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.

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.
