Award-winning mobile app is the leader in mobile photography
San Diego, CA—June 19, 2012—Leading photography software developer Nik Software (www.niksoftware.com) exceeds the 9 million-user mark for Snapseed (www.snapseed.com), its popular photo editing and sharing app, for iPad and iPhone. Snapseed was released in June 2011. Within 6 months of its release, Snapseed was named iPad App of the Year in the iTunes Rewind 2011 and in 2012 received the coveted TIPA award for Best Mobile Photo App from the international Technical Imaging Press Association. With the extraordinary growth and popularity of mobile photography, the company expects to double its customer base in the coming year. Snapseed is available for all iOS devices and will ship for Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months. The Company’s Snapseed product line was recently expanded to include compatibility with Mac OS and Windows computers.
“Everyone now wants a photography experience that is not limited by their device and expects the same level of quality from mobile photography that they have with their cameras and computers,” said Michael J. Slater, President and CEO of Nik Software. “We have developed top photography software and technologies for well over a decade and we will continue to leverage this as we grow the Snapseed experience.”
Snapseed includes many of Nik Software’s patented and award-winning technologies found in its professional product line, including the company’s revolutionary U Point technology, which enables precise, selective enhancements to be made to any area of a photo. One-click adjustments in Snapseed quickly improve and stylize photos and enable users to edit and filter photos on the go and share them via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and email.
