WidePhotoViewer is a photo viewer that's "wide" in two senses:
Accessing your own photos and those of your contacts or friends is quick. You can add photographers, groups, sets/albums/galleries, and SmugMug sharegroups to the main QuickList to make accessing them quick, too, even if they're not contacts or you're not a member of the group.
There's a powerful Flickr explore menu for Interestingness, Recent from Everyone, Getty, Commons, and Galleries. And, you can search for photos and groups by tag.
Some other notable features are:
You can view the sample photos or those publicly available on Flickr or SmugMug without logging in, and you can explore on Flickr, too. You also see your own photos and those of your contacts/friends if you do login. (Facebook always requires logging in.)
You can view photos as a slideshow, setting the time to your liking. You can also turn the info display (title, date, owner, description, comments, and EXIF) on and off.
WidePhotoViewer shows panoramic photos by filling the screen vertically so you can scroll side-to-side to pan the image. Only photos that aren't panoramic (less than 2:1) are scaled to fit on the screen, so WidePhotoViewer works well for normal photos, too.
To optimize photos for WidePhotoViewer, size them to a height of 768 pixels (assuming an iPad in landscape orientation), and let the width be what it will. Use a JPEG quality of no more than about 70% of its range.
Because the photos that WidePhotoViewer is intended to show may be large, it might take as long as several seconds to download each image, especially very wide panoramas. For example, one of the sample photos is 5046x768, greater than 6:1 (1.4MB JPEG; 11MB expanded).
To speed up displaying, WidePhotoViewer automatically prefetches photos, so in many cases there's no wait for downloading.
