New interface and cloud service integration highlight beta release
It's no secret that the stock Gallery app from AOSP is rather simple, but effective. CyanogenMod thinks it can offer something better, though, and has just announced an app to replace it called GalleryNext. While the app isn't complete, it does offer integration with Flickr, Google+, Facebook and Dropbox for photos, as well as automatic album grouping.
It of course supports videos, gifs, deduping and all of the features you'd expect from a more advanced gallery app you'd download as a replacement for the stock version. On the "todo" list currently is implementing KitKat's immersive mode, photo editing and some polish around all of the features.
GalleryNext is available starting today through the Play Store's beta testing system, and will presumably ship as the default gallery app in future versions of CM. If you're interested in becoming a tester, head to the source link below and follow the simple instructions.
