Snapseed making its way to Tegra-powered ICS tablets

Nik Software, the makers of the insanely popular photo editing app Snapseed, just announced that its app will finally make its way on select Android devices. Wait, there’s a catch. These “select Android devices” need certain requirements, like tablets running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 2 or Tegra 3 processor, and  a ridiculous resolution of 960 x 720 pixels or above.

Snapseed offers powerful tools that enables consumers to create amazing photos using features like capture, enhance, and edit, while being able to email and share those creations via social networks. The software company behind the app is excited about hitting the Android ecosystem.

“We’re very pleased to bring Snapseed to the Android tablet market,” said Michael J. Slater, president and CEO of Nik Software. “Offering Snapseed for Android tablets is a great opportunity for more users to experience the fun and creativity of photo editing and sharing. We worked with NVIDIA to make Snapseed fast and responsive for Android users everywhere.”

As an Android user myself, my current photo editing app of choice is PicSay Pro, which can be used on any Android device no matter what version OS. It sucks I won’t be able to compare Snapseed to PicSay Pro because of fatuous company requirements. Snapseed for Android is scheduled for an early 2012 launch and will cost $4.99 at the Android Market.
