Android: The default Android gallery app leaves much to be desired. There are plenty of alternatives, but Scalado Album is a gallery app with a lot going for it. The app offers near-instant pan and zoom, loads multiple photo libraries quickly, supports photos and video along with animated video thumbnails, lets you hide photos or entire galleries, and even looks great on Android tablets.
Scalado Album's banner feature is its speed. The app loads photos and albums remarkably fast, it can zoom in on images past 100 per cent, and it starts playing video with little buffering or loading time. The app supports extended EXIF data and geolocation data associated with your photos, and it even has a view where you can browse your photos on a map. You can also view your photos organised by gallery, create folders to make sub-galleries, or browse your photos chronologically like any other gallery tool.
Scalado Album will set you back $0.99, which may be a bitter pill for people who prefer free apps such as our favourite for Android, JustPictures! or previously mentioned QuickPic. Still, if you're willing to part with a dollar, Scalado Album can completely change the way you interact with your photos and video on your phone.
