fancyBox is a nicely animated modern lightbox
Highly optimized for touch, it brings great performance for mobile devices.
fancyBox is a 100% mobile optimized lightbox with touch swipe gestures to navigate between or pinch zoom images. fancyBox is a high-performance lightweight lightbox solution that is very easy to use for visitors. The inteface is familiar for mobile device users as it looks just like a native app. It has everything a modern lightbox should have, such as unobtrusive arrows, nice animations and two captions.
fancyBox is bundled with modification. It has one minimal style, appealing to those who are looking for a no frame look. It lacks social sharing. On the other hand, it’s a solution that covers all devices because it’s responsive. Its settings for users are exposed in the WordPress Gallery Extra admin area for easy access.
