Google has announced it will stop selling and developing Snapseed for Mac. According to a recent blog post, which details a number of different products that will be shut down, the popular image editor for Mac will still be supported by the Mountain View company via Nik Software, which it purchased last year.

Snapseed for Mac has already been pulled from the Mac App Store, as have the majority of the references to it on Nik Software’s website, but the iOS version remains available for download. In the announcement, Google assured users that this would be the case, saying: “We’ll continue to offer the Snapseed mobile app on iOS and Android for free.”

Elsewhere in the announcement, Google announced it would sunset its popular Reader service – a web-based RSS reader. The announcement has sparked some controversy among members of the tech community who use the service regularly.
