Aviary launches first international edition of its photo editor in Japan


If you’ve been following our YouTube channel, you may have seen our recent interview with Aviary CEO Tobias Peggs here in Tokyo (see above). The company has been gearing up for the launch of its first international edition of its Aviary photo editor app here in Japan. They inform us this morning that the app, designed for iOS7, is now live and available as a free download on the App Store.

Aviary explains that will be Japan exclusive content available in this version of the app, including filters, frames, and yes, stickers too. You will, however, need to have your device set to Japanese in the region and language settings to be able to see this. Sharing to Line is also supported, although we haven’t tested this out yet.

When we spoke with Tobias, he explained to us that Japan is going to be a big focus for Aviary in the near future, and he’s going to be spending a lot of time here in person, which is good to see. Japan does photo apps like no other country in the world, so we expect that Aviary will be able to find many more local partners to use their photo editing technology in their own services [1].

For more information, check out Aviary’s home on the Japanese web at Aviary.jp. Or read more about the launch on the Aviary blog.
