About this app

ℹ️※ What can it do?
📁1. Create ".nomedia" file in the containing directory signaling the media scanner to ignore media, so as to hiding useless and redundant media file(image/photo, music, video) in Gallery, Music Player, Video Player and other APP base on media store.
🔍2. Use as a media scanner, find out all the media file(image/photo, music, video) on your device, and update to the media store, so you can view the media file in Gallery, Music Player, Video Player and other APP base on media store.

ℹ️※ What is this:
This APP can help you to create or remove a file called .nomedia in a
folder contains media files easily. And refresh MediaStore immediately!
ℹ️※ What is a .nomedia file?
.nomedia file signaling the media scanner to ignore media in the containing directory and its subdirectories. This prevents media scanner from reading your media files(image, video, audio) and providing them to other apps(Gallery, Music Player, Video Player etc.) through the MediaStore content provider.

If you want to scan all the photo/image/music/video on your device;
If the Gallery, Media Player always load some pictures, videos or audios which you do think are useless, redundant.
Then this APP may be what you need.

📌Note:
The main purpose of this app is let the junk media files(which we do think) don't show in some APP(such as the Gallery, Play Music) based on MediaStore. It is not a tool to hide files and protect your privacy, as files may be show in file manager APPs.

ℹ️※ How to use:
1. The application will scan picture, video, audio files from the MediaStore and file system, and then categorizes them by folder.
2. When a folder is set to "ON," means that media files in this folder will NOT be scanned by MediaStore, otherwise will be scanned.
3. In the list view, click the folder preview to view folder detail.
4. In the grid view, click the file preview can play the media file.

⚠️ Warning: This APP may NOT work on SOME devices. It may cause files to be deleted automatically on SOME Samsung devices. Anyway you can try it out. It's a good idea to try it on unimportant folders/files firstly.

(4.4.6) It works the way that it says it will,so good job on that. However, I have a request for a new function. My request is that you add the option to FIND & DELETE ".nomedia" files. My problem is that in Android 11, the "Pictures" folder (probably) already has a ".nomedia" file, but even though I have used several different file explorers & have turned on "Show hidden files" in them, I can't find it to delete it. That file prevents making screenshots, so I need to delete it.

Having ads in the free version is fine. I have no issues with that. But you need to offer an ad free paid version otherwise it's just a really anoying app. I would have paid for a adless full version, but that's not an option so. I ended up making my a .nomedia file and copying it manually where I wanted it to do the trick. Bad user experience overall

Not terrible and does something not many apps do, but has a lot of hitches: randomly scrolls back to the top in long lists, have to grant permission to same folder five times, and in bigger folders with many subfolders (like my music folder where I'm trying to hide 400+ artworks from gallery) it just straight up won't work and doesn't say why. Refreshes media store between every .nomedia application, annoying if you are trying to do many folders as each one takes about 5 minutes. Many ads.

If you authorize a folder, all of its subfolders will have permissions.
