+Francisco Franco,

Any chance there will ever be a file count beside the "folder" name? (Whatsapp images, for example).

Also, I noticed "WhatsApp videos" and videos recorded with my device are all shown in the same "folder". Is that on purpose? Because it feels messy. I think many would prefer videos separately in their own folders.. Maybe an option for that?

Other than that, your app is awesome. Congrats

+Francisco Franco  Just a quick suggestion. I switched over from Quickpic and bought the premium version, as I was always a fan of your kernel and the instant support I got when there was a problem. One thing I really miss is that in Quickpic, you could rotate a picture just by using two fingers and performing a rotation. With focus I have to tap 5 times if I want to rotate a picture to the left. It would be really nice if you could add an option to rotate pictures with the two-finger gesture. Thanks for all the hard work!

Focus 1.0.7 is OUT NOW

We worked hard on this one, listened to your feedback and made things even more awesome!

Specially now with QuickPic being tango down we give you even more reason to use Focus as your main Gallery app. We're also with a 30% sale until tomorrow!

Change-log
1 - Tags are now automatically written to your pictures metadata so you won't lose your organisation when you clear Focus data, wipe your phone or transfer pictures to other devices. This is retro-compatible with existing users tags and it's automagical;
2 - Added support for Rotation and Cropping
3 - You can now long press your tag/folder title to select all pictures inside it
4 - Performance improvements
5 - Fixed a bug when opening pictures
6 - Fixed a deletion bug inside tags

After so many requests, Rotation and Cropping are natively supported. Available on the next release, hopefully, tomorrow.

Sorry if you've mentioned me or asked me something in the last 24-48hrs, I took some time off during the weekend but I'll answer you all soon.

Don't forget Focus has a 30% sale until the 2nd of September.

I really love QuickPic just because it's quick and just simple. I'm not sure if I dig the tags but I'll give it another shot anyway. Any chance of a "easy/simple mode"? lol

Focus on a 30% SALE NOW

Download https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.franco.focus

We heard you, QuickPic is tango down, and you want to use Focus premium features. Starting NOW until September the 2nd Focus premium package is on SALE.

Couple features +Liam Spradlin and me are working on:

1 - Automatically write tags to metadata, so when you tag X or Y picture its information will be written to the EXIF information which will be saved regardless if you change, roms, send the picture to another device, clear Focus data, whatever. This feature is retro-compatible with existing users and it's all automatic without the need of user interaction;
2 - Improved performance on several layouts
3 - The Vault, where you can hide folders and pictures using the same passcode you use for the Snooping Lock feature
4 - Adding basic Cropping and Rotation, leaving more advanced editing features to existing apps (such as Snapseed)

There's more to come so now is a great time to Focus on all these premium things.

Make your pitchforks ready, I joined +Chris Lacy to talk about the iPhone 6, iOS and how we compare it with Android. Also you can make fun of me for mistaking a simple lockscreen interaction on Android.
And yes, it's harder than you think coming up with arguments speaking in your non-primary language ;)

Hope you enjoy this and share it with your friends.
