- Retaining of the photo's aspect ratio (never improperly stretches or cuts off any part of it)
- Customizable photo frame of any color you like
- Slideshow of all photos in a directory (customizable photo update interval: every 10 seconds, every minute, every hour, every day, etc.)
- Built-in photo cropping and rotating

How to use:

This is a widget for your homescreen (desktop). To use it, please follow these simple steps.

For newer versions of Android (e.g. 4.0), you may drag and drop a Nice Simple Photo item from the Widgets tab of your app list to the home screen. You may refer to this demonstration video:

For older versions (e.g. 2.3.3) you can long press (i.e. tap and hold) on any empty space on your home screen, then select Widgets and choose a Nice Simple Photo item.

Different items correspond to different widget sizes.

Tapping the widget will open the configuration screen. You can configure the widget and browse the photos which are in the same directory of the currently selected photo there. You can add more than one "Nice Simple Photo Widget" to your home screen and each of them can have its own unique appearance settings.
*NOTE* If the photo does not update properly, please exclude this widget from any task killer app that you might be using. You can also try to remove this widget from your homescreen and add it back again, and see if it solves the problem.

    I can't believe that many apps are MBs big and have so many troubles to display a simple picture, resizeable... and this having cropping and rotation? and ability to choose existence of frame border? and it doesn't stretch awkwardly when resizing the widget? this app is a 15/5

    This seems like a really cool app. I really like the idea of further personalization. However, I'm having an issue. At times, very frequently, the pictures will change. Other times, less frequently, multiple frames will empty themselves.
