    I've never been a fan of the AOSP Gallery app and have tried many things to replace that app. I recently found a very nice gallery app, entitled QuickPic, that can be used as a drop-in replacement for the AOSP Gallery.

    Features:
    * QuickPic can be set as the default app for gallery activites.
    * Show albums as a list or a group
    * Multi-select images in an album
    * Pinch to zoom images
    * Share individual images
    * Delete individual images
    * Rotate individual images
    * Crop individual images
    * Set individual images as Contact Icon or Wallpaper
    * Rename individual images
    * Image details
    * Launch camera app

    Market Description:
    This is the best picture viewer/gallery/photo album you are looking for and you can replace the stock gallery!

    Speed browsing tons of pictures without background service!
    Clear thumbnail previews, include or exclude the specified folders! Easy to hide your privacy photos!
    Greater resolution, better image quality of full-screen photo view!
    iPhone' smooth experience: sliding shift or switch, single/double tap or pinch to zoom!
    Rich image editing and management features: rotate, crop/shrink, share, set wallpaper, slides, sort, rename, move/copy!
    It is free and no ads!
    If you find any BUG, email me! One For All, All For One!!!

    Tips:
    Please BACKUP YOUR IMPORTANT PHOTOS before your do file operations!
    Long press a thumbnail to move/copy to another or new folder.
    Click the title in the title bar to rename the file/folder.
    Animated-GIF is in testing, because it is not well supported by Android!
    Not support Picasa or Facebook or other web album!
    Not support 3D photos yet!
    App2SD will be available when the APK size >= 500K!

    Heh, from the title of this thread i thought you were looking for a replacement gallery app... so came here specifically to suggest quickpic. :D

    Quickpic is indeed fantastic. Started using it on my hero since its feeble CPU really struggled with the laggy bloated stock gallery. Have carried on using it ever since.

    Yes, QuickPic is great :)

    I have noticed that the stock viewer on my Sensation looks like a QuickPic version several version steps back ;)

    So if you want to know how the viewer of the next HTC phone will look like, look at QuickPic.

    I prefer the stock gallery on my DX for viewing photos, it's the only one that allows you to rotate the pics with a turn of your fingers instead of having to use the menu.
