HTC One M9's new Gallery app will help you find lost pictures, no matter where you stored them
In this modern day and age, where we all walk with a personal camera in our pocket, snapping pictures on a daily basis is as common as can be. Within a month, a user who takes an average of 3 pictures per day can end up with around 100 pictures, all used to capture memorabilia, interesting sights, or anything worth sharing or storing for later viewing. Depending on the picture's purpose, it either remains stored on our phone, cloud, or gets instantly shared on social media. However, due to the large influx of new images, it quickly gets buried, forgotten, and lost.

HTC understands this plight of the modern smartphone user and has developed new features for its Gallery app, which comes with the Sense 7 on the One M9, strides to help us with finding pictures, which have been lost in the great void of storage options. The app will show you not only the pictures that are stored on your phone, but also the ones that are on your cloud and social networks. Advanced search filters will allow you to view images by date, location, event type, album, and if this doesn't help – the app also has an Image Match feature, which will scan a face, then give you all pictures of this person that it can find in the above-mentioned places.

Owners of other high-end HTC smartphones, at least the more recent ones, shouldn't feel left out – we hear that they will be getting Sense 7 at some point later this year.

You mean, like the Galaxy S5 which could show pictures from Dropbox, Google+, recognize photos of animals, vehicles, landscapes, people..., sort photos by albums, date, etc. ? This is a one year old feature, it's old fashioned now.
