The makers of the best post-processing app available on iPhone, Snapseed, have been bought by Google. You can read the official statement here. I’ve reproduced it in its entirety for your convenience:

The Nik Software Team
The Nik Software folks make a tremendous desktop suite for photographer’s as well as the fantastic Snapseed app. I’m really curious to see the long term impact Google will have on these great photography tools. Google really cares about photography as witnessed by the Google+ social network. Overall, I think this is exciting news for photographers in general. I’m quiet interested in seeing what will become of Snapseed the one app that is in every workflow of my mobile photos.
