Bug Description

When we select the application and press "More Info" button we can get information about the app. A lot of applications have more than one images uploaded by developers. And it's very inconvenient if you want to zoom these images and view them. You have to select one image, zoom it (appears a window), then close the window, select next image, zoom it, etc.

I think, it would be nice to add "arrow" button on the current image, so when you hover over image the "arrow" button appears and for viewing the next image you just need to press this button.

Thank you in advance.

Good idea, thanks Vahan. Perhaps the navigation should go above/below the screenshots, rather than over top, so that it's not interfering with the images at all.

Thanks for comment Matthew. I agree with your suggestion and I think it can make viewing of images in USC more comfortable.

I have submitted this idea at . But then I thought that this issue can also be defined as a usability bug, that's why I also filed a bug report at Launchpad.
