Google Acquires Nik Software, the Company Behind Snapseed

Sep 18, 2012

Google has been playing catch-up with Facebook for years - at least when it comes to the social media market. Now it's followed up Facebook's acquisition of super popular social photography app Instagram, with its own purchase of Snapseed - or more specifically, of Nik Software, the company behind Snapseed.

Snapseed is a photo-editing and sharing app, which allows users to do familiar things like add filters to photos they've taken and then share them with their social networks.
