Default "Nexus" Gallery on Droid..."flan gallery"

Flan gallery application now available for Android 2.0!:

Sorry if this is a repost...didn't see it anywhere here. Would suck for my 1st post to be a FAIL.

Anyhow, saw this the other day and downloaded and installed the Flan Gallery on my Droid. Seems to be tons better than the stock gallery both in form and function.

The gallery takes a bit to load...I guess because it loads from the SD card initially? It has "crashed" a few times for me, but all it does is go back to the gallery menu page and doesn't FC or anything.

One really cool thing I noticed is that it will sort your photos by the location in which they were taken.

You did see that the article you posted was from January 2nd right?

The file has been floating around here for over a month.

But anyways, welcome to Android Forums!

Do a search next time!

actually I did get it to install however iIhave one question: I don't think the "quasi" 3d effect is functioning properly. Is it supposed to give me an angular while scrolling through my pics? because it only does the angular 3d effect if iItry to scroll further once ive reached the end....if that makes sense...

You're referring to the 'tilt' ?

Just use the accelerometer.

Uhh yes, there is a workaround. Download apk taking note where it is downloaded to. Email apak to yourself, and using browser not email app go to your email and open apk. Once downloaded open from notification bar and it will be second gallery in app list. Hope this helps!

A wha...? Sounds like a really convoluted way to install an apk file.

Everyone should have a file manager installed on their Droids.

I recommend Astro. Then all you have to do is navigate to your 'downloads' folder and click on the apk. Provided you have the setting checked that allows you to install non-market apps, it'll install.

ya I installed it successfully using astro. but now I have a new question

Id like to take full advantage of this app, I saw this comment on the youtube video previewing it

"The video misses one of the most interesting features of the flan gallery -- after installing, the phone's "Accounts and sync" settings includes a Picasa line (i.e., Mail, Contacts, PICASA, and Calendar). When enabled, all of your Picasa albums show up in the gallery and you can scrol through them just like they were local pictures"

now i don't currently have a picasa account but I know for sure when I go to accounts and sync on my phone there is no option to add a picasa account....would anyone like to elaborate on what this guy/gal was talking about

Yeah, pretty sure this won't work unless you have a cooked ROM with this preinstalled.

Last I heard, it requires a factory wipe to enable, but seeing as how you installed it with an .apk, it's on your /data partition and not the /system.

You'll just have to wait for 2.1 for that!

Heard of that bug. Did you enter the gallery through the camera app? That's the only time I know when the pics won't fully render.

It should fully render after a second or two if you enter directly from the Gallery app.

The only problem I experienced is that when I tried to apply a wallpaper, it would just copy the image. So I would have the same wallpaper but two copies of the one I wanted.

Ummmm you can just go to the site itself on your phone and directly install it that way... no need for a PC at all or a file manager.... just click download and then click it again once it is finished and it will install...

Is there a way to put the videos in a separate folder in the Flan Gallery? It's so hard for me to find my videos because they're buried in my bazillion pictures.
