An excellent alternative to the stock gallery on Android

Fish Bowl is a useful tool for those who are not satisfied about the classic gallery your phone provides. This is a photo and video organizer that can replace your old gallery.

You can edit and lock your private pictures, create slideshows, select pictures and put your favorite galleries in a better location. As for the navigation, Fish Bowl allows you to use photostream, a folder in which all the pictures are stored and you can easily view them all by swiping your finger. Also, share, crop, rotate and do many other tasks with the photos.

Pixie Reef LLC is the developer of Photo Gallery (Fish Bowl) a complete tool whose full list of features you can check in the developers' description. Design is a bit chaotic, still, but it's a useful feature in general.

    I have fishbowl downloaded on my htc inspire. Is it possible to erase pictures from the internal memory once I put them in a fishbowl album.Every time I make an album and go back and erase the pic from my main gallery,it erases it out of fishbowl too.

    I used to love this app, but I am now no longer able to move any photos to a folder.

    Been using this app for over a year and it was great. Now, however, deleted photos keep reappearing, even after trash has been emptied. Also the editing side of things has stopped working. For example, I try to crop a pic but get the " 0 photos edited" message. No response from them after several emails.
