Exclude certain folders from the Gallery App. Re-index the Gallery App at will.

>>Now works on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. It's a workaround to an Android OS bug. Anyhow, it works. If you want to show your appreciation, you might want to consider purchasing the donate version<<

Donate version now available. No ads.

Now all folders should be browsable. That includes external sd cards on some devices (such as Samsung Galaxy S/Vibrant/Captivate etc.)


>>There seems to be a bug on certain devices/OS versions. Find out on Use the app at your own risk <<

Here's why:
Many apps create folders on the sd-card and drop their stuff there. Often, they place images as well. Now that Android checks the sd-card for new media from time to time, these folders will be added to the media database and displayed in the stock Gallery app.

Here's how:
Gallery Excluder lists all direct subdirectories of '/sdcard' respectively '/mnt/sdcard' and displays them in a list. If an item/directory gets checked a '.nomedia' file is placed in that directory. If the directory gets unchecked the '.nomedia' file is removed.
Since it can take a while to have the gallery update you can also force a manual update via options menu.

When excluding a folder, all media in that folder (e.g. photos, music, videos) will be excluded from some apps. The stock music player, for example, will not find music in any folder you chose to exclude. If you've excluded a folder that contains media for another app, simply uncheck that folder and your media will return. However, some music players like Poweramp will still see your music. Give it a shot.
Some people report that this app is not working on their devices, e.g. Motorola Atrix and Defy (I'm afraid this is a general Motoblur issue that kicks in for most Motorola devices) and some custom roms. Since I only have a single device to test with I cannot say anything about it. However, if you provide some detailed information I can try to fix it. Thank you.

What are the permissions for?
- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Required to place a file in selected directories
- INTERNET: Display of AdMob ads
- ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: AdMob needs to figure if there is an internet connection

Found bugs?
- If you encounter any glitches, drop me an email instead of voting down. I'll try to fix it.
