VSCO Cam, available for download at the App Store and Google Play Store, can let you snap, edit, and share your photos all in one place. You can even import your existing photos and access all your pictures in one place. If you’ve ever experienced a time when you want to focus on something but it’s just too dark so you have to tap somewhere else, this is exactly the kind of problem VSCO Cam solves. No longer do you have to settle for darker but in focus photos or over-exposed and out of focus photos. VSCO Cam’s filter and editing options are also some of the best you’ll find. And the community of VSCO Cam is just growing and you’ll see the hashtags on relevant social channels being used.
