CyanogenMod Inc. is always finding ways to bring new features that enhances the way consumers interact with their devices. A recent post on its Google+ page announces the new image gallery app called the GalleryNext. It is still in its beta stage right now (so expect a few bugs) and is available for testing via the CyanogenMod Google+ community.
GalleryNext displays photos vertically and in chronological order. There’s also a side menu available that allows switching of view from Moments (based on the day the picture was taken) or Albums (folder view).
The new app also comes with integrated support for Flickr, Picasa, Facebook and Dropbox making photos easy to share between these services. CM plans to change the interface to match that of Android KitKat in the future.
The features of the app include
- 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
Since the app is still in beta some of the things that are planned to be worked on are
- Implement KitKat’s immersive mode UI
- Editor support
- Fix all the things
