Current set up: Media (audio) app and Gallery (video & photo) applications.

Could these two be combined into just one app called Media? One with great features to show and share content, including photos, videos and music (with cover art + playlists)

I like them separate. But I think Music would be a better name for the music player that is now called Media.

While discussing this redesign, I'd like to bring up this related awkwardness aswell: https://together.jolla.com/question/93843/gallery-camera-photo-roll-confusion/

personally i like them separate. the usage patterns of media (player) and gallery are different btw. documents is more similar to gallery then a music player

sounds like a lot of additional complexity to keep it in one app, and additional clicks to get to the content you want.

eg. app drawer > media > gallery > show photo

app drawer > media > music > songs > play song.

Unsure whether videos should stay in the gallery or go into media, the name makes me thing they should be in media, but they fit better with thumbnails in gallery

For easy acces i would even prefer a separate access to my videos.
