Phiewer - The standard media viewer for Mac.
Phiewer is the easiest and fastest way to view your images, videos and even audio files. It's folder based so you can just browse your media in one window without any extra clicking and selecting...

*** Fast and Responsive User Interface ***
It's incredibly fast and responsive, your media fits fluidly right into your viewport, of course also in fullscreen mode.

*** Quick Controls ***
A simple controls panel and lots of shortcuts for browsing, rotating, play/pause, toggle fullscreen, toggle info panel and much more is built right in. And hey, it's also possible to rotate videos.

*** File Information / Exif Data Viewer ***
For any of your media you can toggle the info panel to see detailed information and Exif data for example. Phiewer also displays most common RAW camera image formats.

*** Multimedia Slideshow ***
Just hit the Slideshow play button to view your media folders automated with nice transition effects and background music. You can set the interval speed of each slide, choose transition effects and select your music from really cool handpicked background tracks. There is also the possibility to select your own music from your hard drive.
Setting the Slideshow to loop and you will have endless running Memories. You can even play videos and audio mixed within your Slideshow and the music gets automatically dimmed or muted for a nice Media Center like entertainment experience.

*** Stunning Effects ***
Backdrop ambience is a stunning viewing effect. It turns the whole interface background into a blurred ambience like you may have seen in lots of videos on the web.

*** And the Best... *** even plays animated gifs, YEAH! :-)

Generally broken

The app frequently and easily soft-crashes to a blank window, rendering it unusable until you quit and reopen the app. Even just changing the window size can do this.

Good app for slideshow

This is a good free app to do a slideshow. It would be nice to have the ability to hide the window border, but that's not essential.
One strange UI decision is to use the option and control keys to toggle the sidebar and backdrop ambiance. It is unconventional and can be triggered easily by mistake.
The design of the main menu is ... lazy. For a modern app, "Sidebar (on|off)" is not a proper title of a menu item. The items should either change their texts according to the state or use a mark char along with "Show sidebar". Assigning hotkeys and showing them in the menu are also good UI practices.

NO .RW2 Support for Panasonic RAW

As the title saws, this app doesn't support .RW2 RAW files from Panasonic cameras. How hard is it to ACTUALLY support the handful of RAW formats? Seriously. You have one job and can't even do that well.
