    First, the good: new icons are much better than the old ones (except for saturation, IMO) the library section I like, more streamlined, flatter design, easier navigation to edit, etc. Collected images is a nice addition, one feature I would love is if you could copy edits from them. But thats nitpicking.

    And the bad: The social section still isn't all that useable to me. No feedback, liking, etc. Finding new users is close to impossible. and navigating out of users pages is clunky. When you click on a user, the only way to get back is to press the down arrow at the top left of the page. Which is fine, but if they added the circle nav, why not add the functionality to close a user page from it?

    The whole app is clunky, stuttery and a little slow at times. I personally don't use the camera in VSCO, or the social section (because of previously mentioned flaws) So the better icons in the edit section are the main reason I am excited. Overall its a better design but it could use some work. Hopefully they will iron out some things in the near future.
