Gallery (David):

    • Landed a major refactor of MediaDB to handle devicestorage change notifications so that media apps don't have to scan so often. It includes some minor API changes so can't be used as a drop-in replacment. Gallery has been converted to use it.
    • Music and Video will need conversion, too. Dale and Dominic: let me know if you want me to do this conversion
    • Gallery does still scan on start up, but no longer displays a modal dialog. Nice browser-style progress bar instead.
    • This week will be all about Activities. Gallery needs to interact with Camera, Contacts, Bluetooth and Homescreen (for wallpaper).
    • Will be writing a simple iconless Wallpaper picker app for displaying built-in wallpapers.
    • Gallery does not use fullscreen mode anymore. Do I need to bring that back? Casey?
    • Dale says that video capture is landing in the camera, so Gallery needs to be able to play videos.
    • I need someone to review Gallery and tell me what elements of visual design need to be fixed up and change. Is there a process for that?
    • Need to improve webgl performance in edit mode.
    • need UX guidance if we're going ot have more instagram-style filters
    • Bluetooth file transfer spec complete, need resourcing to implement. djf?
      • I can handle the gallery part of bluetooth. Don't have time to do all bluetooth.
