Firefox OS's gallery app lets you crop photos, apply some basic color filters, adjust contrast, and share photos with a system resembling Android's "intents." That lets you pick a variety of destinations registered to handle photos.

A long press on the home button invokes the task switcher. This view shows one rough edge on the experience: the horizontally oriented Cut the Rope app doesn't fit well in the vertically oriented thumbnail.
