VSCO Cam has found great popularity with the iPhone set and now it’s finally coming to Android. The camera app provides a suite of filters and photo editing tools that take mobile phone photography nearer to the professional level. You can grab it on Google Play Store here!
VSCO Cam comes from a company that makes add-ons and filters for professional grade photo editing software like Lightroom and Aperture. VSCO took its expertise to the mobile arena with its iOS app, processing the photos from the iPhone camera to get pictures that look like they came from standalone shooter.
Its Android app is live today in the Google Play store, after months of beta testing. It will be compatible with most modern Android devices so go ahead and grab it. The app is free and comes with 10 preset filters, but there are 38 additional presets you can buy.
