If you host your own photo gallery using either Piwigo or Gallery software and you happen to use an Android device, the ReGalAndroid app is right up your alley. Despite its spartan interface, this is a rather capable app that offers a few handy features. For starters, it supports the Piwigo and Gallery2 applications as well as the new Gallery3 release. The app supports full-screen viewing and it can cache data to speed up navigation. Using the available commands (press the Menu hardware button to access them), you can download a full-resolution version of the photo to your device as well as share the photo's link and the photo itself using your Android device's sharing capabilities.

ReGalAndroid also allows you to create new albums and upload photos from your Android device to an existing photo album in the remote gallery. You can also take a snapshot and upload it to the gallery directly from within the app. This way, you can use your photo gallery and ReGalAndroid combo as a mobile photo blogging solution.
