  • The standard Android gallery app that comes pre-loaded onto the device is pretty good but lacks certain features that will some of you look for alternatives on the Play Store. There aren’t that many options available so it’s nice to see developer Seelye Engineering offering a great way to browse and manage our media files.


    F-Stop Media Gallery lets you view and organizing every possible media file format, complete with thumbnails and metadata. Filtering  your files by Album, Date Taken, Date Modified and Number of Views should help you deal with large amounts of data more quickly.
