    Hi, I'm currently trying to use quickpic as default viewer. I managed to make it default in Astro but not in my camera app, which is annoying. I tried to change it via app manager but didn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Currently using default camera app.

    If you email yourself a pic and open it on your phone will it ask you to choose what app you want to use to view it? If it does you should be able to set quickpic as the default photo viewer that way

    Well I can set it to default by opening a picture in Astro file manager but in camera mode, it brings me to the default htc gallery, wouldn't it be the same thing?

    I'm not sure I'm trying to think how I ended up setting quickpic as my default for all picture viewing but it was so long ago I can't remember.

    You know what I'm sorry I forgot I switched to the vignette camera app and haven't been using the stock htc app for over a month now. When I switch back to the htc camera it does go to the stock gallery when you tap the bottom left icon. Sorry about that. I can't keep track of all the apps I use/try

    I like it better than the stock one, has a lot more features/effects also a plus for me was being able to set the volume rocker as the take picture button.
