Gallery misbehaving?

    So, I have downloaded watchdog because my phone would all of a sudden get really hot and the battery would drain rapidly.

    After having it for a few days, the only app that I get mis-behaving is the gallery app. It frequently hits 50%. So I kill it every time, but I'm wondering if anyone else with this phone is having the same problem?? Its the stock picture viewing program that came on the phone.

    Any ideas on why it keeps mis-behaving? Is there a way to just kill it permanently without rooting the phone? Or a different app that works better than this Samsung gallery app??

    Thanks for any and all information.

    Is this issue addressed in Icecream Sandwich?

    Is there a way to kill gallery permanently?

    Can you not clear data/cache? Effectively forcing it to re launch from scratch and see what happens. If not a more drastic step would be to factory reset. What you're experiencing isn't normal!

    I just installed ICS and I love it. However, the gallery app has misbehaved after this, so there is something wrong. I will clear the cache and see what happens. Factory reset would not be an option.

    Im on Version 1.1.30682

    EDIT: Cache is already at zero. No option to clear cache. But there is a disable button. Thoughts on disabling it?

    I understand you probably want to use gallery but quixotic is a fantastic app, cannot recommend it enough!

    I just searched the market (or google play as they call it now :rolleyes:) for quixotic and no results. Can you elaborate where to get it and how much it costs?
