PocketCM ImageViewer DAILY build

PocketCM ImageViewer is currently a test version, the purpose is to experiment what's possible with image on our Windows Mobile device using the PocketCM framework.

New: OpenGL version (tested on Diamond, should work on touch pro, touch hd, and probably any device with hardware accelerated opengl. Compare opengl and software version, and post result!

To get the daily build : http://www.pocketcm.com/daily.php . Please if you're not confident with beta software, don't try this, wait for a release.

Important: The FPS counter shown IS NOT the actual FPS, the screen get only redrawn on specific event (finger, key press, etc..), so if you don't do anything with the app, it never redraw the screen, therefore the number of frame per second is very low. PLEASE DON'T COMPARE WITH OTHER SOFT FOR FPS, compare what you actually experience


ImageViewer 0.9 (08/03/2008)

- Set image to contact option, with cropping/scaling support.
- All image set to contact will have a maximum size of 320*320 (suitable for full screen call notification)
- New jpeg loader, up to 400% speed improvement on some image.
- Header buttons needs to be pressed on in order to work: avoid closing the app while rotating.

ImageViewer 0.8 (07/30/2008)

- Rotation support (scroll from top to bottom on the rightmost part on the screen when in slide or zoom mode).
- Variable zoom support (slide on the bottom on the screen to change zoom)
- Header button now disappear after a few seconds of inactivity, allowing you to see the picture fullscreen.
- Rewritten image loading engine, should be faster but mostly support bigger image. The good news is that those improvment will be in the next PocketCM Contact build.

ImageViewer 0.7 (07/24/2008)

- Added send via MMS, mail, ...
- Added delete picture (with confirmation)
- Added image caching, remember it's caching, so the first load still takes some times, the second load is faster.
- Bug fixes

ImageViewer 0.6 (07/21/2008)

- Favorite folder list: now you can mark folder as favorite, in order to get a shorter list of the useful folder
- Folder are sorted alphabetically not by image count anymore
- Improved look: comes with a default theme now
- Performance enhancement
- Bug fixes
- You can customize the theme in theme.zip, feel free to post if you make something that look great ;)



ImageViewer 0.5 (07/20/2008)

- This is a major release, so expect lot of new things... and lot of new bugs
- Integrated "flow", grid, slide and folder browser in one app
- New image grid, showing thumbnail
- Press the upper right button to exit
- Press the mode button (@) to switch between flow and grid, or to go back to image list when in slide mode
- Press the back button (top left) to go back to the folder list
- Pressing on an image in flow or thumbnail mode, goes to slide mode
- For theme: the application always dump all the setting when exiting, have a look at dump.txt in your imageviewer folder to start customizing it. Like PocketCM Contact, you need to put a settings.ini with the settings you want to customize in it, they will be loaded at startup. Future release may include theme/options support, but for now, it's intented for testing


ImageViewer 0.4
- Folder list: your start the application, you'll see a scrollable list of all your folder containing pictures, simply tap on one to see the pictures in this folder
- Images smaller than screen aren't resized anymore
- Fixed zoom out animation: not it revert back to unzoomed image position correctly
- Zoom now focus on the tapped zone (tap on the head of a friend, you end up with his head zoomed
- Performance tuning
- Migration to PocketCM framework, settings documentation will come soon...
- Bug fixes

ImageViewer 0.3:
- Image rotation support: maximize the visible space by rotating image.
- Lanscape mode support
- Memory optimization

ImageViewer 0.2:
- zoom: tap on a picture to zoom, double tap to unzoom.
- improved memory management

ImageViewer 0.1
Initial version:
- To close: tap on the upper right corner (like if there was a close button)
- Copy (unzip) to a folder that contains image.
- ImageViewer load image in the background, if you see a white grey box in the top left, that means ImageViewer is loading image.
- Simply slide left or right to go to the previous/next picture.

I don't know yet if it will become a product one day, it's just a experiment for now, if you want it to continue to evolve, support me: http://www.pocketcm.com/donation.php

Sounds good,

I put it on my (dutch) HTC Touch,

i put it in the folder were all my pictures are because thats what he wants.
then i opened it..

it was loading (gray box in the left corner)
then it asked me to choose a program to close because it does not have enough memory.

i closed everything that was running but it still needed more memory.

so in the end, cant use it.

how much free ram do you have before starting it?

I'm using a Touch, and it works fine for me.

Hi,

I tried this time with images from my DSLR that had been reduced from 3.3mb to about 80K.

Results
1. The files could be seen.
2. However, the images are pixelated (as if it was stretched from a small thumbnail)
3. There are a total of 8 images.
4. Whenever I scroll back and forth, it sometimes display the image path rather than the image (for a second or two) before returning backe to the pixelated picture.
5. Waited for 10 minutes, results is still the same.

@all

Can you retry I uploaded the wrong file.

The version you tested used lot of resources per image.

I tested on my touch with 2 mp image (so 1600*1200), I can't say loading is really fast, but sliding seems good to me (considering it's a 200Mhz device).

Hi tene,

Nice job, perfect for Touch :)

In French :
Etant plus facile pour moi de m'exprimer en français, juste pour confirmer le bug de certaines images qui pixelisent, d'aprés ce que j'ai vu c'est uniquement sur des images qui ont été redimensionées (sous photoshop pour ma part) alors qu'elles s'affichent bien ailleur (Pocket CM ou Visioneur d'origine). Peut être une histoire de compression jpg ?

A part ca c'est vraiment bien, j'en avais essayé un dans le même style posté içi mais qui marchait mal, j'espére que tu vas pousuivre le développement, il y a un vrais potentiel surtout qu'une eventuelle mise à jour de HTC avec la fonctionalité équivalente (du Nike) n'est pas sur du tout ;)

Petite suggestion, un slide un peu plus réactif (ou rapide) un peu comme sur le cube se serais pas mal, j'ai un peu de mal parfois a faire défiler.
