You could remove the start.sh and the bin directory by setting the action in the menu.json to:
Code:
"/usr/bin/lipc-set-prop com.lab126.appmgrd start app://com.lab126.booklet.imageviewer"
And you forgot to mention that this only LAUNCHES the imageviewer app which is written by lab126 (amazon).

It's a bit over-hyped, what with the website and all

After I installed your new launcher menu add on using the instructions above, I had to restart three times before it finally showed up in the launcher menu. ???

Touching the top of the screen gets you a settings menu with no launcher menu. Is there a way to navigate back to the list of photos without needing to start over at the home menu?

Yes, it is a lot simpler to call built-in apps directly from the menu.

But still, thanks for the effort starsy. It is a good place to start. I gave you 500 karma points to encourage more from you.

I was thinking the same thing...is there a way to move from one image to the next/previous without going back to the image list?

I wonder which Firmware version will this be an official feature in. It doesn't seem to be just an app, more like another mode of the home screen. Well, I hope they don't come up with a DRM for the png format too

I may not be the first person realizing this, but if you put the images in a subfolder of /mnt/us/images, it will be treated as a book i.e the folder will show up as a single item, and when clicked the first image will be opened and you can scroll by using the "easy reach tap zones". The images will be scrolled in alphabetical order.

That is good to know. On the K4, I put my PNG files that I wanted in a collection into a ZIP file. On the K4, each file in /mnt/us/images seems to be in a collection by itself with no scrolling. The subfolder should help a lot. Your discovery makes this a lot more useful. Thanks.

It is always a lot easier to find what you are NOT looking for, isn't it?

Thanks a lot!!
I tried it but it isn't really what I'm looking for.
It doesn't have the possibility to add bookmarks, to jump to a page or to zoom the image...
I hope they fix it in the next firmware!

I just found out that there is a new collection on my home screen called images which takes me to the images screen when taped. I wonder when that came on?

I just checked, and mine has the images folder too. Clicking an image file displays it, so the launchpad add-on is redundant and is not needed.

Interesting -- and I thought that they removed that feature. I guess I need to RTFM here...

What we need is a simple and reliable way to trigger the collection of photos to get indexed without waiting overnight for it to get around to doing that on its own.

UPDATE: When viewing an image after tapping an image file in the images folder, you can navigate to another image by touching the top of the screen to see the menu, then the back button (left arrow) to go back to the list of image files.

And if you have a subfolder with a collection of pics in the image folder, as already described as well, you can "tap through" the collection of pics in this folder like a book.

I see that putting the images in a .zip file still works like on the K4 as well.

My /mnt/us/images folder contains "pics.zip", and that zip file shows up in my documents with a "44 items" comment.

Clicking the zip file shows my pictures (about 20 seconds to open my zip file with 44 photos), and I can tap through the collection. I do not need a subfolder.

That means that we can view comic book files by renaming them from *.cbz to *.zip.

Although zip-file collections may be easier to put on the kindle, subfolders are probably faster to access, but zip-renamed comic books are probably easier to keep organized by keeping them zipped, and just live with the slow initial loading of the picture viewer when it is used with zip files.
