Adobe yesterday launched the Android app for Revel, the service that lets you manage your photos and share them privately with the ones you love. Revel makes it easy to sync photos across different devices of yours and works just as Apple's iCloud.
Revel also allows users to make groups, albums and gives users a nice set of editing tools for making their photos look better. Users can post photos to their favorite social network right from the app. All the photos, videos and albums which are on your Revel account can be accessed not only from the Desktop apps but also from the Web.
