Aviary has just announced the launch of Aviary for Android and iPhone. It’s an SDK that gives developers the ability to integrate Aviary’s photo editing tools in their apps. It could be a great way to change how we upload photos.
As their blog post says, most applications that allow us to upload photos simply allow us to snap a picture then upload. Users who want to crop, remove redeye or adjust anything else, will usually have to switch apps, adjust the photo and then go back to upload from the camera roll.
The idea here is that it’s all done and integrated into the upload process. Here’s a portion of the post from their official blog:
As of today, any and all mobile developers will be able to inject Aviary’s photo editing functionality right into their own app – all without the fuss of developing it on their own. Currently, our SDK is available for iPhone and Android devices. iPad support is on the way, and our SDK is 100% compatible with the forthcoming iOS 5.
There are the basics: quick enhance, crop, flip, rotate, sharpen, blur, redeye removal, teeth whitening and blemish removal, etc. It also allows users to draw on the photo, so it’s pretty much what you need for fun with uploads.
So far, they have announced 31 launch partners, so it looks like plenty are on board.
