- Retaining of the photo's aspect ratio (never improperly stretches or cuts off any part of it)
- Customizable photo frame of any color you like
- Slideshow of all photos in a directory (customizable photo update interval: every 10 seconds, every minute, every hour, every day, etc.)
- Built-in photo cropping and rotating

How to use:

This is a widget for your homescreen (desktop). To use it, please follow these simple steps.

For newer versions of Android (e.g. 4.0), you may drag and drop a Nice Simple Photo item from the Widgets tab of your app list to the home screen. You may refer to this demonstration video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXAWx7gsJ-o

For older versions (e.g. 2.3.3) you can long press (i.e. tap and hold) on any empty space on your home screen, then select Widgets and choose a Nice Simple Photo item.

Different items correspond to different widget sizes.

Tapping the widget will open the configuration screen. You can configure the widget and browse the photos which are in the same directory of the currently selected photo there. You can add more than one "Nice Simple Photo Widget" to your home screen and each of them can have its own unique appearance settings.
 
*NOTE* If the photo does not update properly, please exclude this widget from any task killer app that you might be using. You can also try to remove this widget from your homescreen and add it back again, and see if it solves the problem.

Just the job! Looking to have my photos rotating- this was the second widget I tried and was far superior than the first!

Nice but missing one feature Need to be able to click on edge of photo to scroll through directory. Would give five stars otherwise.

Best! Can't believe that most picture frame apps take Megabytes of space, and have SO MANY troubles to display a simple, resizeable widget… Unlike others, this app has cropping and rotation options; Unlike others, this app lets you choose whether the picture has a frame or not, and is customizable; Unlike others, when you resize the widget, the picture keeps its aspect ratio, it isn't stretched awkwardly to fit the space… Great app here

Doesn't work on note4 And begins with verbose (not nice and simple) instructions

Rarely works When I want to apply pic, only about 10% of the time does the pic actually apply to the widget, and I know how to do it, as sometimes it works, it's simple.
