        String selection = MediaStore.Images.Thumbnails.KIND + "="  + // Select only mini's
        MediaStore.Images.Thumbnails.MINI_KIND;

        Cursor cursor=managedQuery(MediaStore.Images.Thumbnails.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, null, selection, null, null);
       
        cursor.moveToFirst();
        gridAdapter gAdapter=new gridAdapter(getApplicationContext(), cursor);
        gridView.setAdapter(gAdapter);
    }
    
    class gridAdapter extends BaseAdapter{
    	Context context;
    	Cursor cursor;
    	LayoutInflater inflater;
    	public gridAdapter(Context context,Cursor cursor){

You are already using convertView, which is there for performance reasons.


In order to see where is the bottleneck you should add some output int the getView method - so you can see which part of the code takes up too much time. Since the method is very short, you could measure time for practicaly each sentence in the method.

Next thing you can do is test the application on a real device, to see how it performs. Or have you already done that? Performance on a emulator is drasticaly slower.

Thank you dejanpazin.

I immediately check time to execute  each line in code by adding some output.
But is there any other faster way to see all the images from gallery. Because I also test it on device but the scroll is not as smooth as default gallery in device.
If any other way to do same thing then please help me.

Thank You.

You have to find the bottleneck - the point where it takes too long to execute the code. After that, you can improve that piece of code.

Usually this things are solved by caching images, but then you have to take care of the memory.

I will try to find  bottleneck of my code and then improve it, and also try to caching images if necessary.

Thank you for help.
