    Welcome new update!

    When things get done in a new and different way people tend to complain. We seem to be scared of changes. But later when we look back we say “How could we live with that??“. Just think about the old iOS skeuomorphic design.

    So, welcome new update. And congratulations to the VSCO team for having the courage to innovate and trying new things.

      Yes, there is a natural instinct to resist change to some degree, but if you look at most, it not all of the criticism thus far (including mine) - it has to do a lot more with degraded usability than personal aesthetic preferences.

        I don't disagree with your criticism. Constructive criticism would be preferred in general, as it is easier to criticize something than to come up with a better solution.

        What I want to say is, change is the more difficult and risky path, but at the end of that path lies the reward.

        My support goes to the team for making that choice.

          I totally get where you are coming from. Again, I'm a fanboy of them and even use their Lightroom presets. It's key to remember, the difficult and risky path is not always the BEST path.

          I'm sure it will be refined and I'm sure in the end the app will rock as always.

          Out of curiosity, do you use the app? As someone who uses it almost daily, this version is pretty hard to work through.

          One thing I really like now though is the new "summary" of filters and adjustments you made to a photo before "saving". Love that.
