Eira is a simple full screen image viewer that preloads pictures to make flicking between images super fast.

It does clever things behind the scenes to make flicking through a collection of images as quick, seamless and as distraction free as possible.

What's New

Version 1.0.1:
  • Some people have been having problems automatically checking for updates, so while I look for a proper solution, this version removes automatic updating. You can, and I would encourage you to still check for updates via Eira's application menu.


Mac OS X 10.5 or later

This application really does only one thing: view images in full screen mode only. Besides rotating the image by 90° there are exactly no features to be found, no zooming, no copy/move/delete... even the image information is limited to file name, image size and file size.
There are so many (full-featured) image viewers available which cover Eira's functionality completely (except, perhaps, the support of the Apple Remote - it's of no interest to me so I didn't bother to look for it yet) and are equally easy to use... I'm still not entirely sure if Eira is at all useful at the moment.

Furthermore Eira crashes
- everytime the "check for updated automatically?"-dialog appears (quite often)
- when I try to open the preferences via menu or hotkey - I still don't know what I can change here...
- sometimes when I switch to another application and back

Given the lack of features and the stability issues I would rather think of it as an alpha version than a proper release. And the "promise" on the developer's website, that "v1 is free, v2 will have a hybrid license" does not really encourage me to look into the development of this software any further.
