Aviary's New Android Showcase App is Here


Today we're announcing version 2.4 of our Showcase App for Android, which introduces a brand new tool and improves a few existing favorites. Go ahead and grab it from the Google Play Store to check it out.

The first thing you'll notice about 2.4 is the new Focus tool. This has been one of our most requested features for a while now so we're excited to finally be able to offer it in our Showcase App. Focus is our take on a tilt shift tool, which selectively adds a circular or rectangular blur to any photo. This is perfect for drawing attention to a particular part of a photo or going for the classic tilt shift effect that turns photos into miniature-looking scenes. Tried the tool and have some feedback? Let us know. We use this Showcase App as a vehicle for testing out new features before releasing them to the thousands of developers who use our photo editing SDK, so your feedback is incredibly valuable.

We also updated the incredibly popular Splash tool to make it way easier to use. It's now even better at selectively adding color back into any photo. Lastly, we've reworked the Effects tool under the hood to be faster. We've got a lot of great new effects coming soon, so be on the lookout. Just click the 'Get More' button inside the Effects tool to see whats available.
