As promised, VSCO Cam, one of the most powerful and robust mobile photo-editing software, has been released for most devices running Android 4.0 and up. We’ve repeatedly sung the praises of the application here at TechnoBuffalo, but the software so far has only been available to iOS users. Not anymore. The same exact experience has been ported over to the Android ecosystem, creating beautiful parity between the two. The app is free and comes with ten Presets (filters) out of the gate, with other Presets and editing options available as in-app purchases.
If you haven’t yet experienced VSCO Cam, and you want more control over how your images look, you should really give the app a try. Images can either be taken in the app itself or imported from your camera roll, and applying presets is super simple. You also have control of aspects such as exposure, temperature, contrast and more. Altered images can be saved to your camera roll, or you can share them to any number of social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. VSCO Cam has a small social feature, too, called VSCO Grid, but that experience right now is relatively bare, and is merely there to allow users to showcase their best photos.
The interface of VSCO Cam takes some getting used to—it was completely redesigned recently—but it quickly becomes fluid and intuitive the more you use it. The app always seemed like a hidden gem for iOS, and now that it’s available to Android users, many more people have access to one of the best photo-editing experience in mobile.
