Motorola Gallery

A new light theme and slight design tweak from the original app

Motorola's take on the Gallery app is now joining a long list of apps moving out to the Play Store for easy updating. At the same time, Moto is giving the Gallery app a facelift with a new light color palette and slide-in drawer on the left edge. Motorola says that the image thumbnails are larger and navigation is simpler. At the heart of it this still looks like the same 'ol Gallery app and editing features, just with a little bit of tweaking to make it look and feel different.

The biggest story here is Motorola's ability now to update the Gallery app in the Play Store without updating all of its phones independently. The Moto X, Moto G and latest Droid devices on Verizon — provided they're running KitKat — are all compatible with this new Motorola Gallery and will receive updates through the Play Store from here on out.

If you have one of Moto's new devices, hit the Play Store link above to grab your new Gallery.

Looks too much like Google+ photos. I don't like it very much.

It looks more like the old gallery than the Google+ one.

Yes it is. Loving my Moto X as well.

LandLockedPH says:

Agree on Motorola... love my Droid MAXX!

sentinelred says:

I love my Moto X as well, but I gotta be honest. I kinda like the Google+ photos app better. Especially the icon, and I know that's probably the least important part.

Andrew ruined the Gallery app screenshot by having Phil on it!!!

That's Phil's own Gallery app. My own Gallery has a few less pictures of Phil in it ;) .

Now replace Motorola calender with Google calender (with an update)

Ry says:

Does Motorola Assist work correctly if you're using the Google Calendar?

still1 says:

that's a good point. but i think "calender storage" is where Moto Cal/OS gets the info from.. So I dont know if Assist will be affected or not

Colvin99 says:

Yes! I hate Motorola's calendar!

Colvin99 says:

And why don't they make Google keep, and Google now reminders feed into the calendar. I would love that.

I disabled my Gallery app awhile back. It seems redundant to the G+ Photos app.

amiright?

n0obpr0 says:

The only time (if) I use G+ photos app is to back up photos online. That's all. lol

xweb10 says:

I seem to remember Google+ Photos app having problems sharing to Facebook and the such. I may be wrong...

BobYes says:

Although I own the Moto X, the playstore says my phone incompatible with the new gallery app. What gives?

omega1300 says:

Are you on kitkat?

This update is pretty awesome. Any app with a proper hamburger menu tickles me pink, really.

They are calling it "Camera Roll"? I smell an Apple lawsuit.

rampage1979 says:

More manufactures should adopt this system of having their main apps in the play store. Great job Motorola hopefully other companies follow your lead.

Krouget says:

It's the default gallery app for newer Motorola devices. If it's not one of these, it won't be compatible.

sting7k says:

Neat.

I had to close and open it three times, I thought I was in the wrong app. I have to get used to it, I liked the old one a lot. But white is nice!

Wish I could access cloud accounts with this gallery. I hate using two.

Posted via Android Central App

I agree with TJH132 that accessing two accounts from one would be useful. I like the new look but do not like having to access two programs for photos and videos.
