    Just went on market and saw multi-touch gallery for droid. It makes the native gallery have multi-touch no need to open another program!! Adds pinch zoom and swipe next photo.

    Go check it out

    Hmm, why is the app listed twice? :/

    just tried both, and they don't work as advertised. they don't alter the native app, they provide a replacement. still useful tho.

    I got this yesterday, integrates seamlessly with the phone, and works well.

    If you're pinching to zoom and try to go back the other way, it rarely works. I pretty much have to take my fingers off the phone and then change directions. Other than that, it's very nice.

    thanks for the heads up. Swipe to change photos is nice, also.

    not bad. the pinch and zooming needs a lil work but works good overall.

    Doesn't intergrate with the native app, it adds another app. Not sure what the OP is seeing, but I have two apps now.

    Pinch zoom is overly sensitive, needs to be toned down a bit. Otherwise, good effort.

    while im happy with something like this, was the stovk app actually that bad? Seemed to perform all its functions pretty well. Its not like you couldnt just tap an arrow to go to the next photo or zoom in with a tap of the screen

    One is the version for the Droid. The other is for the older devices.

    Not on my phone. You have to use the second app to do the multi touch stuff. Kinda lame.

    Use some caution...I installed the Droid version and it may have hosed my phone. I've been unable to launch any app after installing it - tapping any icon had no response. Rebooted the phone twice. After second reboot, was able to launch the phone app, exited it after looking at call log an am now staring at a blank screen for about a minute, then returned to home screen. Gmail wouldn't open. Email would open, but when pressed back same issue - goes to blank screen for 30 or more seconds and then back to home page.

    Majority of apps won't run...bizarre - I may have to do a reset.

    Don't reset just boot in safe mode by holding down hole spa button while booting up.

    Can't recover...uninstalled Gallery and Weather Channel also just in case (only other app I installed today - about four hours earlier).

    Majority of apps won't open, when I exit ones that will run go to a blank screen for ~30s, then finally back to the home page.

    Just did a reset ... <sigh>

    Can't prove that this app did this, but my problems started immediately after install. Unknown if this app was conflicting with other apps on already on my system.

    this app is a good start. hopefully google will add multitouch and better implement it. uninstalled as i'm not sure why internet access is required. i'm starting to get worried about why all these third party apps need so much access to my phone's capabilities.

    Hold down what button while booting up? "spa?"

    What does booting to safe mode allow me to do?
  21. Redflea

    OK - this is either well beyond a problem w/the Gallery program, or it has really hosed my phone.

    I uninstalled it and Weather Channel, reset the phone and am having the same problem again...apps won't run when I tap on them. I can't even get into settings right now...

    Never seen or heard of anything like this...

    Booted safe mode, didn't really help... :(

    Installed it last night and uninstalled it 2 minutes later. Pinch to zoom "works" sort of. It will zoom albeit with some lag but it is rather difficult to zoom out without having to lift your fingers off the screen and retrying. Pinch to zoom in picsay is 100x better than this implementation.

    Thx for the find!! I was using astro quite a bit(odd i know) just because i liked the swiping through gallery...ppl love to look at the phone still and they always want to swipe through pictures naturally, it just seems more natural w/ the phones sexyness..lol Thanks!

    i think it works pretty good!

    i am in the same boat.... nice but i can live without it till it implemented into the normal gallery without net access.

    i know some people are able to see what programs are caling out to as far as net access.. i havn't dove that far in yet, but maybe someone who has can tell us what if anything they are using net access for?

    I have notice that when I scroll through the thumbnails it won't go fast enough to expose any white boxes.
