I just discovered that Nik Software have released Snapseed for $20 for Windows and for Mac. This includes the U-Point Technology!

I have successfully defined it as external editor in LR 4.

Further to my testing, I had a photo of our gray puppy, taken on a D300 in raw format. I imported it into LR 4 and also opened it in NX2. NXX2 did a brilliant rendition, whilst LR 4 had a colour cast and lacked the same feel/clarity. Even manually, I could not get to the same output quality as NX2. I then tried an external edit from LR to Snapseed and good a fantastic result in under 5 minutes. This is all very subjective, but never the less I think it has anecdotal value. By the way, I am using a 27" Dell IPS monitor calibrated using a Spyder 3. All programs were running on the same setup.

Just my 2 cents' worth...
