Extended functionality - MediaPlugin - Especially on Android

N_BauaN_Baua INMember ✭✭✭✭✭

Hi guys,

I know the MediaPlugin for XF is the best option so far available for picking up images from the Gallery and storing the Camera images on the device (Kudos to James Montemagno).

However I would like some insights on the following things especially for Android: If you know any better library/plug-in.

  • Need Allow Edit (or cropping at least I know the MediaPlugin does not support it on Android)
  • Need multiple-image selection - Limit it to max n number paramter.
  • Image Previews with before/after editing.
  • Option to save as a Base64 string - low priority
  • Some level of customization - theme etc

Do you know any such implementation which works XF way? ...Need for both Android (far most required) and iPhone.


Any ideas/thoughts/sample projects/customization done please share or suggest.

N Baua
