The last time we covered Aviary, the powerful mobile photo editor was limited to being launched as a plugin inside the stock gallery app. Now, Aviary the company has booted Aviary the photo editor from the nest, launching it as a standalone app. Users everywhere rejoice, as they can now find Aviary after installing it.

In addition to the apps' newfound independence, Aviary has added a few new features: a customizable interface, a color temperature tool, and basic effects like black and white and sepia tones. Oh, and a lovely new icon. All of the improvements add up to a nice increment to an already-great product. If you've already downloaded it, you can grab the update from the Play Store now, otherwise hit up the widget below to download it.

Rejected bird puns for this post include: "fly over to the Play Store", "apps of a feather launch together", and "the yolk's on Instagram."
