Adobe Revel gets Android importer

Adobe gifts Revel with minimal Android compatibility.

Adobe tosses a bone to Android users who subscribe to Revel (nee Carousel ), its Apple-only photo-collaboration service. Its new Revel importer Android app does exactly what it says and no more: allows you to upload images from your Android device into your Carousels. You can set it to autoupload, as well as upload straight from the camera. When you select photos to upload, the app will indicate whether or not you've already transferred them.

That's pretty much it.

If you use Revel on multiple platforms, this is disappointing. Forget the editing capabilities: you still can't sync Carousels with Android or Windows devices or even display them in a Web browser.

You can get the app in the Android Market.
