Motorola updates Gallery app; fresh new design inbound

moto gallery

Motorola has today rolled out a new version of its Gallery app through the Google Play Store, bringing an overhauled, fresh new look. The update is compatible with the Moto G, as well as other devices not available in Australia (Moto X, Droid Ultra, Mini and Maxx), as long as they’re running Android 4.4.

The new version specifically features a new, lighter coloured design, and a few new lenses through which to sort through your photos. In particular, there’s the current ‘Album’ view that was available earlier, but there’s now also a timeline view which allows you to view photos in the sequence taken, based on grouping by date.

There’s also a new Camera Roll mode that provides larger thumbnails and improved organisation of images. The update feels a lot like Google’s Photos app, but without the cloud tie-in.

If you’ve got a compatible handset you can grab it on the Play Store today.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were “transportable” and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia’s most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
