QuickPic: A Brief Review

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the photo gallery application found on the Samsung Galaxy S2. QuickPic is a nice free app that shows all of your pictures in a nice clear format.

As QuickPic is a free app, I can’t make too many complaints. Pinch-to-zoom would be a welcomed feature, but that’s about it. QuickPic is a nice alternative to the standard gallery that comes with my device. It replaces the 3D-like UI of the stock gallery app with a flat, more refined look. Photos are still organized into folders, such as Camera, Downloads, etc.

Opening a folder brings up a 3-column grid that simply scrolls up and down, unlike the 4-row left-to-right grid found in the stock gallery app. Once you’ve selected an image, you can crop, rotate, move or copy it to another location, rename it, set it as a wallpaper or contact icon, and of course share it.

For the moment, there’s no syncing of Facebook or Picasa web albums, but I suspect this feature is under construction and will be hitting the app soon.

That’s just about all there is to say about this app. It’s not an extravagant gallery with lists upon lists of features, but it gets the job done. QuickPic would be my first suggestion to anyone that’s looking for a simple replacement to the stock gallery app. If you’d like to give it a try, you can download it by using the box below.

So, what gallery app do you use? Are you satisfied with the stock gallery? Sound off in the comments!

    Definitely a great alternative for stock gallery.
    Nice addition is folder exclusion, which, unlike putting a .nomedia file in a directory, doesn’t exclude other files like mp3s. Handy for excluding album covers.
    BTW quickpic actually offers pinch to zoom (sgs II).

      Yeah, what are you talking about no pinch-to-zoom?

    I use it on my HTC Desire and pinch-to-zoom works nicely there. One feature you don’t mention that I enjoy is the way videos are presented along with images and can be played directly within QuickPic.

    I use this as my default image viewer.  It’s fast, simple, and the image quality it excellent, even when zoomed (a lot of others I’ve tried seem to downsample the image and it looks rubbish when you zoom in).

    Also have no problem with pinch/strech to zoom (Optimus 2x).
