vic Gundotra are silent on the exact plans but it’s not hard to imagine an upcoming social photo service from Google or some extra features integrated into Google+. Here is what Vic Gundotra stated on Google+:

    “We want to help our users create photos they absolutely love, and in our experience Nik does this better than anyone,” 

    Gundotra also stated that Google+ had hit over 400 million users this week and had just crossed 100 million monthly active users.
