Snapseed for iOS Updated With New HDR Scape Filter, 'Shadows' Image Tuning Option

Award winning image editing app Snapseed has received little attention since being acquired by Google in late 2012, but today the app was updated to version 1.6.0, adding a new HDR-style filter and a new Shadows slider in the Tune Image options menu that is designed to brighten dark areas of an image without washing out the lighter areas.

What's new

- The new HDR SCAPE filter brings a stunning look to your images
- A new Shadows slider in Tune Image brightens dark areas naturally
- Plus bug fixes and other small improvements
According to the release notes, Snapseed users who are running the app on iOS 5 or iOS 6 should avoid the new update, as it causes issues with saving or sharing images. The problem will be fixed in a second update, which is coming soon.

Today's Snapseed update comes alongside multiple Google+ photo enhancements that will be introduced in the near future, including full-resolution uploads and automatic photo and video editing.

Snapseed is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Cool, but I don't need a push notification for every app update. Can't you make it so I can choose to only receive push when there are new frontpage stories?
