PhotoStream Application for Android


Google has just announced a new Open Source (Sample) Application for Android called Photostream, announcing it this morning on the Android Developer’s Blog. Photostream is a simple photo browser that integrates with Flickr and all you need to run it are a username (Google provides a default username for testing purposes).

Developers might also want to note the inclusion of which Google says will help you write background operations at the UI thread.

Based on the pictures it looks pretty cool. The tilte icons remind me a bit of the LG Dare default settings and the ability to add shortcuts to any user’s photostream are pretty neat. This is a great example of a simple, intuitive application that serves a great purpose and I expect that developers will find this useful. But I suppose I should let developer’s determine that… eh?

Here’s a few screen shots from the post:

I'm an Android and Tech lover, but first and foremost I consider myself a creative thinker and entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for ideas of all sizes. I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?
