Exactly as described I'm a developer and I find it hard to believe that this app fails to work on any version of android or on any phone. The app doesn't actually do the scan itself, it tells android to do it. That is why it requires no special permissions. And the rating is not for what you want thte app to be or do its to let others know if it does what it says and if it does it well or not. That's why 5. Because this app does exactly what it says. And does it perfectly.
Does what it says, at least on Jelly Bean and below… Worked like a charm on my HTC Droid DNA when it had Jelly Bean, and made listening to daily podcasts on my phone a treat. We got the lovely KitKat update the other day and now this app no longer works. It force closes without doing anything. Bummer.
This app is amazing. It does exactly what it was designed to do and then terminates. Often it's so fast that if you blink you'll miss it, leading some people to think that this app doesn't do anything. Just to clarify to people, THIS APP DOES NOT AFFECT THE SPEED THAT YOUR PHONE SCANS FOR NEW MEDIA, it only starts the existing media scanner built into the android operating system that normally only starts by rebooting the phone.
Does the job nicely Works perfectly for me and ensured all the ringtones & notification tones I've added or modified become available for selection from the systems list again when personalising my phone. Could do with a progress bar in the app or the top bar so dropped it 1 star for that but other than that.... very happy. Thanks.
Excellent! I'm using BitTorrent Sync to sync my devices. The only problem I had so far was that I had to reboot all of my devices for the gallery to scan for new files. Thanks to your app all I need to do now is tap it's icon. The auto-close feature is great. Thank you!
Useful for older smartphones I love my Galaxy Note 2. And it works %99 since the day I bought it. But since it's final update to Kitkat (4.6.0), the media system fails to update when I download a new picture or video. Therefore, this app makes up for it.
v2.0 Small updates to UI
