VSCO got its name from Visual Supply Co and it takes photo editing to a new height. It is basically divided into different sections- Camera, Grid, Journal and Library. So you can either click your masterpiece from VSCO cam or can import a picture from the gallery. VSCO supports editing history like desktop versions of Adobe Photoshop do.

The camera section is very minimalist. You can toggle grids, touch to focus and click a picture. That is all.

It is heavy on the filter aspect. Filters in VSCO are not just tap and apply. Filters are applied in separate layers and the end filter is the summation of the effects of all the applied filters. A history of all these operations is created and step to step undo/redo can be done.

The filters are named very conventionally as B1, B5, C5, F2 and so on to keep them non deceptive. And each filter offers you to select its intensity ranging from 0 to +12. Plus it includes the basic features of photo correction like saturation, contrast, crop and rotate. Most of the times, these are the only features you need.

Social sharing is given a great importance in this app. You can directly share your masterpiece photo edits to Instagram, Facebook and other social platforms. It has its own photo feed equivalent to Instagram. Great professional looking photos are shared on the feed after signing into the app.
