I know you are just like me – before you could get your hands on the Evo, you talked to all of your Droid and Nexus One tottin’ friends and played with their phones. Â Then you saw the amazing GalleryÂ integrationÂ with Picasa and thought – that is EXACTLY what I need to keep my photos backed up from my phone.
Then you got the Evo – and the honeymoon started… but the second you opened the Gallery – the honeymoon wasn’t over, but certainly not as nice as you expected. Â No worries, right? Â A quick trip to the Market and there must be an app or upgrade or something, right? Â Sadly – Nope.
How are you ever going to get that Picasa goodness on your phone? Â Not to mention the 3D style of the albums that is pretty awesome too. Â You could do what I did and search the internet for hours (in fact, you may already have, which is how you ended up here)… But I’m not going to tell you I got it working without giving you the apk file!
You can get it here – Gallery 3D.apk but here is a word of caution – the first time it opens, it takes forever to load. Â You may get a force close error message – open it again and don’t fret. Â The camera button in the top right hand corner of the app will give you an error (see screenshot below)
UPDATE: What’s that? You DON’T want Picasa albums – just the cool 3D gallery features for your pictures on the phone? Â If that’s the case – you don’t have to install this apk with all its buggyness – you can get the same 3D gallery effect by installing the 3D Gallery plug in for the “Flikie Wallpapers” app. Â Both the plug in and the wallpaper apps are available in the Market, work well on the Evo and do not have the Force Close error message pictures above. Â You also get the added benefit of a great way to find and download new wallpapers. Â For me – not having Picasa is a dealbreaker. Â But if Picasa isn’t your thing, here is a link: Â http://www.androidzoom.com/android_applications/tools/n1-3d-gallery-addon_hosl.html
I got the apk from the xda forum here (requires a logon):
