Carry your hand if you’re partial to the inventory AOSP Gallery software? A few you? None of you? Lots of you? That is a kind of functions we hardly ever discuss for no matter purpose, however for those who inquire from me, I’d argue that it is likely one of the ultimate ultimate overlooked apps that also appears to be placing on to visions of years prior. Fortunately for us and the app itself, it’s on the verge of being phased out for the Google+ Photographs app, so we’ll possible by no means see it get a 2014 stamp of Google design approval.
The CyanogenMod team seems to agree and has created their own new gallery app called GalleryNext. For now, it’s in beta and available for testing, but we would imagine that in the future, it will ship with CM builds.
The app looks somewhat like a blacked-out version of the G+ Photos app with its slideout navigation menu and mini-gallery compilations. What makes it unique and extra useful, is the cloud service integration that has been built in for your photos on Flickr, Picasa, Facebook, and Dropbox. You’ll also find GIF support, video playback support, and “Moments” support (grouping of photos based on metadata).
As you can imagine with the app in beta, there are things that need to be done to improve it. The CM team already has a list in the works, but should you become a part of the beta test, be sure to submit issues and requests as they come up.
Here are the features:
- View all your pictures in one centralized location
- Cloud services integration with Flickr, Picasa (G+), Facebook, and Dropbox
- Moments support (automatic grouping and classification of media based on metadata)
- Video playback support
- Gif support
- Deduplication in ‘All’ view
And the upcoming to-do list:
- Implement KitKat’s immersive mode UI
- Editor support
- Fix all the things
