There once was an app called Flayvr, and it did okay. Then one day, the developers decided it should work differently, so they gave it a new name and design, and it magically became MyRoll. And they all lived happily ever after. The End. Oh, but the app is available in the Play Store, and it does stuff.

What sort of stuff does it do? It's a gallery replacement that bills itself as the first "full frame" gallery. That means it doesn't smush all your photos down into square previews, but shows the entire frame, even if it's a panorama or vertical shot. MyRoll also intelligently organizes images that it thinks are better. It's one of those machine learning things that will probably lead to Skynet killing all of us.

Sharing is another big part of MyRoll – the developers claim it's easier to share multiple photos to your various social networks with its smart organization features. The app is free and should scale correctly to phones and tablets, so feel free to install it on all your things.

    Whenever I see something like this I'm like wow...people have much more beautiful and exciting lives than I do. if I were to get this app it would be a collage of pictures ranging from that mole I found on my back, to tomato from my garden destroyed by pests I planned to post on a gardening forum.

    Here it is BTW... (The tomatoes not the mole)

      Don't feel bad, that mole is real, and tomatoes are also... Those gallery things are the most stock, fake, boring "moments" you'll ever see in your life! Sure, we don't have the WONDERFUL CAMERA and factory made moments, but we ha real, still fun lifes we don't always have the time to photograph xD

    Very good!

    Why does it UI look so similar to Google+ Photos?

    • ddpacino

      Is that a problem for you?

    • HOLOYOLO but Material Design

      Because it's a scrolling list of photos would be my guess. Also, HOLO.

    When I read the app name "MyRoll", why do I think of toilet paper?

  • Deeco

    Just wished there was a better Photo/ Gallery app for Android.

    • someone755

      This one right here? QuickPic? Some port of another OEM's gallery?
      You name it, Android has a whole bunch of Photo/Gallery apps, you just need to find them.

      • Deeco

        I meant dedicated.

    is it better than quickpic?

  • Jaromir KM Bracki

    Never heard of Flayvr before, but I think that the former name was way cooler than MyRoll. Let's see how MyRoll will roll.

  • _artem_

    quick pic is da best. no need for this one
