Team review

" The photo frame widget. "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 7 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible from version 1.5 of Android. Any supperior OS version will support it.

Its weight is very light, less than a megabyte is sufficient to store and operate.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) makes it an extremely popular application and rightly so. More than a million users are using it on mobile or on touch pad.

Negative review What's the point by anonym
Of an app that's supposed to make something simple and instead I have to fiddle with it to gain picture quality and center it. This app is horrible. 1/5
Negative review Total Crap by anonym
Images of great quality look grainy as hell and if that were not enough, it skews the proportions too. Totally worthless junk. Uninstall. 1/5
Positive review Awesome by anonym
Just what I needed. For those having problem with poor image after resizing ,I use go launcher and there was no lost in image quality. 5/5
Negative review Freezes by anonym
Great concept, but it needs work. The widget freezes if you try to add a second widget (including on separate screen) and if you try to remove the widget in order to re-add if you want to change the picture. 2/5
Negative review by anonym
Worked 1 out of 8-10 tries, the way you crop the picture is never how it ends up in the frame, and locked my home screen after every failed try. 1/5
Negative review uninstalling by anonym
I needed one to use for a full page frame (or close) caz the android photo frame-some red headed family pops up sometime. But this one my pic turns out blurred. 2/5
Negative review Cropping? by anonym
The select picture dialog has a crop step, which is good. But the image displayed is very low quality and not cropped correctly. 2/5
Positive review Its good..but... by anonym
I really wish it had a 2x2 option. I like to place my apps around a center photo... Not that the developer would see this, but if you happen to. A 2x2 option would make me love you forever. 4/5
Negative review Bummed. by anonym
Was excited to see this was available until I tried it. All pics are blurry. Back to the drawing board I guess. 1/5
Negative review Blurry by anonym
For some reason the pictures come out blurry. Would not recommend. 1/5
Negative review 4x4 not working by anonym
When trying to use it I liked the other sizes for decorating the parts of my menu but I am using a Acer Iconia tab 501 and the 4x4 frame keeps coming up as 3x3 so I can not rate it to hi seeing as you did not leave a warning or tested it you're self. But just to warn the next person in case it does it to them on the same device or another if it is not contained to just the tablet I am using. 2/5
Negative review Doesn't work with EVO LTE JB by anonym
It worked with ICS but now that the JB update came out, I haven't been able to get it to work. Did a full phone wipe and clean install but still no good. 2/5
Positive review Great! by anonym
Exactly what I wanted and no permissions. Thank you! Also - those having issues with cropping - I think it is more to do with the quality of your pic and attempting to enlarge it beyond what you should. 5/5
Negative review Its great when it works (Galaxy Nexus) by anonym
It rarely works, rarely. When I turn my phone off and on, this app always fails. When my phone stays on for a while, it randomly fails a lot. 1/5
Negative review Blurry by anonym
Photos are blurry after cropping. Fix this and will be 5 stars as this is exactly what I want. 2/5
Negative review Doesn't work by anonym
Tried putting pictures on blank pages it used to work on my old phone. Now with the S4 it doesn't work, VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! 1/5
Negative review Really pap by anonym
Seriously this is awful. I'd be embarrassed to put my name to it. In fact I am embarrassed I installed it. Uninstalled immediately as it destroys the quality of every image. Yuk. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
Doesnt work. Ive tried all the sizes and it doesnt work at all. Very disappointed. I was really looking forward to using this widget. 1/5
Neutral review Bionic. by anonym
Blurry on bionic. Would like. 2x2 frame. I expect to wait for support on newer devices on a free app. 5/5 stars if it gets both of those. 3/5
Positive review Great widget!! by anonym
Minus one only for the croping problem. I got 5 frames in one of my homescreen (thanks to go launcher i am not limited to 4 sizes) can't wait for the update!! Thanks!! 4/5
Negative review by anonym
The way u crop the pik is NEVER how it shows up. Not many sizes, but I can resize em however I want w. LauncherPro, so no biggie. Resolution sux too. 2/5
Negative review Absolutely ruins image quality... worthless. by anonym
No matter what image I use even downloaded hd images they still come out looking like a pixelated 1mp shot. 1/5
Negative review Blurry photos, WTF??? by anonym
Pointless widget. Photos are pixelated/blurry. Who wants to view their photos that way? Don't waste your time downloading this POS app. 1/5
Negative review It used to be the best choice for me, on my Droid II (with 2.2)... by anonym
But not anymore, on my Droid III (with 2.3). Picture now look very blurry. I'll have to uninstall to free up space. Hope check back for improvements. 2/5
Negative review Very poor quality ? by anonym
I love the fact that there is an app to look at just a simple photo on the home screen, but I hate that the photo(s) that I want to use are always too blurry & not HD like they should be. Please fix this issue for the Motorola Atrix 2. 1/5
Negative review Didn't want to believe other reviews... by anonym
Horrible picture quality... Very blurry images! Would give 0 stats off it was an option. 1/5
Negative review Shame about the prep by anonym
Great app idea but unfortunately it takes a lot of work to get the image right with right level of zoom, detail and quality. Please include advice about resolution and size of image required to make preparation quicker 1/5
Neutral review by anonym
Works nice. But, lacks important 4x1,4x2 sizes. Crop tool doesn't keep aspect ratio of selected picture frame. So hard to get what you want to show. 3/5
Negative review 5 Stars when you update with a 5x5 frame. by anonym
Samsung Galaxy Note Only slightly fills the screen. Will rate five stars when there is a 5x5 frame or preferrably frames are resizable. Best frame widget available but it is really hard to put the picture in it right. You need a preview of the actual thing and also allow users to pick and change frame size in the app and not in the widgets menu. One star would be unfair though. In general it is a good app but it cannot score high with my new phone. Four stars with Galaxy S I. 2/5
Neutral review Ok by anonym
Its okay... my phone camera has 8mp and the pictures look like it was taken with a 1mp camera. Poor quality. Wish there was more customization too. 3/5
Neutral review Needs work by anonym
Nice to have a simple frame widget without unnecessary frills, but is let down by its failure to handle aspect ratio properly. Unless you clip your photo to the exact aspect of the widget you're loading (and there's nothing to guide you) then the picture is distorted. Too much work, may come back later and see if this is fixed. 3/5
Positive review by anonym
To the ppl giving bad review because not in app list, this is a WIDGET and wont be in app list. Would like smaller sizes to fit more pics to same scn 4/5
Negative review Needs work! by anonym
The selected image is always very blurry. Once fixed, this app will be useful. But until then, I'm afraid it's close to useless! I would like to encourage the dev to continue towards a functional version though. Lastly, I'd like to thank the dev for the time spent on this. Hopefully we will see an updated version soon. 2/5
Positive review Nice by anonym
I can finally make an entire screen a picture! Love it! No it doesn't have zooming issues. I call that a human error. It only does what you tell it to do. If you select the whole pic on a smaller frame it's obviously not going to give perfect results, use your brain people! 5/5
Positive review Great but... by anonym
It's tricky to get the picture quality right on my Galaxy S. Have to use the 3x3 widget for everything and only use high quality images. I just resize the images using GO Launcher and the quality is great. A shame that it's this tough to figure out but it's lightweight and free so I'm happy. 4/5
Neutral review Works but not ideal for tablets by anonym
I will happily get the donated version if larger widget sizes were made as well as the ability to set the picture frames to a slide show of a folder or just selected images.. I'm a graphic artist so I want ti be able to show off my stuff on my homescreen 3/5
Negative review uninstalling by anonym
sorry but i dont feel i should have to crop ANY of my images just to use this widget. if the WHOLE PICTURE (NOT JUST PART) cant JUST BE DISPLAYED WITHOUT CROPPING i dont want it. 1 star just because of cropping 1/5
Negative review No Pic after a while by anonym
It works great the picture looks amazing n I like how the frame looks on my home screen. The only problem is that after a day or so there is an empty frame on my screen. The picture is gone n I have to delete that frame n do it over again. It gets annoying 1/5
Negative review Nice concept, doesn't work on Android 5 by anonym
02-05 13:52:21.676 E/Launcher(2510): Error: appWidgetId (EXTRA_APPWIDGET_ID) was not returned from the widget configuration activity. The photo chooser displays but then I'm taken back to the widget selection screen. 2/5
Negative review Force close and issues One X by anonym
Had this for a long time and was great to find a frame that fit 3x2 scale. Problem is that for me it continuously force closes and increasingly causes crashes on my HTC. Uninstalled it now but will keep an eye out for updates and may give it another go in the future. 1/5
