Adobe was glad to announce that it acquired Aviary, the photo-editing platform that powers lots of mobile applications, including the self-titled Aviary apps for iOS and Android. By joining Adobe, Aviary will help make Creative Cloud a vibrant platform for third-party apps. By acquiring Aviary, Adobe wants to develop a new Adobe Creative SDK and enable developers to build mobile apps that integrate with Adobe Creative Cloud.

“Aviary has an exceptional team and technology platform, as well as expertise serving a robust developer ecosystem. We're thrilled to leverage Aviary's technology to make our Creative SDK even more powerful for app developers,” said Scott Belsky, vice president of Creative Cloud Ecosystem & Behance at Adobe. “This is great news for developers because thousands of mobile apps will have the opportunity to become compatible with industry-defining desktop tools like Photoshop CC, as well as new Creative Cloud services."
