    I will say that it takes FOREVER for the albums to populate. The one good thing though is that once they are populated, that they are "cached" and available for instant access after that!

  8. Though, there's no Flickr or Facebook integration, right? Picasa is nice though.

    That is a false statement(for me anyway). When I hit "share", I see all of the choices that I have in my stock gallery. It may take awhile to get it all synced up.

    Why does this gallery app need soooo many permissions?
    Storage I understand
    System Tools I understand
    but Network communication? 'Fine' GPS location? Full internet access?

    Sorry for coming off paranoid, but are we sure that this is a direct rip of the regular app and doesn't have anything extra thrown in?
     
  11. Well for one, I wasn't making a statement. Very odd way of you to respond. Two, the HTC Gallery allows you to browse both Facebook and Flickr albums as if they were already on the phone. I used 3D gallery before and didn't see this.

    Sharing is universal as I wasn't speaking of it.

    Look pretty? Haha I just know a LOT of people were yearning for "pinch to peek" and the 3D gallery, it's a really cool interface, but I think that's the only bonus. That and the fact that the stock gallery seems to need to repopulate every time I open it.

    Didn't even pay attention to that, but a good question. I would say internet access for sharing, and possibly location for geo tagging??

    Yea, I think I will too. Having to wait for the pictures to repopulate and waiting a few moments isnt cool.

    The FPS seems to drop when dragging to find a picture you want to look at.

    And it constantly twitches when is adjust my holding angles and such.

    Also when sliding across in full pictures the thumbnail before the full picture loads is awfully blurry.

    You have a "no" in there followed by "right"??? I was just trying to make it clear as to what I was trying to say without mixing up a bunch of negatives with positives and double negatives which equals a positive....that is all. I wasn't trying to be an asshole or anything. Sorry bout that. And yes, I now understand the intent of your question...I obviously didn't before. But "sharing" would be considered "integration". Maybe I should have repsonded, "No, yes there is.". Would you have understood that?
     
  17. I don't mean to turn this into a grammar lesson, but with the comma I was then using 'right' as representation of reinforcing the original idea.

    Once all of your albums populate, then these anomalies go away. And the albums remain populated so they don't have to re-populate next time you select the gallery. Give it a chance(or don't). It took quite a while for all of my albums to populate but once they did, it does work much more smoothly. I think one of the bad things about Froyo is that the stock gallery does in fact have to repopulate every time you select it. This was not the case on 2.1 and another thing that annoys me about 2.2.

    What do you gain with this gallery....not much. It is just a different presentation of your photos...that is all. And pinch to peek is kinda cool but I think actually selecting the album provides a better "peek" of what is in the album.

    Call me old fashioned but I guess I choose functionality of the old over the beauty of the new.

    :/

    I'm definitely sticking with 3D gallery, for me personally, it behaves much faster than the stock gallery app, plus it looks cool!

    I actually started that thread on XDA where's my thanks. awww Aldo goes to the corner with baby. I like the 3D gallery but the one i posted and that guy did the only difference i see is you can spread the pics which to me has no purpose.

    Not bad ... I do like the fact that you can check multiples easily. Sadly, I somehow managed to delete an entire album this way (I could've sworn I only checked about 6 photos), and I'm not sure how. I've got my SD card backed up, but still, be careful!
