"Browse the fastest"

Reviewed by / Apr 25, 2012

Great photo browser

Scalado album is the first of several apps from Swedish developer Scalado, highly specialized in image apps. Album is a super fast image browser and manager. Not only it files your pics by date and place (which is already something wonderful per se) but also allow instant zooms in and pans, as sliding to next pic ultrafastly and super smoothly.

Of course, the standard sharing features haven't been forgotten, so we could summarize it all telling that it's the picture browser that any device should have by default. Well, we call it picture browser because we're too used to, because it also manages prettily video, even giving animated previews.

Overall performance is awesome and tablet optimization is great, too. Highly recommendable.

Developer's original description available here
The Scalado Album is designed for making your everyday photo experience great. We want to bring you the best user experience possible but still keep the design simplistic and responsive. It is built from ground up using the Scalado Imaging Platform to enable maximum performance on Android. The album allows you to quickly find the photos you are looking for and you can smoothly zoom into every single detail in full resolution.

Please note:
Due to Nokia’s acquisition of certain Scalado assets, referring to both companies press releases, the Scalado Album for Android platform will only be available until December 31st 2012 for download. No further upgrades of the software will be offered during the remaining period.

We still value your feedback a lot. For project reference please report bugs and feature requests to our email below and not in the user review.

    A very well thought out app. Please don't update this app by adding useless stuff in the future!

    On my Droid X it doesn't work with my video files, and I can't tell if map view is actually showing my pictures :( On the plus side, it scrolls pretty smoothly and zooms well.

    Replaced stock gallery. So much faster than QuickPic and doesn't corrupt pics like Quickpic. Worth the $.
