VSCO Cam review

VSCO Cam

A great photo editing app awaits you at the top of a steep learning curve

There are an uncountable number of photo editing apps available today, each with their own experience, editing tools and social engagement mechanisms. There are the big names like Instagram, Snapseed and Photoshop — but another app with a passionate following for a long time on iOS called VSCO Cam (derived from the name "Visual Supply Co") is also now thrown into the mix on Android.

In a world where Instagram has lost a bit of its "cool" factor among the more artistic and photography-focused users out there, VSCO Cam is a really great option. Though with a potentially over-simplified and tough-to-grasp interface, getting acquainted with this app definitely takes some time. Read along for our full review of VSCO Cam on Android.

0

A fantastic value for money way to protect your Galaxy S5

 

If you're serious about keeping your Samsung Galaxy S5 in good condition, then you might well have considered a flip case. The added protection you get from having a physical cover over the screen when it's in your pocket or bag can be worth suffering through some mild inconvenience for. They don't need to cost the earth, either, as this effort from Amzer proves.

OnePlus apparently thinks ladies are dying to get naked for a phone

151
Just don't get naked

"Ladies, no nudity please."

That's the admonition in the "Ladies First" OnePlus One invite contest, this time targeted for "ladies (and only ladies, sorry guys, ladies first)."

All the ladies have to do is take a picture of themselves with the OnePlus logo visible, post it to the OnePlus forum, and give OnePlus the rights to use that picture however it wants. (That's pretty standard legal stuff, but still.)

"The 50 most well-liked ladies will receive an invite and a Never Settle t-shirt," OnePlus says.

Oh, and try not to get naked. Because OnePlus knows you ladies apparently are just one contest away from GoneWild.

Redesigned Google Play Store hitting more devices

84
Google Play Store

According to, well, a lot of you fine folks out there, the new, redesigned Google Play Store is making its way to more devices today. (It started its trollout a couple weeks ago, pushing to just a small percentage of devices.)

If you've yet to experience it, things are pretty different. You've got some proper Material Design love. Promo graphics now dominate the app listings, with a play button overlay if the app has a promo video associated with it. (And a note to devs: those promo images become mandatory at the end of the month.) And we've actually seen a few other changes just in the past few weeks we've been running this version, with the number of downloads gaining a badge, and a few other little tweaks.

All in all, good changes. My only real complaint is that when a changelog runs more than a couple lines and you tap the "Read more" button, you then have to scroll through the whole app description to get back to the changelog. But that's a minor thing.

Look for the new Play Store to push to you any time now.
