CNET Editors' review
Tablets and smartphones can make great digital photo frames on the fly. Social Frame Free HD Slideshow will craft a nifty slideshow of all the photos of you and your friends on Facebook and Twitter. Social Frame works well enough, but doesn't give you enough control of your slideshow. You can't do much with it once it's created.
The slideshow has to physically sync each of the pictures you want it to display individually. If you choose more than a dozen or so photos this takes a very long time and does a number on your phone or tablet. You can't really do anything with it while it's syncing. Once everything is loaded, Social Frame Free HD Slideshow displays photos quite nicely -- save for the ads that take $4 to remove. The app even lets you change your slideshow's timing and sequences. However, the slideshow itself is stuck inside of Social Frame. There's no option to download it or make it your wallpaper. You can share it on social media, though. You can also view your social media feeds and post status updates to Facebook and Twitter right from the app.
If you want to turn a tablet or smartphone into a digital photo frame, Social Frame Free HD Slideshow does it well enough. Though it can't use the photos on your gadget, it displays what photos it can use nicely. That means it's fine for people who mount their tablets, but anyone else won't find much use in this app.
Do you own a digital photo frame at home? You then understand how troublesome it is to update your new photos and wondered only if you could sync Facebook/Twitter photos more easily. Now you can do so with Social Frame. It automatically syncs all your photos. This is a great gift for your parents. From Facebook, simply add desired photo albums , and voila! you can now share photos of your lovely baby, surprise birthday events, fun trips, etc. You can do the same by sending photos to their Twitter. Also, great photos from 500px can be added to the slideshow. You can also display your tablet as a digital photo frame at work place. Show your co-workers your lovely family photos. When you need a break from work, update yourself with what your friends are up to by reading their Facebook/Twitter feeds. You wake up in the morning, Social Frame tells you the time, weather, and RSS feeds to get you updated with the happenings around the world.

My parents love to see photos of their sons and grand children. I bought them digital photo frame before but it was no good because they couldn't update any new photos.
This time I bought a no name Chinese Android tablet that's under $100 with this app. It automatically downloads photos from Facebook/Twitter. So whenever I upload any photos to my album, my parents can see them in their Tablet/Digital photo frame.
