The VSCO Cam mobile app is usable on iOS and Android devices, and allows users to capture photos in the app and edit them for fade, clarity, skin tone, tint, sharpen, saturation, contrast, temperature, etc., in part through the use of filters developed by the company. Users can publish their photography through a journal for the public to see. As of 2015, more than 72 million Instagram posts are captioned with the hashtag #vscocam. While the app itself is gratis, VSCO provides a "VSCO X Membership", which includes over 100 presets, Film X presets and tools, and new monthly additions. These upgrades interact with warmth and character tools that give models the effect of exposure and scanning to analog film.

There have also been many organizations dedicated to increasing the awareness of autism and the effects that autism has on someone's life. These organizations include Autism Speaks, Autism National Committee, Autism Society of America, and many others.
