Piwigo Next Generation (for Android)

An android application for managing and uploading images to Piwigo servers.

This app is under development by the Piwigo android team. The goal is to close the gap with the IOS Piwigo application while keeping in mind the priority of the features like the upload, and the ability to select multiple images at a time or to take photos directly from the app to upload them.

All features are not enabled and will be implemented when needed.
