Enjoy Your Pics on Android Thanks to FrameMe
The frame widget that is on available on stock Android is faulty at best and occupies quite a bit of space. XDA member PhilD41 has created an app for the hero that he is sharing for other Android users out there. The app is called FrameMe and basically is a smaller portrait widget, which only occupies 1×1 of your screen. On top of that, the app will resize the picture to full scree once you tap on it, allowing you to scroll through the different pictures in the directory where the selected picture is located.
The app is free, but there is a Donate version available if you want to get it from the alternate site. Make sure that you leave feedback for the dev if you can think of any improvements.
I originally wrote Frame me for my Hero and released it under the Hero forums. Since it should work on any phone I though I would add a thread here as well. I only have my Hero to test with so if you have something other than a Hero I would love to hear your feedback.
In short, Frame me is a 1×1 widget of a photo that enlarges to full screen when clicked.
You can find more information in the application thread.

These options, however, seemed a bit tepid at best; the Nexus Player was extremely limited in nature, offering very little storage, weak...
One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...
It has now been seen that Android M will receive a new app drawer as part of the stock launcher. The first four icons you will see in your drawer now will be automatically updated to represent your recently used applications. Whether or not this will be directly based on those apps seen in your recent apps menu or uses a combination of that and your most frequently used apps remains to be seen. Below this is the start of a standard...
