Integration of a real photo viewer and video streaming player! (HCL Connections App)

We use Connections not only as a collaboration platform but also as an intranet platform with ICEC.

Our users like Connections but there are two functions that are clearly missing in the HCL Connections app. :)

First: A REAL Photoviewer.

In order to be able to view photos in a folder, you have to download each photo completely. And this with every photo!

A much better solution would be if you can look at the photo in a photo viewer. And then you can simply look at the next or previous photo with a simple swipe to the right or left.

Second: A REAL Videostreaming Player

If I get a link to a video in Connections and open the link in the normal iPhone browser, I can directly stream the video. Perfect!

The situation is different in the HCL Connections app. Here the video is always downloaded completely before I can see the video. Why? Downloading a full 350MB video takes a long time. Streaming in a normal browser is easier than when I open the video in the app. It shouldn't be that way.
