Some exciting news for the mobile photographers amongst you – VSCO Cam is set to launch an Android app later this year.
Having already enjoyed a successful launch on iPhone and iPad, VSCO Cam will be one of few camera and photography apps to make the jump to Android devices. While a few bigger names like Instagram and Imgur are available to download through Google Play, the store doesn’t have nearly as many photo options as its iOS equivalent.
“We receive a lot of requests for new tools or features but perhaps none more than VSCO Cam for Android,” said a post on the company’s blog. “As mobile devices evolve, cameras in many Android devices have greatly improved and are capable of fantastic image quality.”
Alongside the announcement, VSCO Cam has launched a version of the app for private Beta testing on the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S3. It is thought that the app will launch first on these higher-end phones, before being gradually rolled out to more Android 4.0+ devices.
The blog added: “We are in search of beta testers who love mobile photography and Android devices. Beta testing is not always glamorous but is required to provide the Android photography community with the best VSCO Cam possible. We are looking for dedicated, passionate people who can test the app, find bugs and provide constructive feedback.”
VSCO Cam is known for its clean, simple interface and a wide range of filters borrowed from the company’s Adobe Lightrooom desktop app. VSCO Cam also gives the user plenty of options for tweaking their image once its taken with a stylish gesture-based layout.
