The developer focuses on crystal clear photo viewing, as well as wide device compatibility. QuickPic is free and works on any Android device running Android 2.0 and up, so everyone should be able to at least give the app a spin to see if it works for them.
The features of Fish Bowl are great, and it’s tough to find a gallery app that does more. Say you took tons of photos on the 4th of July, then just sporadically took a few photos up until Labor Day, when you took a ton of photos again. You can rename flayvrs, add or remove photos from them, or share them through text messages or any of the major social networks (Google+, Facebook, Twitter). Gallery ICS is the stock Android gallery application that’s included on vanilla Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich.
Gallery ICS doesn’t have too many features, but it does have an excellent interface and stability.

Okay, so what we need is an all in one fast camera, a way to organize them within this camera app without going back and forth between camera and gallery to preview one pic, then reloading the camera for a second pic (SO SLOW), and then a way to edit them without “SHARING” to a third party app, then later having to remember where the phone filed the edited picture (which app did I use? I want a photo viewer that will only display photos in a folder or folders I set for it and nothing else.
Quickpic lets you ignore folders and subfolders, don’t know what other image browsers have a similar feature. I use the CloudVault app to upload automatically the pictures from my Camera into my Google Drive.
MobileMe Gallery, provides real improvements over accessing the gallery via Safari browser.
The MobileMe Gallery app automatically stores viewed photos so that viewer can quickly access them again, even without a network connection.

A Greasemonkey script that adds Flickriver links to various Flickr photo pages - user photos, favorites, pools etc, allowing to quickly open the corresponding Flickriver view.
While viewing any Flickr photos page, click on the bookmarklet to open the same view on Flickriver. It has a nearly perfect 4.7 star rating from 166,000 users, which is impressive however you slice it.
It uses a custom decoder for viewing pictures, which boasts better quality viewing of your photos compared to other apps, and thanks to how lightweight and efficient the app is, it can easily browse even the largest photo collections without slowing down. There are several options for viewing your photos, including the standard gallery view, a grid view, a list view, and a file explorer for finding specific files. It has all of your standard photo viewing features, such as different ways to view pictures and albums and the ability to move and organize your galleries, but it goes above and beyond in the organization category. Flayvr would organize the photos from both of those holidays into an album, and the other photos would be grouped into thumbnails between the two. There’s not much you can do in the way of editing or managing files, but if you need something to flash up your albums just to show off or share with your friends, flayvr is excellent. It’s available in the Play Store as a free download, and if you want to get that stock Android look, this is likely your best option.
It runs extremely well, is compatible with any newer Android devices, and it comes with all of the traditional photo editing and managing options that are native to Android. If you’re one of the many people moving most of their files to cloud storage, it makes sense. Google+ also automatically enhances your photos for you, which in most cases actually makes your pictures look a little better with 0ut effort on your part. If you share most of your pictures to other social networks like Instagram or Twitter, it’s a bit of a hassle to manually download those pictures then upload them through another app. The Android enthusiasm started with the original Motorola Droid and an unhealthy obsession with fixing things that aren't broken. I’m sick and tired of having images for my music albums being retrieved every time I back out.
You may have to rename it in the tablet as Windows doesn’t like extension only names. However, Id like to: firstly organize ALL the relevant pictures (including some Whatsapp or facebook ones) and then upload them to the Google Drive cloud. Now users can easy view or watch their friend’s gallery photos and videos, and also includes a neat scrolling marquee of pictures.
Once added to your personalized homepage, just edit widget settings to select your desired view. Sure, you could use the built-in gallery app on your phone, but there are plenty of excellent alternatives in the Play Store that give you more flexibility over organizing and viewing your pictures.
It’s a very simple gallery replacement that focuses on speed and stability, but throws in a handful of extra features to stay competitive with other apps available. It also supports just about all major photo file types (excluding TIFF files) and most standard video files, as well as GIFs. It can also be set up to include only certain folders and exclude others, as well as hiding and password protecting other photos.
It’s designed to make sending a picture via MMS or email much quicker, and keeps you from running into MMS message limits or waiting around while a 13 megapixel photo uploads to an email.
Parts of it feel very cobbled together, and the whole thing feels pretty dated compared to newer apps that adhere to Holo guidelines.
If you don’t generally take many photos at holidays or events, it may not do you much good, but if you are the type of person that likes to photograph major events, it can help you keep your bigger albums collected outside of all of the other miscellaneous photos on your phone. You get a few different filters to apply to your photos, the ability to delete and rename photos, and quick access to Android’s built-in share context menu.
You also get nearly instant access to sharing any of these photos onto Google+, and you’re free to download any of your photos onto your device for local storage. There’s also limited support for folders outside of your camera folder, unless you turn the auto-backup feature on and manage everything else on your phone through Google+ servers. This accidentally led to being the go-to guy for anything more complicated than a toaster, which he considers more of a curse than a blessing. I even tried deleting my Google plus account but is still replacing pics i don’t want.
Navigating those pictures is buttery smooth and has most functions than a stock browser would have, such as double-tapping to zoom and pinch to zoom, and it even comes with some basic photo editing tools, like cropping, rotating, and setting wallpapers.
Throw in a fully optimized tablet interface and you’ve got a very well-rounded, easy-to-use gallery app. If you have lots of work pictures that you regularly need to pull up to show others, you could pin that album to the top of your galleries to cut down on the time it takes to look for what you need. You can also add notes to individual photos or even entire albums, similar to some of the gallery features Samsung has implemented into their TouchWiz gallery recently. Any files that aren’t grouped into a flayvr are displayed as smaller thumbnails between the larger albums based on the date they were taken. It’s definitely worth checking out to see if it complements your default gallery app. There are a few small drawbacks (being unable to see any local folders aside from your camera folder, for instance) but the other features make this social network a compelling gallery alternative.
It can even handle all of your recorded videos on the cloud, which is a very handy feature.
Jared is enrolled in online classes at the University of Phoenix, and spends his spare time on video games and listening to music.
The app also allows you to set different pictures as the cover photo of all of your albums, which is a nice touch for customization.
The app itself is free, but Photo Guard, the app that adds in a few extra features, costs just $1.99.
Personally, I think the pros outweigh the cons here, and this is my personal favorite solution. There are also options for hiding photos and albums as well as a deletion guard to prevent you from accidentally trashing any pictures. Most newer phones come preloaded with Google+ anyway, so you wouldn’t be going too far out of your way to give this one a shot.
