Aviary Camera and Photo Editing App for iOS and Android

Aviary

Aviary is now available as an app on both iOS and Android.  The app features a camera function, as well as powerful image editing features that allow you to apply Instagram-like looks, crop, rotate, add text and lots more.

At first blush, Aviary appears to be one of the better Android apps that I’ve used, although Camera Awesome and/or Camera+ should measure at or above Aviary’s features on iOS devices.

The app is free with additional presets available for in-app purchase.  You can find Aviary on the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store.
