The Rise and Rise of VSCO Photo & Video Editor App – $3m Net Sales in June 2019

The VSCO Photo & Video app shows no sign of diminishing sales revenue for its founders. Last month alone, June 2019, it achieved $3m net worth of sales with 2m downloads. For a free app, you may well wonder how this is possible. It’s free, yes, but the in-app subscription of $19.99/£18.49 for the annual membership is where they generate their income.

The VSCO membership model on mobile allows access to VSCO’s complete preset library, including 170+ presets. You can recreate vintage film looks by Kodak, Fuji, Agfa, and others with Film X. Use advanced editing tools like HSL, Borders, and Video Editing. Explore tips, tricks, and tutorials tailored for members in Discover. Finally, you can share your work for a chance to be curated by VSCO.

It’s possible to trial membership with a 7 day free trial, after which, if not cancelled, you will be charged the annual subscription fee of $19.99/£18.49.

VSCO Photo & Video app requires iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Apple TV.

A few weeks ago we removed all traces of our dilly dally with advertising. The adverts were intrusive and spoilt your enjoyment of TheAppWhisperer.com, you told us. We were happy to do this but of course the revenue did help to support our not for profit site. Therefore, please consider offering a contribution or supporting us with a regular monthly donation of your choosing, so that we can continue to bring you this high quality level of specialist journalism, day in and day out. Please reward our passion, as we reward yours…we would not ask if it was not important.


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.
