Is VSCO Cam the next Instagram?

Ellis Hamburger for The Verge:

…one corner of Instagram remains a sanctuary of excellent mobile photos. There are more than 4 million of them, and they’re all tagged #vscocam.

The photos were posted directly from VSCO Cam, which has quickly emerged as the premier mobile photography app on iPhone (and soon, on Android).

Love this app.

When I take a photo in iOS, it’s typically shot by the stock Camera app (from the lock screen), edited in VSCO Cam, and shared on Instagram. I would love to be able to launch VSCO Cam directly from the lock screen though, because it has individual focus and exposure controls, which the Camera app does not.

VSCO Cam is not the next Instagram, but it is a very fine mobile photography app.
