It has long been suggested that the default iPhone camera app is inadequate to support the hardware mounted on the Apple devices. VSCO CAM is one such app that takes your device’s camera to the next level.

However, in an app store populated by a slew of camera apps, what sets VSCO CAM apart from most other camera apps would be its social network integration. While the app is very easy to use and navigate, the same can be said for most of the other camera apps around. Hence, the only outstanding feature of VSCO CAM would be how easy it is to upload snapshots onto social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram.

With that said, VSCO CAM with its panels and tabs navigation system is a breeze to use. Editing and applying of filters on photos is totally fuss free, and truly an extremely easy process. One does not have to be a top grade photographer to understand how simple it is to present beautiful shots with this app.

The most unjustifiable point of getting VSCO CAM would be the price of the app. Detractors may argue that they can get decent, if not better camera apps for free if they searched hard enough on the app store. However, due to its ease of use without compromising on the quality of photos taken plus the ability to integrate with your favorite social networks, for $0.99 this app definitely gets my vote.

Who Is It For:Photography fans.

Read the Developer's Notes:
The Beautifully Simple Camera App

VSCO Cam™ is an easy-to-use iPhone camera app with elegant, minimal processing options. The sleek interface and streamlined workflow enable you to quickly create beautiful images to share via major social media outlets and (coming soon) your VSCO Site.

VSCO Cam™ yields the best results using the iPhone 4s and iPhone 4, but also plays well with the iPhone 3gs, iPod Touch (4th Generation) and the iPad (2nd and 3rd Generation).
