Fish Bowl is immeasurably better than the "Gallery" app that comes pre-installed on the Nook Color. It loads quicker, it runs smoother, it lets you DO some things with your pictures (like sorting and cropping and such -- as opposed to just letting you LOOK at them), and best of all, it actually understands the concept of *FOLDERS*.

~ Seriously, whose stupid idea was it to have the Nook's "Gallery" app load every single picture (and video!) you have, as if they're all in one folder together? ~

Fish Bowl is worth every penny, and more. If you like having lots of pictures on your Nook, you NEED this app.

The main benefit is sorting your pictures and videos in folders for easy retrieval. The thumbnail display in the folder view is pleasing to the eye.

The app is not as intuitive as they describe. The features and benefits are not as impressive as they would have you believe. However the layout and design is a thing of beauty.

With some added functionality this app would really rock. At minimum, please add the ability to name files. Especially videos.

    Better than Nook's Gallery

    Fish Bowl is much better than the built-in photo viewing app, but is still quirky and has bugs.

    OK for the price

    It's not all that configurable - I'd like to have options to display captions or file names with pictures; I'd like a variety of dissolves/fades from one picture to the next; I'd like to be able to span a slide show across multiple folders. It'll do for now.

    Out of control

    At first seemed ok - could scroll thru my 300+ photos, which i cdnt do without it on my Nook tablet. Even reading tutorials n help, cd not figure out how to put edited album back on my pc. Will now try to read pixiereef but dont know how close that is to fish bowl. ALSO, my photos are now shuffled visually n i NEVER selected that! Maybe others will hv better luck n not a huge investment, just frustrating to ME!
