Are there any plans to improve the grid view for tablets?


#1

Currently, around ⅔ of the available space is wasted on tablets.

On my tablet, the grid view looks like this:

Landscape mode

Portrait mode


#2

There is https://github.com/nextcloud/android/issues/912 and https://github.com/nextcloud/android/issues/1742 so there have been discussions in the past but it is not a priority of any developer at the moment.


#3

and well… your own issue :wink:


#4

I’m talking about the grid view of pictures only.

Can’t you make a grid view for a pure picture folder?

In my opinion, that would be quickly and easy to realize, isn’t it?


#5

It actually would be rather complicated and tricky. Since we would have to handle this completely different within showing file lists that have a 2-pane layout on tablets. It really is hard to achive imho :frowning:


#6

Is there an alternative app for just displaying photos out of Nextcloud?


#7

LMGTFY, there is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.linfaservice.cloudgallery but I can’t say if that’ll fit your requirements


#8

That app does not work.

It worked when I tested it briefly.
