Photo Editor by Aviary arrives on Windows Phone 8
Major app developers are starting to notice Windows Phone 8. The tiled smartphone operating system got Adobe Reader, BBC iPlayer, Pandora, Spotify, Team Viewer, Temple Run, Tumblr, all in the past couple of months, with Flipboard, Oggl Pro, Path and Vine to arrive "soon".
But, amidst all the major launches and announcements, Aviary also released its photo-editing app, which almost flew under the radar.
Called Photo Editor by Aviary, the new Windows Phone 8 app follows its popular Android and iOS counterparts in offering a suite of tools designed to enhance captured pictures. Users can apply filters and stickers, crop, rotate and brighten photos, among the main highlights.
There are other features available as well like brightness, contrast, saturation and sharpness tweaks, red-eye removal, the ability to add text and draw on the photo. Users can also share the end results through the built-in Windows Phone 8 feature (after tapping, and holding, on the thumbnail).
Photo Editor by Aviary is free but, according to the official blog post, this will only happen "for a limited time". Presumably, afterwards, the offering will default to in-app purchases or join the paid ranks (the former seems more plausible though, if the Android and iOS counterparts are of any indication).
Photo Editor by Aviary is available to download from Windows Phone Store.
