Aviary was a photo-editing platform for iOS, Android, Windows, and the web (web application). Aviary powers numerous mobile applications, including its self-titled iOS and Android apps, and a Windows app called Photo Editor. It contains a large collection of easy-to-use editing tools such as custom photo filters, frames, graphics, and overlays. The Aviary platform is also a free SDK that provides developers with a customizable photo editor that can be embedded into apps on iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, and the web.

The company was founded in 2007 with the goal of providing professional-quality photo-editing tools to the general public. Aviary has since received millions of dollars in funding from investors such as Spark Capital and Bezos. As of 2019, the company has run out of money and shut down, removing the application from all download areas. Expeditions.[1][2]
