Seven alternative gallery apps to better manage your photos

For years, QuickPic was one of the first applications I would install on my phone, without even bothering to use the phone's default gallery app. It was small, fast, efficient, and free, but has sadly disappeared at the end of 2018. For a while, I've been trying to find a decent replacement, and some of the below apps are great candidates to become your next go-to gallery app.

Tired Of People Swiping Through Your Photos Without Permission? Check Out Focus

We've all dealt with it before: you hand someone your phone to show them a photo, and the jackass swipes forward and/or backward to look at your other photos. That's a huge no-no, but unfortunately there are still people out there who didn't get the memo (or are just too damn rude to care). Fortunately, there's a way to keep this scenario from happening ever again.

It's a simple app called Focus, and it basically puts other photos under a PIN code, so when someone tries to swipe left or right, they're greeted with this message:

`

There are two versions of Focus: an ad-supported, free variant; and a paid version that costs a dollar.

Exclusive: Press Images Of The White Nexus 4 (LG E960W) Leak Out

As we already know, the white Nexus 4 is very much real. Months after first showing up on the web, it re-appeared at Google I/O in all its glory, with June 10th tipped as a possible launch date by AndroidAndMe's co-founder Taylor Wimberly. Alongside it, according to Taylor, Android 4.3 would be unveiled as well.

While I can't confirm the date (even if the information was correct at the time of I/O, plans can change for any reason), what I can show you today are some of the press images of the white Nexus 4, model number E960W (the original Nexus 4 is E960).

'Messaging + Google Voice' (Mostly) Combines Android's Stock Texting App With GV Integration

Google Voice is a great service burdened by a lack of support, integration, and easy way to sign up (unless you're on Sprint, of course). Those who do decide to jump the hurdles and either get a brand new number—or port their existing one to Google—will find themselves in an uncomfortable paradise. On the one hand, you can text from your desktop, tablet, or phone completely for free which is awesome. On the other hand, you have to use the Google Voice app, which is not that great. 'Messaging + Google Voice', however aims to alleviate that problem a bit.

Pixlr Express Review – Autodesk Gets On-The-Go Photo Manipulation Right (Again)

When I first covered Pixlr Express a few days ago, I noted that the presence of a photo editing app was odd in Autodesk's lineup of powerful tools. Having developed apps like ForceEffect, 360 Mobile, and AutoCAD WS, you'd think Autodesk was marketing to power users who want to design, edit, animate, and engineer from the palm of their hand. Still, Autodesk's first foray into the mobile photo editing world – Pixlr-o-matic – was a hit. So much so, it appears, that Autodesk brought to market Pixlr Express.

Despite its name, the only thing "express" about Autodesk's new tool is the speed with which users can edit, manipulate, and overlay photos using a wide library of tools (when I say "wide," I refer to its selection of 600+ effects).

This May Or May Not Be A Photo Of Sony's Unannounced 5-Inch C650X 'Odin' Handset

A couple of weeks ago, Xperia blog posted what appeared to be User-Agent Profile information revealing the existence of Sony's purported upcoming flagship, the C650X codenamed Odin.

The information seemed to point toward an Xperia device running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, with separate rumors suggesting a 5" display at 1080x1920 resolution (441ppi), a Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM.

Today, a photo has surfaced that, according to Concept-Phones, depicts the yet-unseen Odin. As with any other photo-based rumor, we had to take a closer look.

[Update: Probably Fake] Alleged Photo Of The Galaxy Note 2 Surfaces, Appears To Match Previously Leaked Digitizer

Update: Looks like this may be another fake thrown into the game. A nearly-identical mockup was posted on Twitter not long ago, so this could just be another elaborate hoax.

Mockup (by Twitter user Daniel UY):

1

We've been hearing rumors of the Galaxy Note 2 for several weeks now, and a pretty believable image of the device has now made its way onto the net ahead of Samsung's August 29th event where we fully expect the device to be announced.

What makes this picture all the more believable is the fact that a previously leaked image of the purported Note 2 digitizer perfectly matches up with what we're seeing today.

Wi-Fi Shoot (Beta) Lets Users Share Photos And Videos Via Wi-Fi Direct

As of right now, very few Android devices support Wi-Fi Direct sharing, which was first implemented as part of Android 4.0. The protocol requires Ice Cream Sandwich, which is still only on 16% of Android devices. Beyond that, the device needs some software to take advantage of the new API. Some devices (like the Galaxy S III) include built-in support, but for others that either haven't included support in the OS—or that do, but don't work very well, like my own E4GT—you'll need some kind of app to take advantage of it. Luckily, we happen to have some kind of app right here!

Nexus 7 Shows Its Face Ahead Of Today's Announcement

We've been hearing about the mysterious "Google tablet" for months now and, more recently, have seen quite a bit of supporting evidence that it will be called the Nexus 7. We've even seen the back and sides of the device. What we haven't seen, however, is the interface.

Until now.

1

What you're looking at there is an official image of the Nexus 7, directly from Google's Play Store servers. While it's nice to finally put a face to the name, this image raises some questions, like why does it have a phone interface? Surely Google wouldn't forsake its own tablet-optimized UI...
