The CyanogenMod team is trying to find new was of making the highly-appreciated ROM even more popular, and after they announced that some devices will run CM out of the box, now we hear that they have released a new gallery app to Google Play. The new app is called GalleryNext and it is currently in beta testing.
There are quite a few options when it comes to displaying content in the new GalleryNext app. As most gallery apps out there, GalleryNext displays your photos and videos as a vertically scrollable grid of thumbnails, but in the same time it allows you to choose which media sources to see from a left slide-out menu. In GalleryNext you can see content from Dropbox, Flickr, Picasa, Facebook, or just your Camera photos.
If you decide to join GalleryNext beta you will see that the gallery app needs a lot of polish as you will encounter a few bugs, but, in the same time some neat animations.
