It's been an incredible journey since me and Liam Spradlin started this project. We set to create the best gallery for Android, providing the best user experience with the best design inspired by Material.

I speak for myself, but I'm sure for Liam Spradlin too, we're incredibly proud of this first production version. I can finally use a gallery that doesn't suck and I can organize my media files exactly like I want to - and I don't need to be signed in to a cloud service to do so.

We're also incredibly happy about the features we were able to cram in. I can't wait for you to try them all and have a pleasant experience.

There's obviously much more to come and I look forward to integrate Google Photos support for Focus 1.1 and much more!

A special thanks to all the testers that provided not only valuable feedback, but bug reports!

Time to download Focus and enjoy it!

Very nice!! I like the clean look and yet no feature was left out. Awesome App!!!

The ONLY way this could be even better is by adding support to DropBox. Since DropBox took a giant step backwards with their newest release

We have some ideas about some kind of cloud integration, but we don't have a clear path yet :)

Does the tagging feature write meta-data to the picture files themselves?

Nope, but we're looking at that possibility for the future.

    Focus 1.0.2 is OUT NOW - moar Materiyolo

    After a well deserver 4-days off, we now have a new version of Focus.
    We focused on user reviews and constructive criticism to improve our app, and this is what we came up with:

    1 - More materiyolo - and we made picture transitions work for all Android versions
    2 - Added translation to Spanish and Portuguese
    3 - Roughly 4x better performance when opening Tags/Collections
    4 - Use a coloured toolbar for tags and visual consistency
    5 - Fixed a bug where Multi-selection would act weird in some rare cases
    6 - Fixed a bug where the UI would be visible when you rotate the device on the picture viewer. Now it maintains its state between rotation
    7 - Fixed a bug where the overlay tags wouldn’t show up depending on the UI visibility on the picture viewer

    APK Mirror: http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/francisco-franco/focus/focus-1-0-2-2-android-apk-download/
    Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.franco.focus

    We added translations because of the ridiculous amount of 1-stars due to lack of localisation. Thanks to Eduardo Pereda for the Spanish translation.

    Watch tonight's +All About Android with +Jason Howell for an highlight about Focus!

    We have a lot of new ideas and features coming in soon!

    I leave you with this #materiyolo gif.
