    Issue: 2.2 Froyo Update doesn't have new Camera interface or 3D Gallery


    To Everybody!

    I FINALLY got the notification for the 2.2 Froyo update for my HTC Desire on the Three network just yesterday. So far so good, installed and it seems to be running faster (or at least the 'placebo effect' from seeing it upgrade has yet to wear off).

    However, I had read that the camera interface had been changed and that the 3D gallery would be available. I have definitely got new features on the camera (e.g. more rotation, light for camcorder, 720p recording), but there is no change to the interface other than the little gallery icon fully rotating. Also, I do not have the 3D gallery.

    Does anyone know why this is? Was it not included in the Three Froyo update?!

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    HTC did not update the camera interface during Froyo... just added the 720p possibility.
    The only "update" is actually the camera icons that follow the screen orientation.
    If you want to have the 3d gallery, search for the apk and install.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I had watched numerous videos on YouTube and reading various other websites, and they all show that the camera interface has been improved.

    Android 2.2 Platform Highlights | Android Developers

    The site above says that the camera UI has been changed. I have even noticed other difference as shown in the menu and the three buttons at the bottom of the home screen, like this guy's Desire at about 1 min and 45 secs...

    Unless of course there are other apks that I have missed entirely? In pretty much all articles I had read it said that these changes would be implemented, but they had not been when I looked at my phone after the upgrade.

    Hmmm...

    (Arrr... he uses ADW, for some of those features. Arrr... bit not for the Camera UI.)

    Okay, so it isn't a biggy in all. I don't even care about the 3D Gallery, I was curious as to why some of the features were not on the phone, when articles and videos had shown otherwise.
