High performance access to file storage

Android App of the Week Turning your Android phone into an impromptu picture frame can be the perfect source of escapism during a dull day and while there’s nothing actually wrong with the basic slideshow feature of the standard Android gallery it’s just that, basic.

Floating Image: rally your sources, apply your settings...

Floating Image is altogether more visually appealing and lets you lose yourself in a multi-layered cascade of images that drift across your screen like leaves floating down a brook on a summer’s evening.

Poetic imagery aside, Floating Image is a very flexible little app. To start with, you can source pictures from either selected local folders on your phone, or from Picasa, Flickr and Facebook.

The speed of the image drift can be chosen from one of five speeds bracketing glacial to zippy and the background colour can be set to whatever hue best serves your mood and temper.

The order in which images stream past can also be set to either random or fixed, the latter determined by file name.

...watch your holiday snaps float by

Tap an image as it drifts by and it will zoom into full screen, tap it again and it shrinks back and the float continues. Press and hold the screen, and the drift pauses until you repeat the action.
