Ive spent an hour trying a few other apps and websites, all of whom purport to specialize in the removal of exif metadata. None of them worked for me, at least not on my android. Then, I saw this one had high ratings and lots of previous downloads, so I gave it a shot. Nothing is as quick and easy as this one is at removing exif metadata. It lets you choose to delete exif metadata from the original or create a copy and drops it into a designated folder of your choosing. No learning curve. Bravo!

False positives on removal in every instance. I ran single files and batch folders. Followed up with the very same files in ExifPro (no I'm not affiliated, just downloaded it) and it found all the relevant data still there 100%. I was able to delete with exif and it tells you if there and errors or unsuccess and actually displays the data points in detail...or lack thereof. Uninstalling this.

Hi, if you are using the default settings, make sure you're checking the metadata-free copies instead of the original files – as by default the app will create copies with the metadata removed, instead of directly modifying (can be changed in settings), in "Pictures/Photo Metadata Remover" (directory can also be changed in settings).

Upate less than one month after stellar review for flawless performance: Photo Metadata Remover now repeatedly crashes, and stopped working. So disappointing, c'est la vie. Why does everything good become sucky garbage!? Uninstalling. (Was: Works simply, quickly and flawlessly so far. I've used it for over a month now, to remove metadata from individual image files with it set to make copy in another folder, and Photo Metadata Remover just works. The ads are not overbearing or unusual.)
