Having rooted my phone and switched over to other roms on my HTC Desire (I’m currently rocking the latest stable rom by Cyanogen, it’s rather nice) I’ve had to rely on the standard Android gallery app as my default photo browser. As much as I liked the flashy interface I was always annoyed by how long it would take to load. Even worse was the fact that it would display EVERY single folder on my phone that would happen to have a jpeg stored inside. Actually getting to the photos I wanted to view was a chore.
In the end I decided to dump it and search for something that was less concerned about being flash and more focused on simply being quicker to use. I found QuickPic and it does the job nicely.
Simplicity is the keyword in QuickPic. You’re given a choice of two ‘easy-on-the-eye’ gallery views and from here everything is clearly laid out. Picture folders load up quickly, flicking through photos is swift and painless and yet there are still all the options (delete, rotate, share, zoom etc) that the standard Android gallery app offers. One of the best features is the ability to select an unwanted folder and instruct QuickPic to ignore it giving you full control on what photo folders will appear within the app.
You’re not limited to photos either, you can also browse your videos and have them played back in the video app of your choice.
That’s pretty much all there is to QuickPic but then again that’s what makes it so good. There’s
minimal faffing about, it just gets you straight to where you want to go.
