Snapseed (finally) gets an update: more editing tools, more options

In the world of apps, not getting an update for two years is almost like a death sentence. Well, not really, (especially if you're owned by Google), but it also means that you might not get any new downloaders, or that people already using your app might find some other alternative, one that brings new features every few months or so. So it's with a sigh of relief that finally, after two years, Snapseed has received an update, bringing with it new tools and more options to use.
