In his amus­ingverg­ing-onun­hinged Google Play de­scrip­tion, the cre­ator of Fo­cus Go ex­plains that he doesn’t like “bloated gal­leries with 23,093,485 fea­tures, so I only built the ones I need/think are needed”. And so it is with this app, which is no­table only for all the things it doesn’t do. It seems odd to seize on such a bare­bones app that com­pletely shirks ‘in­no­va­tion’, but you don’t re­alise how much bloat weighs you down un­til it’s gone. Fo­cus Go sim­ply dis­plays your pho­tos in chrono­log­i­cal order, each month form­ing a new head­ing. There are three grid set­tings (ba­si­cally big, smaller and tiny), and that’s about all you need to know. It down­loads in sec­onds and there’s no need to sign in or sign up for any­thing. It’s a lit­tle slice of par­adise, in other words, and if you’re sick to death of press­ing through ad­vanced func­tion­al­ity you’ll never ever need, this is prob­a­bly among the best ways to look at im­ages on An­droid.
