Well the developers have been teasing us long enough and now it’s time to download this fabulous app, that they are billing as ‘The standard of Mobile Photography’. The sample images that we have seen are incredibly impressive. There’s an incredibly interesting feature, perhaps above the others, which are impressive in their own right but one thing that really grabs our interest is the VSCO Grid which allows your images to be shown in a grid format within the app and online. You can share the images but there are no ‘likes’ or ‘comments’ areas, instead the developers want this to function solely as a gallery space and are adamant that this is not a social network. The developers state ‘to be clear, this is NOT intended to challenge Instagram. VSCO Grid is built for a different purpose with different goals.
VSCO Grid will initially be limited to a small but growing group of creators as new concepts and features are tested. The developers go on to say ‘we aren’t trying to build fake ‘hype’ or be elitist. Simply put, we must scale VSCO Grid properly for long term sustainability. If you are interested in creating a Grid, you will be able to let the developers know within the new VSCO Cam.
Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said.
Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London.
Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art.
Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both. Please contact her at: email@example.com
I am still waiting for the activation code. Anyone got it already?
I’m waiting too – no activation code yet! Looks very interesting though and I’m looking forward to it.
Looks interesting. You can buy the whole lot of in cam purchases at the intro price of 6 US dollars, normally $16.
Will play around with it today.
Thanks Joanne and VSCO!
Made the app free so we could pay a fortune for filters? The f2p method is deceiving. Also little functionality for anyone other than a iPhone 5 user. Quite a bummer, i’ll be going back to Afterglow (you can turn down the intensity of those FREE filters too…)
Decided to order all the filters on the $5.99 special and forsake a triple tall latte, so I’m even.
New VSCO and Mextures I’m going crazy over here!!!!!
Hey, I haven’t received the activation code yet, is that normal? I’ve waited for almost one day. I want it now!! haha
