Where's the cool 3d photo gallery?

    I thought that cool 3d photo gallery app was part of 2.1/HTC? I've seen videos of it and it looks very cool, but cannot find it on my phone or in the market...

    From what I understand you need to either disable sense or just the album part of sense, though I'm not sure if you can do just the sense album. Either way though, I understand it to be a sense issue.

    I wasn't aware that the Hero's 2.1 was receiving that. Sounds more like an app for a snapdragon.

    It is loaded on the most recent Damageless ROM (2.08.2) and it works very well on the Hero. So I guess it did not make the final release.

    That is one of the reasons I am holding off putting this final release on my Hero. (Plus, the voice to text is amazing!)

    I agree with Zomdroid, I have it on me Hero running DC's latest 2. 1 and its very cool.
    The voice to text is totally amazing too. That is the coolest app on the phone.

    How do I get the voice to text app? I uploaded to Sprint's 2.1.

    I guess Sprint decided not to add it to their Rom. It's on the Damage Control Rom.

    Does not work on the standard keyboard in Sprint's 2.1. But it DOES work on all the third party keyboards I have tried. Use it every day these last few days, and again, running non rooted Sprint 2.1.

    So please don't listen to folks who say you CAN'T have voice to text on the Sprint 2.1. That is just incorrect. You just need a third party keyboard. I use Better Keyboard. Just fits better for what I do.

    I really would try to disable Sense first and see if that brings it up. As far as I understand it, the 3d album is built into all 2.1 builds, Sense just takes over on our Hero's and doesn't allow it to run. In theory it should be there. I do not have 2.1 yet though so I can neither verify this or test it out for you.

    Actually, if you throw the XDA hacked HTC keyboard on it, you still get all the voice-text functions. The stock keyboard is simply missing the microphone button. The drivers are there.

    It's not in our 2.1 update....if you want it..you can push it yourself through ADB....


    put the Gallery3D.apk file in your TOOLS folder in the Android SDK folder..

    Was talking about the speech to text input. ;)

    I sort of have a problem with this "strategy". It could hurt Android in the future. When I buy Windows 7, I get what I've seen in the commercials and read about. I don't look for the feature and have people say "Oh, HP PC's don't have that feature." I mean, it is fine for vendors (Moto, HTC, etc) to supplement with their own apps, etc., but all core features should be universal in a version.

    I thought in 2.1 I was going to get Speech to Text and 3d photo gallery. I know there are ways to get these apparently with 3rd party or hacks, but that is beside the point.

    Can you revert back to the old style gallery after you install this 3D gallery?

    This should not replace htcs "photos" and instead simply add 3D gallery. If you don't want to use it, you can leave it, or delete it.

    That rapidshare link has expired. Could someone repost another link to download the apk?

    I'm on Cellular South's hero, and we just got the 2.1 update yesterday (not OTA; had to track down a PC to install it). One thing I was eager to get was the Picasa Gallery sync, but that's nowhere to be found.

    Anyone know what's going on with that? Is that the same thing y'all are talking about here?

    Yes this does have Picasa album pics...

    That's mildly helpful. Care to share how you've accessed it?

    Settings > Accounts and sync > Select "Google" account > check "Sync Picasa Web Albums"

    I know... I wouldn't have thought to look there either, I just stumbled upon that one day. Give it some time to sync, and if you cant see the ablums there you might have to reboot the phone. I also think there are diffrent versions of the 3D Gallery out there since mine doesnt have "pinch to zoom", so maybe some versions dont have the Picasa sync option? Im using the one that came with the rom though. (Fresh 2.3.3) Hope that was more helpful. :)

    Nope, not there for me. All I've got under the Google heading in the "Accounts and Sync" tab is Contacts, Gmail, and Calender.

    Oh, well. Maybe it's somewhere else in here...

    Hm... try finding a different version, I have seen them all over. Unless you really dont need that.

    I agree! Google is making a big mistake that is going to seriously hurt Android by letting it become fractured. Google should tell these handset mfgrs "you can use our OS only if you deliver it intact and unaltered." If HTC, Moto, etc. want to tweak things they should deliver their software as a UI layer ... then users would have the choice to enable/disable it but always have the core OS.

    At one point, Microsoft faced a similar problem ... all the PC makers wanted to "customize" DOS but MS put its foot down because such a situation would make it impossible to supply the end-user with patches. We HTC users are facing the same situation: we don't have Google Android phones ... we have HTC Sense phones, and as such we've got no guarantee that Android apps will run properly on our phones. Can you imagine what would have become of the DOS apps market if programmers had to write a version for every machine? MS saw the future of a splintered market ... will Google?
