These AOSP based ROMs bring a lot of features that are otherwise not present on stock or even OEM modified Android iterations. Moreover, ROMs are often swiftly updated with new features, which means that they almost always have something new to offer. CyanogenMod today launched GalleryNext on the Play Store, its their new software that seeks to revamp the built-in image gallery that ships with their ROMs.
The team believes that the current AOSP Gallery shipping with its ROMs is “severely lacking,” and it has addressed this with GalleryNext. Available in beta, the new app brings all pictures in one centralized location and offers integration with a plethora of cloud services such as Dropbox, Flickr, Picasa and Facebook. It also touts Moments support, which automatically classifies and groups media based on meta data. GalleryNext also supports video playback and GIF, along with deduplication in ‘All’ view and more. Upcoming features include editor support and implement of Android 4.4 KitKat’s immersive mode user interface. Since this is a beta release, there might be a few bugs here and there, which will be taken care of in the subsequent updates.
