VERY SATISFIED 5/5
By Maiz Abdulla
Ive been using VSCO for 4 years now, I’ve never been this satisfied with any mobile photo app. And love the updates and the basic minimal user interface.
great app! 4/5
i love vsco because it is community, unlike any other social media platform, that is about expressing yourself. instagram was originally for photography but has slowly come away from that. vsco is a safe place where the purpose of sharing images is to inspire and encourage others to create art through pictures. a lot of the images really mean something and are deep, where as instagram is just a competition for likes. i am now a vsco x subscriber and it has really helped me to get into photography. my only complaint would be the recommended accounts for me that seem irrelevant and it would also be cool to see people’s locations when they follow me. overall it’s a great app and i will continue to use it!
Almost perfect 4/5
I’ve been using the app for years now and I was really happy about the possibility to create ‘recipes’ to save my editing styles, but I won’t give 5 stars until the developers add the possibility to name those recipes. Unfortunately, not being able to name those recipes, it all gets very confusing and I always have to waste time trying them all on before figuring out which one I was looking for. I don’t think this is an unreasonable request, so please add a feature that lets us name the recipes we create.
Used to be a Fan, Now We’re Crashing 5/5
I use to love this app—best photo editing app out there. But since they added an “upgrade” version for extra $$$, the normal version crashes every single time I use it. So over it.
Yesterday I got a new phone and VSCO started working perfectly again. I went to bed feeling convicted of my 1 star review and thought to myself “I need to delete that” and thankfully I woke up to an email from VSCO, serving a nice reminder to do so (they reached out to offer help). I have since bought the VSCO X version and I am deeply pleased with this app once again 🖤 thanks, VSCO

Rip off 1/5
Took advantage of users once vsco became popular before you could just buy the filters that didn’t come free now it’s MONTHLY instead of a 1 time charge
Love this app for editing and posting but lately it’s been crashing. Every time I try to edit a picture or look at my news feed it either exits out of the app or the screen turns black and there’s a loading wheel then it crashes..
All of my images are gone. 2/5
I had recently updated the app and all of the images that were previously in my VSCO uploads are gone. How will I get them back?
5 stars 5/5
I love it!!!
Won’t let me import photos??? 1/5
By Paige is a dog
Just got the app and I’ve deleted it and re-downloaded it and it still says ‘error importing’
Great, Simple Editing 5/5
An essential app for mobile users. I use daily, and it’s a great way to give a photo enhancements that have character to them.
I wish the Journal mode on iPad had margins, right now the text flows edge to edge, which looks oddly like an old HTML website, and is hard to read.
A similar gripe to other reviews, I really don’t like how full screen photos are against a white background, and you can’t view them by themself—all the stats, hashtags, related images come with it at the bottom. A bit cluttered and makes the impact of the photo just feel like content, not a standalone photo.
The lastest update is so slow 3/5
I really like vsco, one of the best editing photo apps that I’ve used. Yet, I’m sorry I have to rate 3 stars for the lastest update. I’m using an iPhone 8 Plus, and it tooks me around 8-9 seconds to apply 1 preset to a photo instead of 1sec like the earlier versions. Please take a look at that, it’s really annoying. Thank you.
Too much like Instagram 4/5
The new update has made it so I see a bunch of photos from people I don’t follow. They are supposedly “tailored to my interests” but I haven’t seen one I like so far. I think we should have the option of having your algorithm determine what’s on our feed or not because I only got VSCO so I could post fun stuff and see what my friends posted, not what strangers are posting.
could use some improvement 4/5
vsco has always been an amazing app and its presets/tools still continue to amaze me. however, since their app layout changed last year, i have been disappointed a bit. some few things vsco needs to change:
1. bring back the old black grid please !! this grid allowed you to line your photos up next to each other, side by side, and made a good instagram feed planner. i feel like it’s a waste when i download other grid apps to plan my next post.
2. it takes too long to edit. it was much quicker when i had to decide between +2 or -2 instead of +2.5, +2.6, or -2.5, -2.6 etc.
3. vsco x could use a bit of improvement on adding moody/dark-toned presets but otherwise than that, it’s pretty good to use.
i would still prefer vsco over any other editing app but if vsco were to be able to make some minor changes, i’d give this app 5 stars.
Amazing App But Buggy Notifications 4/5
Okay, so this is literally my favorite app. I love how it’s based around art and photography compared to like Instagram that’s just about whatever. Another thing that’s better about this than Instagram is with insta, you’re constantly comparing yourself to other people’s accounts. How many likes do they have? How many followers? With VSCO, you don’t have that bc it doesn’t tell you. A+ to you guys.
My only complaint is the messaging part. And I realize it’s new so I’ve been trying to give y’all credit and I’m sure you guys will fix it but a lot of times I don’t get notifications even though they’re turned on. Every person I message on there says the exact same thing and that it’s a constant problem. So if you guys could work on that, I’ll gladly change my review to 5 stars.
I recommend this app to everyone. It’s wonderful and the community is great. I highly suggest downloading. If you plan on using messaging though, just keep checking them until it’s fixed.
2 Small Changes to Improve VSCO Mobile 3/5
When editing multiple photos at once (via VSCO Mobile), it would be helpful if the user could apply a recipe or paste an edit. The current version only allows for create a journal,’ ‘share,’ ‘save to cameral roll, or delete when multiple images are selected. If I recall correct, on an older version of VSCO allowed users to copy and paste edits… this makes editing multiple photos on a mobile device much easier.
Please add this feature in the future, it would be fondly appreciated.
Second recommend is to allow the user to upload photos from specific albums on their mobile device. Current version only allows for uploading from the Camera Roll. Which makes it difficult to edit images not taken most recently...
Unable to import images to my studio 2/5
For the past day or so I have received error messages when trying to import photos to my studio! I have tried force closing the app and logging out and logging back in. Please fix this!
it keeps glitching & closing out of the app everytime i look at someone’s republishes
Great app 5/5
I love it because it's not about likes or follows it's just to make pretty pictures and have a nice page
By K k k k kk k k k k
i love this app
I've used vsco for years and I've loved it. Recently it's been crashing and lagging when I'm scrolling through my pictures and if you can, please fix it, thanks!
Love it, but... 3/5
By Fefe and sherl
I love love love this app. It's got amazing filters and all that good stuff but recently when I try to edit photos it will close the app out. It will do it repeatedly until I fully turn off my phone and turn it back. It's really annoying and has been happening more and more recently. Please fix this otherwise the apps great!
I bought the E1-8 filters and now they’re taken away. Not okay! Seriously guys?? I love this app bc of how inclusive it was, no membership just fun editing but now with this VSCO X it’s just sad.
Love it 5/5
This is my favorite app to edit pictures and i just started paying for a yearly membership . Up until now it’s worked out for me but when I’m trying to edit my pictures like the exposure and stuff the buttons move by them selves and it won’t let me edit the way i want to. I hope it can be fixed because I really love this app
What is going on 1/5
With this new update. I am unable to change the contrast and exposure! Or anything else. It just stays frozen in the middle of the picture. Unbelievable.
Is there really any competition? 5/5
By Maxx Diaz
C’mon...it’s VSCO. They’ve been killing it since their inception and continue to stay stylish and on point.
i love vsco!! it provides such a cool workspace in a v judgefree environment:) i feel i can post as much as i want and i truely look at my vsco as a documentation of my life, and a beautiful thanks to their amazing filters and editing tools:)
Won't restore purchases! 1/5
By Ana Ordaz
I can't restore purchases, with last update my purchased filters disappeared. I tried restoring them but nothing happens. I've already tried erasing and downloading the app again but nothing is working. The ones I've purchased show a downward arrow when I click on them a message pops trying to charge me again. I've purchased 8 packs and none of them can't be restored (used)!
ONE THING 3/5
The app is great, filters and everything are stellar. BUT the new update crashes my app when I try to view my profile!!! PLEASE fix this!
Love this app 5/5
Excellent editing app! (also u guys should consider adding a remove highlight/shadow option instead of just adding) Thanks!
By Flexible arianna
The app has been blacking out or showing a white screen then it will return me to home
Could use some more features.. 4/5
Hello, I only have a few suggestions and that would be such as editing photos already posted. I have a lot of photos posted on my VSCO and I realized one photo isn’t the proper orientation and if there was a way to edit photos already posted it would be much appreciated.
Best Photo Editor; Needs to eliminate white background 4/5
I’ve been using VSCO to start editing amateur photography a few years and now I’m a professional photographer with clients. I still use VSCO for it’s power and simplicity. I loved them because they were one of a few editors at the time that didn't’ compress the quality of image and could edit in RAW. The expansion of Community and Discover features made it pleasantly more social.
However, a few months ago (or even a year ago) they switched to an all white background. This hurts my eyes when looking at my Studio and doesn’t give colors full justice. It seems VSCO is aware editing photos should use a dark background - that’s the case when editing with filters or tools. But Studio and Discover tabs are unappealing with white background and I tend to exit the app sooner because of this. iOS’ Smart Invert colors (the only loophole I’m aware of) doesn’t work with VSCO images. Please revert to a darker background or make the option available to us. Long-time user here. Would gladly pay one-time fee for Strength, Character, & Warmth tool instead of subscription. Thanks!
I love vsco but fix it 3/5
Phone resets EVERY SINGLE TIME I click on VSCO. :/ can’t support the app if I can’t even use it.
By Ak izzy
jk it wasnt an update i was randomly signed out? and now i cant sign in my acc it says request timeout
Happy but pissssed 4/5
I love this app. The edits and the settings etc are wonderful but there is a major issue that I have dealt with in the past years. This app NEEDS to have a backup for studio. I have lost SO many photos due to having to redownload the app and losing everything I edited in studio. It’s is an terrible bummer. Years of photos in edit have been lost. Please fix so no one has to go through what I have
WHAT HAPPENED ?!? 1/5
Ok so I love VSCO and I’m really infuriated right now, as my link and my app do not work at all! All of the pages have an error and the only thing that loads is the studio page! This is absolutely ridiculous!
New update 2/11/18 1/5
By Amber Kovacik
I can’t sign in!! Goes between saying the server timed out and the server error. Uruegehsh!!!
Wouldn’t use 1/5
There’s nothing good you can do without paying $20 a month. Also there’s no help area where you can EMAIL someone not just type questions into a box.
I use this sm for Instagram! 5/5
I love this app so much! The filters are so simple and fun! although you could add more free filters than the choices you get but I still love the app!!💗
Can't even sign up 1/5
Tried signing up with my phone number and it was never able to verify the code even though it was correct. Ugh
FAVORITE APP 5/5
this is the best app ever. I am able to use cool filters and post my artsy aesthetic pics on this. Love it
i love vsco sm bc i can edit my pics and the filters are supa cute. i edit all my pics w vsco!!!!💞
Useful suggestion 5/5
I love the app and have currently no problems with it. However, if I could have VSCO magic on my videos too then I'd be extremely happy. Instead of paying for the VSCO X pack, could you make an alternative way of obtaining the option to edit videos? Maybe an one time $3 or 5 dollar payment for it would truly make this app amazing.
Thank you for doing what you do VSCO team!
i love vsco! 5/5
it has a lot of features to edit photos & i love it!
Mixed feelings 3/5
VSCO’s presets are fantastic, if overwhelming. I need to get more familiar with them so I can start favoriting and/or hiding some. The interface is not easy to get accustomed to. I strongly dislike that VSCO requires importing and exporting photos between itself and your photo library—I want to modify the photo usually (Darkroom’s options are better this way).
By Brandon mccleskey
This app is absolutely amazing. It is by far the best editing app on IOS. However, their refund policy for their users is horrendous. No refunds for any purchases, whatsoever. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous. A system should be set up where you can cancel a subscription within a certain period. I do understand this is my fault, but I just got charged $20 for a VSCO X subscription that I probably will never use again, because I wanted the free trial for one video I had. If this policy is fixed, this app will be by far one of the best apps created.
Slow, crashes on older devices 3/5
Very Slow and crashes on iPhone 6 Plus.
Love VSCO 4/5
I love this app, I’ve been using it for already 5 years now I believe. You can’t go wrong with this app, everyone always ask you what app you use because they love the edits. But sadly, they took away that Syncing option, so when you make an account and have your pictures under that account, then download the app on another device, those pictures would no longer transfer to other devices, even if you have an account and it’s under your account. Which I don’t really get why they took that away? I still use the app now, but I don’t have all of my old pictures in my account on my new phone which really. bothers me.
