Fly Labs video editing apps will be integrated with Google Photos according to statements from both Google and Fly Labs. Google announced acquiring Fly Labs, with the famous video editing apps bound to be integrated soon.
Fly Labs is known for its iOS video editing apps. Until now, Clips, Fly, Tempo and Crop have been exclusively tied to iOS and iOS users’ knack for great, easy and accessible design. All the work will now benefit Google Photos. According to Fly Labs’s statement:
“It’s a perfect match for what we built at Fly Labs, and we’re looking forward to folding our technology into Google Photos”.
For the following three months Fly Labs will continue offering Clips, Crop, Tempo and Fly. At the same time, Google made a shift from in-app purchases to free purchases for the same timeframe.
Fly Labs has an impressive record when it comes to the video editing apps developed under its umbrella. During just 18 months, the apps have been downloaded three million times. The New York City-based company has been set up by Tim Novikoff. Main target: making the best out of mobile video and bringing forth a load of expertise.
For iOS users who have enjoyed perfect exclusivity until now, the Fly Labs video editing apps have brought easy access to great video design. No complicated options or menus. With just a few taps and swipes, any video could have reached perfection.
Tempo offers the possibility to adjust the tempo of videos via integrated presets. Crop is really useful: any video may be converted from landscape mode to portrait mode or the other way around.
Fly Labs video editing apps will be integrated with Google Photos, although the technicalities are still elusive. Google Photos doesn’t support video editing at the moment. Creating a patchwork of photos into GIFs or short videos based on specifically designed algorithms is commendable, yet it defeats the purpose. Perhaps the Fly Labs team will pool expertise to finally bring editing to Google Photos too.
Fly Labs apps are still available for free in the App Store for the following 3 months. No more updates are to follow. After the deadline, the video editing apps will continue working on iOS, but they will no longer be available for download.
