Smart Photo Frame Android app showcases your digital albums

by Kate Currin

The free Smart Photo Frame app for Android transforms your smartphone into a digital photo frame. Select your favorite photos in the menu of the app to get started. Then you have the option of adding a clock, big or small. Choose how fast the photos transition –fast, normal or slow. Add a photo-shoot date display, and even a battery-level indicator to your digital photo frame.

Don't worry about missing your SMS messages. Messages are displayed on arrival, even when the Smart Photo Frame app is running.

The free app does have an annoying advertisement, but if you click on it, it goes away. But, you have to click on it every time you open the app to make it disappear. Yet, I guess that's a small annoyance for a free photo frame app.

I love to open this app, select photos from my recent travels, and prop my Android phone up on my desk at work when I'm feeling claustrophobic. Or for the holidays, I'll fill it with photos of holidays past, and place it on a branch of my Christmas tree to share with family members – instant digital photo frame ornament, free!
