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.

    You would think it is easy to find a good photo widget app but many just miss the boat. This app works well with the right options. Donation to the dev on the way!

    Does exactly what I need it to do which is cycle thru all the photos in a selected folder & display them on a homescreen. Looks fab if you select the option to lose the frame + it does not tamper with the photo aspect so you get to see the pic exactly as you would in your gallery . Also supports click to view in a selected gallery app. Great job all round.
