Gallery on Android

anthony43 just announced the release of ReGalAndroid, an Android client for Gallery 2 and Gallery 3. Search for "regalandroid" in the Android market, check it out, and file bugs here if you find any. There is also a discussion thread in our forums.

ReGalAndroid currently supports browsing and sharing of items in both Gallery 2 and Gallery 3, and can add new photos only to Gallery 2. Hopefully full Gallery 3 write support is just around the corner!

Gallery 3 Theme Spotlight: GreyDragon

Serge D has been hard at work for some time on the GreyDragon theme for Gallery3. It's one of the core team's favorites, and if you're looking for something other than the stock Gallery 3 theme, it's definitely worth looking into! Here's what Serge has to say:

Started as a way to move my G2 photo gallery into G3 world, the GreyDragon theme is now 1.5 years old. The main goal has been to a build simple yet robust and configurable theme with minimum JavaScript functionality for my web-site, all while having fun testing new things. In part inspired by Mustafa Incel's Carbon theme for G2, GreyDragon now has over 30 configuration options and numerous color packs, making it the most flexible G3 Theme available.
