When copying files, Android does not keep the original creation date. This generally doesn't matter, except for photos and videos as it completely disrupts the gallery.
Fortunately, it is generally possible to recover the creation date and thus restore the gallery display order. This is what this app does automatically.
The free version allows you to process 50 images or videos to allow you to verify that this application meets your needs. The files can be selected individually or by folder if you do not want to correct your entire gallery.
Not all versions of Android have the same possibilities or limitations. Therefore, the features offered by the application vary depending on your Android version. See notes below.
For a small fee, you can purchase the full version which allows you to fix an unlimited number of files.
Before Android 5 (Lollipop)
The application can process all the kinds of images and videos. It corrects the MediaStore database so that images and videos are correctly displayed in the gallery. However, the application does not touch the files, and in particular does not change their date and does not modify the EXIF data.
Android 5 (Lollipop) to Android 7 (Nougat)
The application can repair the gallery for all types of images and videos.
Here it is possible to save the date in EXIF data for certain file formats. Indeed, if Android generally knows how to read this data, on the other hand, it can only write it for JPG, PNG and WebP files. This option must be activated in the menu as this increases the processing time.
Unfortunately, for these versions of Android, it is still not possible to change the date of the files.
Android 8 (Oreo) and 9 (Pie)
The modification of the date of the files finally works. It is possible for these versions to modify the date of the files! This option must be activated in the menu.
The MediaStore has become read-only. It is therefore no longer possible to update it directly.
The only possibility is to write the EXIF data to the files. Unfortunately, only JPG, PNG and WepB files support writing EXIF attributes. The bad news is that the app can't process videos.
Thus, for Android 10, the application can only reclassify JPG, PNG and WebP images! Thanks WHO ?
