VSCO Cam's presets promise "elegant results, previously unattainable on Android."

The popular iOS app VSCO Cam has officially launched an Android version. Now, Android users have access to the same adjustable filters and editing tools that made VSCO Cam a hit amongst the hippest iPhone photographers.

From VSCO Cam's announcement:

Available for most Android 4.0+ devices, VSCO Cam represents major advancements in mobile photography image processing. Available on iOS since June of this year, we've seen VSCO Cam grow rapidly, gathering a large following. Taking what we've learned from developing VSCO Film®, as well as VSCO Cam for iOS, we've achieved results previously unattainable on Android devices. We offer the highest quality of Presets and Tools available for Android photographers.

[...]Along with these stunning Presets and incredible Tools, VSCO Grid? will also be accessible to Android users through the VSCO Cam app. Defined by Creativity, Curation and Connection, VSCO Grid is a minimalist publishing platform that honors both art and artist. Built as an online gallery for mobile photographers to showcase their best work, VSCO Grid will be available to both Android and iPhone users alike.

Doesn't work on my LG Lucid. It forces the resolution to a setting that the camera doesn't support (3072x1728 on a 2560x1920 sensor), resulting in an image that's just a bunch of lines. Since VSCO provides no controls, there's no way to reset the resolution to anything that works.

I just upgraded to the LG G2, and I'm now a believer. With a top-notch phone, VSCO Cam really delivers. With a low-end phone, not so much.

looks fine but I really can't figure out how to actually save photos. The photos are shown in the app gallery but they are nowhere to be found in the internal memory or SD card. Actually the very first photo I took showed in the internal memory but after that none I took did. I can delete photos from the gallery app though. Go figure.

Go to the Gallery, mark photos you want, click on Share icon, click on Save to Gallery. Done. :)

Works almost flawlessy on my S4. Just stopped one time when I was trying to export one edited image to my VSCO folder in my phone, but I just exported it again and then it worked. To bad theres only two filters that look like film, The C1 preset, all the others are virtually useless. But it was free, so I will buy some more presets when my "adobe"-canceled credit-card is renewed :) Thanks VSCO! I could have payed for ONLY the C1-preset.
