    "Do you want to be able to label yourself as a photographer and editor by just screwing around on your phone? VSCO is your solution. Whether you're a vapid attention seeker who only gets by on their looks or you're just super lazy and want to be popular on instagram by barely doing anything try VSCO. It will give you the confidence to say on your bio that yes, I am a photographer and yes, I am an editor."

    "I needed an app that would allow me to easily remove unwanted content from my photos. This app makes that job so easy and quite fun in the process. Sometimes when taking a picture on my phone I can't see everything in the shot until later when I'm looking at the photo. If I notice something like a person that crept into the photo right as I was snapping then I can remove that person with ease using this app. Highly recommended! This has to be one of the best photo apps around in my opinion!"

    "I'm a photographer and love playing with various photography apps on my iPhone. I found AfterFocus, which is a cool app that lets you blur the background. Since most smartphone cameras can not do this very well compared to traditional DSLR lenses that have a wide aperture (for example, the 50mm f/1.8 lens from Canon), this app will blur the background for you. It works surprisingly well! I really love it and really suggest this app for anyone that needs some background blurring of their sharp-background photos."
