As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
View Images without the Black Bars with Full Screen Pic
Isn’t it annoying how the aspect ratios of our captured images don’t exactly match up with the aspect ratios on our device screens? OK, fine. There are far worse “problems” in the world than those vertical black bars that you see while browsing your pictures in the gallery app. After all, you can just zoom in a bit to make use of your full panel. However, that’s not to say that they’re not annoying. Sometimes, it would be more convenient for the images to maximize themselves, especially when putting on a slideshow of images for friends. And it’s with this in mind, that XDA Forum Member cb56 brings us the aptly title Full Screen Pic.
As the application’s name implies, Full Screen Pic allows you to view your pics in full screen. If you wish to view the entire picture and regain the black bars, you can do so as well by simply double tapping the image. There is also an option that allow you to set how aggressively the zoom functions. For example, you can toggle whether you’d like for it to zoom to a fairly great degree in order to remove the black bars, even if your image is in a different orientation.
As one would expect from such a replacement gallery application, it includes slideshow functionality so that you can easily show off your images to your friends. And of course, you can always hook up your device to an external display via HDMI, if your device supports it.
To display your images without the black bars, head over to the application thread.
