I'm working on an iPhone app that gives users access to image-heavy articles. We want to showcase the images--they're like the bread and butter of the app, so we're opting for a kind of scrolling thumbnail gallery within each story.
So my question is, what is the best way to handle this? Specifically:
Is it always preferable to show the text of an article? Would you ever want to make it appear only by a button, swipe, or other user action?
Where is the best place to put the article's image thumbnail gallery?
We're kind of arguing about it here at work and I'd like as many 3rd party views as are out there! Let me know if there is anything I can clarify.
