Adobe Revel Comes to Android, A Private Photo Sharing Service With Cloud Sync

One of the best features of iOS is Photo Stream, an iCloud connected service that allows users to upload pictures to be shared in an album only select friends and family members can view. Android, though it now has Google+ backup of photos, still doesn’t feature an easy medium for friends and family members to upload pictures into one album. Adobe Revel, which has been on iOS for three years now, looks to fix this by coming over to Android with a nifty suite of features.

The main purpose of the app is to back photos up privately and only allow certain people to access them, much like Photo Stream. A practical use case would be at a family gathering, where everyone with a smartphone can take their own pictures and upload them to be privately seen by each other.

Another feature is the ability to edit pictures after they’ve been uploaded using the service, which can be handy if you want someone else to edit your pictures for you using the service. You can manage who has which permissions in one of these Group Libraries, though,  so your friends don’t go crazy deleting and editing photos.


  • Invite friends and family to join a Group Library, where you and your inner circle can create a huge collection of everyone’s photos and videos. You control who can view, add, organize, and edit the memories in a Group Library.
  • Create albums to keep your photos and videos organized.
  • Share albums with loved ones in private web galleries.
  • Share photos and videos on your favorite social networks.
  • Edit your photos to make your memories look their best.

Adobe Revel is available for free on Google Play, so go give it a whirl and let us know what you think.

    last I checked google + lets you share photos with select individuals as well. google + every feature this app does and more..

  • Bring back Android Flash Player. ICS version stopped working now 🙁 lost access to quite a few websites and embedded videos because of it.

    You can cry HTML5 all you want but until it works I dont care.

    Service is free for 30 days, then $5.99 a month. I’m getting very wary of apps written up on DL. I feel like you guys aren’t vetting them.

    • Or you could keep using the free plan with 50 uploads a month, which should be enough if you aren’t using it too often… But I get where you’re coming from, I should have mentioned that.

        Tons of reviews that sound something like this……

        #Words from the agreement#: you grant Adobe a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, transferrable, and sublicensable, license to distribute, modify, publish, reproduce, translate, and use Your Material for the purpose of operating and improving the Services and enabling your use of the Services.

        ….not cool.

  • I really only use Dropbox camera upload and Google+ photo backup… If I want to share something directly with friends or family I’ll email it to them or message it on Facebook…
