When it comes to photo-editing apps on the iPhone, VSCO Cam has pretty much been the gold standard for the last few years. But to make the experience even better, the app is finally coming to the iPad.

VSCO 4.0 was released today with a redesigned look just for the iPad. Previously, iPhotogs could use the popular photo editor/social network on their iPads as a blown-up iPhone app, but the fresh design and new features will make you want to ditch your iPhone altogether. Take a look:

In addition to the new iPad optimization, VSCO also added the ability to sync your shooting and editing across multiple devices. Once you sign into your VSCO account on both devices, any edits you make on one picture will be visible on other devices, and with the new Edit History feature, you’ll be able to modify or undo any changes you made to your pics.

VSCO also expanded its reach as a social network with a new Journal feature that lets you publish long-form, photo-centric content to the VSCO Grid, similar to Exposure. They’ve also added a Preset Gallery so you can view side-by-side comparisons on your iPad.

Unfortunately, the landscape mode features didn’t make it into the iPhone version of 4.0, but the camera controls now have an advanced mode that lets you adjust exposure and white balance, as well as toggle dark mode.

The free update is available now on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. You can get it on Google Play too if you’re into that sort of thing.
