Sumsung Galaxy S4 gallery app freezing

When the Galaxy S4 gallery crashes, images look like they’ve loaded, but two parts of the interface load on top of each other and nothing works. See the grey bar behind the images? That’s the second gallery screen trying to load.

So we gave up on Samsung’s gallery app and went with a different one available for free: Gallery ICS.

This app is basically the app Google normally uses in Android Ice Cream Sandwich (version 4.0), and while the Galaxy S3 uses Android Jelly Bean (version 4.2), it works a treat here.

In fact, it not only doesn’t crash, but it also automatically rotates the image when we physically rotate our phone, something Samsung’s app forces you to hit a button for.

We know which one we’d prefer.
