Is there a decent photos app alternative while we wait for MS to fix theirs?

Hi guys, the photos app on W10M is driving me crazy. I only see pics from the phone, not the SD card, and I only get reverse chronological sorting, no album / folder view option. I tried searching the store, but after trying five apps that turned out to be total cr*p I'm hoping someone has a tip.

I just want a way to browse to a folder on my SD card, and swipe through the pics in that folder in full screen. Seems kind of basic?! Are there any apps that do this?

Edit: for now I'm using Metro File Manager eX ($1.29). Works OK, except it keeps the filename and the app bar overlaid on the photos.
