Is there a way to view animated GIFs on an Android device? I searched the Market without success.
I use QuickPic and it has a rating of 4.7.
The Android browser will, but the image would have to be online somewhere. There's no way that I've found to open a local file in the browser. I suppose you could create an HTML file with the image and view it that way, but it seems a lot of hassle for little reward.
Navigating to the folder the gif file(s) are in with another browser besides the stock Android browser works for me.
E.G.: if your gifs are in the Downloads folder, Open Firefox, go to address bar, type in:
/storage/emulated/0/Download (it may auto-complete for you). You should get a basic
Index of: ... page from which you can click on the name of the gif.
I recommend making a bookmark of the page, for easier access in future.
You can view them in Firefox by typing in the gif folders destination.
file:///mnt/sdcard/(name of gif folder)/
It'll bring up the items in that folder as a list. Bookmark the page and store all your gifs in that folder. Firefox is the fastest gif player (that I know of).
You can use ES File Explorer. It provides a feature called ES Image Viewer which can load any GIF image, including animated GIFs.
Where to find it:
"ES Image Browser" is the only one in the above list that plays animated GIFs (I also have jrummy's Root Browser installed).
Why don't you try Animated Gif Player?
Navigate to the location where the gif files are in Astro and open using Astro File manager. Tried on Jelly Beans.
I had this issue and couldnt find a quick fix in google. Played around and found that Andriod compresses images when sending MMS, so it breaks the GIF. But, if your GIF is under about 1MB, it will send. Iphone will auto play, andriod you have to click. the biggest one i tested was 666KB.
Your welcome internet
The only app I've got that is able to run .gif files is Fast Image Viewer Free.
