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.

    Im pretty sure this is the app that was killing my battery. I couldn't get my phone to charge or hold a charge since I downloaded it. Uninstalled it and issue seems to be nearly immediately resolved.

    If I could give negative stars I would. Won't let me set it up at all! I can put it on the home screen but that's it. Can't add a picture, all it says it click to set up. Wasted my time
