Big news for the Windows Phone platform today as Aviary announced their SDK is now available for developers, allowing the integration of their free, highly regarded and powerful photo tools for apps on Windows Phone.
What this means for developers - you'll now be able to insert into your application a powerful photo editor to greatly enhance user experience, all with very little effort.
What this means for consumers - you'll soon see an array of apps that will allow you to edit, crop, enhance and tweak your photos before sending them out for the world, all at no extra cost
The Windows Phone Aviary SDK has the following features:
- Redesigned SDK from the ground-up to take advantage of the Metro design principles of Windows Phone
- The same, easy integration process: add our editor to your project in as little as 15 minutes, with just a few lines of code
- Customizable color theme
- Controllable output size based upon developer preferences — you decide what makes the most sense for your app or service
- … Not to mention that Aviary for Windows Phone has all the standard features as the rest of our mobile SDKs
What's more, we're pleased to announce the following launch titles will have Aviary integrated into their apps very soon:
As you can see in the video above, Rowi is one of the first apps to be getting the Aviary SDK treatment. Though version 2.1 looks like the current app in every which way, the change occurs when you try to attach a photo. You now have the option to hop right into a sophisticated photo editor which allows you to manipulate everything including brightness, sharpness, add filters, stickers, text, cropping and more.
The photo is then saved and you can Tweet as usual all without having to ever leave the Rowi Twitter app. Did we mention how good the photos look too?
More info can be found at the Aviary Blog and developers can grab the SDK here right now.
