I just found a way to very quickly zip through all of the pictures in your photo album. I don't think this technique was something that Apple actually put on the phone but rather a qwerk in the software.

Go into your iPhones Photos app and then into an album that has lots of pictures (it's more fun to watch if you have lots of pictures).
Now tap on and bring up the very first picture.
Here's the tricky part: At the bottom of the screen put your finger on the arrow pointing to the right (the "Next Picture" arrow) and at the same time use a different finger to slide the picture's screen to the left and then take your finger off of the arrow key.
Your screen should slowly start advancing through your photos and then rapidly increase in speed until your pictures are flying by at a high rate of speed.
Once you master that you can even do it in reverse order starting at the last picture and zipping back to the first.

This has no use at all... but it's fun.:laugh2:

Ya know, that's going REALLY fast... when it happened to me, it went by a lot slower, but not slow enough to be a slideshow.

Of course, that could probably be accounted for by the beer.

That's very cool stuff.

Suppose if you had some time and inspiration on your hands, you could adjust the order of sets of pics to create little movie story lines and such. Hayesimus?

I was thinking the same thing. I was going to make a short "movie" by taking pictures of things, moving them slightly and then taking more pictures. After I'm done I'll do the high speed slide show and it should view like an animation. Sort of like how they make claymation videos.

Nice. Would be cool to share that but not sure how you'd achieve that ...

Well, flying through one of my wallpaper sets that has many color variations of each design.... that was rather impressive! I would show that off to someone....

i had a couple pics that were really similar but slightly changed (people moved a little) and when scrolling fast it looked like stop motion animation lol
