    Hey Alex,

    I see this is your second comment. Hopefully my first comment gave you some insight into what we are going to be doing with VSCO Studio on web (desktop). Your thoughts and ideas are absolutely welcome!

It's a common misconception that a browser / web app is clunky. Great technological strides have been made over the years with web applications such that they perform at the same level and in some cases better than native apps.
