FrameMe Widget review

Do you enjoy having photos on your homescreen of loved ones or just of something that puts a smile on your face, but you don’t like the look and large size of the default Android picture frame widget? Then you should give FrameMe a try, and even those who normally wouldn’t use a picture widget might enjoy it.

For users concerned about screen estate, a benefit of FrameMe is its small size: it only takes up a 1×1 space on your homescreen (can be enlarged with LauncherPro). The best part, though, is the built-in image viewer: when you tap on the picture frame, the photo will be shown in full-screen and you can scroll left and right to browse the folder of your choice. It’s an easy way to show off your favorite photos, as it provides quick access to the pictures you view the most.

There are 7 different frames available, including Black Curve, Wood, Elegant Edge and Rustic Edge. FrameMe can be downloaded for free from the widget’s thread at xda-developers, and if you want to support the developer there is also a donate version available on the Market for $0.99.
