@cheesus: providing cloud integrations via separate plugins has the advantage to keep the required permissions of F-Stop at a minimum. So, users do not have to trust the developers of F-Stop to not stealing data, they just can SEE, there is not even a technical possibility to do this… if the original F-Stop e.g. does not use cloud connections or network access but only plugins do this. And if I do not use the plugins, I explicitly know, my data is save.
BTW: F-Stop at the moment in fact HAS access to the SD card and full network access… so I cannot control what it probably is doing with my data…. it could send it to everywhere in the internet.
When thinking about all these nice “cloudy” connections I want to push focus on the drawbacks of this connectivity:
a lot of users are moving away from app like “QuickPic” and come to F-Stop… just exactly for this reason – because F-Stop does NOT use cloud connections so far.
So, to please both parties (the cloud lovers and the cloud dislikers) I suggest to implement cloud support as optional plugins that poeple CAN install, but do not have to if they dont want cloud support.
This could e.g. work like in other apps (see e.g. Total Commander and its related plugins for different cloud connections: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ghisler.android.TotalCommander)
Agreed…. I experienced the same behavior.. and even more, I experienced that fstop was freezed in displaying the progress bar. With a file manager I saw that the movie file was already moved completely, while fstop still displayed a progress bar (without any progress by the way). Even a click on the return button did not remove the progress bar… I had to restart fstop
