As a 0.1 release, there are obviously some bugs. Performance is dependent on the client machine; everything runs smoothly on my workstation, but the effects are a little jumpy on my laptop and downright ugly on my iPhone (poor 620mhz ARM processor). Larger photo albums also degrade performance. There’s a known bug where some Flickr accounts aren’t getting loaded properly, possibly due to spaces in the username. In future versions, I’d like to add Picasa support, more options for navigating through photos (keyboard, slider, etc), and integration with Adam Tacy’s gwt-fx effects library. I’d also like to angle the images & add reflections to make it more like Cover Flow, but I’m a little worried about hurting performance.
UPDATE: Whoops, we forgot to give this entry a title. Comments now work.
