Best photo and video gallery apps for Android
One of the greatest things about the Android operating system is that you're free to modify or replace many of its elements, and we're not talking only about the way its interface looks. Android users are free to replace the core apps on their phones with alternatives – alternatives that can, in some cases, better suit the user's needs. The image gallery app is among them, and below you'll find some of the best image gallery replacement apps available on the Play store. These are apps that go beyond the simple function of displaying the photos you have stored. They are full-fledged image managers with useful management and editing tools built into them. Now go check them out!

Quickpic is a must. I always install it first whenever I flash a new rom

Right! It might not be as fancy as the others but it's the best imo..

Always QuickPic been using it for years and it's never failed me. Developer responds to user concerns too.

Has anyone tried IntelliPic? It seems good enough for me (I do not do any image editing though :))

Just tried Intellipic, reminds me the old icecream original image gallery under Archos 70 IT.
It's impressive, beautiful, with a touch of 3D.
Access to share functions is too slow. Missing details on pics.
But it lacks functionnality you can find in quikpic. Justpicture was also better, but dev discontinued.

What I want in gallery app is:
- fast navigation, even with heavy 5 Mo pics
- auto zoom, adapting to screen size
- slideshow
- easy switch between grid or detailed views
- fast album preview in one image
- easy share and interaction with smart tv, or pc, via wifi direct ...
- different sort list, by name, album, moments (aka dates)

A good bet would be to integrate quickpic best functions (moments, slideshow, view in map) in lollipop default image gallery.

Conerning this topic I also recommand the "PhotosIndex" Android appwhich enables to associate tags to your photos and to search them easily.
PhotosIndex uses the EXIF IPTC standard then no risk to damage your photos, no need of database. The keywords are stored in the JPG (JPEG) file.
PhotosIndex uses the XPKeywords TAG, created by Microsoft, so if you copy your photos on Windows PC you keep benefit of your associations.

For photo tagging i recommend Swifttags which makes it really easy. It also saves the tags in EXIF in standard format.
