I’ve mentioned Phonegap several times on this site, and it is a great framework for those who already have a good understanding of HTML, CSS and Javascript allowing you to quickly create apps for the iOS app store.   The disadvantage is the difficulty in making the apps to look feel like native ones.

I’ve come across a very easy to use framework allowing you to quickly create a photo library that looks and responds like a native application.  The results are beautiful.  This library runs well on any Webkit browser so that means your photo library can work on Blackberry and Android devices.

What I think is really cool though about this photo library is the feature set.  Among other things it can automatically resize to any size of screen, respond to swipes, and changes in device orientation.

The library is Photoswipe from Code Computerlove and you can try out a demo here – it adjusts to desktop browsers too:

The Github for the project can be found here:

You can find the homepage with further info here:

Just in case you’re wondering what Phonegap is, you can find it here.

Photoswipe is definitel a very useful library if you want to make an image gallery that properly supports mobile devices fast – like maybe in a website for your apps.
