Show Off Your Pictures with Fotolio
Did our previous story on ML Controller only serve to whet your appetite for photography-related Android apps? If so, we have another app aimed at delivering you Android-powered photography fix.
XDA forum member Apachi2k brings us an innovative and lightweight portfolio and gallery application, aptly titled Fotolio. What sets this tablet-optimized application apart from the standard gallery app is that it makes excellent use of the larger screen real estate that a 7- or 10-inch tablet can afford. It accomplishes this with excellent navigation and recently added multi-touch features.
In the words of the developer:
I am a photographer and know a little bit of programming from high school days. I love the Xoom tablet and first thing I thought of using it for was for my photography portfolio. I soon realized that the built-in gallery is way overkill for something like a portfolio which gave me an idea to develop a simple app suited to showcase art or photography portfolios.
Before I share the app, let me just say that when I say I know very little about programming, I mean really very little. This app is fully functional on my Xoom but that is the only device I have been able to test it for. Theoretically, it should work with any Honeycomb tablet (maybe even some Gingerbread ones) but everything has been configured for the Xoom. With that said, below is a link
to the latest version of the app.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
