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.
As an amateur photographer myself, this application seems very useful. Those wishing to get started should head over to the application thread.

The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...

Editor’s note: This week's feature has been written by forum member RowHanSolo and takes a look at the exciting prospect of launching satellites fitted with little more than an Android phone as an onboard computer. From a university to NASA, multiple projects like this have launched! Technology is an ever-growing industry, regardless of which corner you look at. However, each area of technology has its limitations on what it can do and how far it can expand. For satellite technology,...
