Have an underused tablet? Fotoo turns your tablet into a slideshow player, a digital picture frame, for your photos hosted on your favourite cloud like Dropbox, Google Drive.
I've recently rebuilt the app from ground up with a strong focus on improving the visual as well as providing a smoother user experience. The interface has been re-designed. More transitions effects to select from. An a much enhanced scheduler for you to schedule automatic app launch/exit. Do let me know what you think of the app i.e. areas for improvement, features lacking, or anything, when you have a moment to spare to try it out.
Fotoo turns your Android device into a powerful photo frame with great emphasis on its design and user experience. Allows playing photo slideshow from cloud storage options like Dropbox and Google Drive, or from local network such as Samba.
Updates this week:
This app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bo.fotoo&hl=en looks promising.. But, it's so expensive(~$20) for just a screensaver...
Take an old Android phone or tablet, install Fotoo from the play store. You can configure it to pull photos from SMB, make sure to increase the cache size to as much as you can fit on the device.
I've done this for 4 old old old tablets I've had laying around.
Yes... Have two of those...
One I use for reading news everyday and works well enough. Maybe not totally snappy but smooth enough...
Other one has non working touch (with some ghost touches at times) which I have made into a digital photo frame with the app Fotoo.
Overall, it's (Nexus 7 2013) an amazing device...
I also have a 2012 Nexus 7C. That one is really slow...
I just discovered the android app Fotoo. This looks like a good solution for my needs and I can reuse my old tablet. You can access files from Dropbox, Google Photos, One Drive, local library and SMB share.
Take an old Android tablet and install Fotoo and just have a digital photo frame!
I use it with my NAS and several old devices I have had so I can keep the last decade of photos on a slide show throughout my house. No wasted materials and I can stay surrounded by memories of my family's life.
Thanks for the reply. Just to clarify, do you mean the photos are not displaying correctly in their actual orientation? If that's the case it's a terrible bug in the app and I will work on it immediately. It'll help me a lot with a screenshot of any sort (my email is listed on here)
Nice suggestion! I found a link to Fotoo
Big fan of Fotoo
This photo frame is alright:
I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bo.fotoo&hl=en_US on an Android tablet and https://apps.apple.com/us/app/liveframe/id860372559 on an iPad (with one of these frames https://www.amazon.com/iFrame-White-Beautiful-Interactive-Digital/dp/B06XXN8HVZ). Both work great but the iPad one looks nicer/more polished. The Android app doesn't have the ability to go dark at a certain time (but I use Llama for that - other apps like tasker would work too). That iPad solution is better all together and more simple, but more expensive. I use a Google Photos album for both.
There are plenty of apps that will do this. Here is one I use
