Gallery Blocker

Gallery Blocker


Gallery Blocker blocks directories and media files(image, video, etc) from the Gallery app,

JUST SELECT AND SEND FILES, you can block them easily.

If you block a directory, the files in the directory will be NEVER deleted at MediaScan.
(When you delete a media file entry from MediaStore at MediaScan or by using ContentResolver, MediaStore deletes the media file with a triger.So if you create .nomedia file in a directory, MediaScanner will delete both media file entries and entities.
Gallery Blocker never deletes file entities and blocks them safely from Gallery.)

Features
- create and delete .nomedia file in a directory
- automatically block not to register media files to MediaStore again
- show hidden files (files in a hidden directory) with Gallery
- block music files from the Music app.
- block media files even if added directly into MediaStore with ContentResolver
- block parent directory directly via other app

Recent changes:
v1.1.1
- Add skip confirmation option.
- New feature: Parent directory direct Block.

v1.1.0

- Add images for Honeycomb.

Just installed, but works. Brilliant. EDIT: Nex7 cannot block multiple directories, folder unblocks itself randomly, folder unblocks after pics placed in folder (does not block new nor does reblocking dir work). Hero to zero. Do not waste your time (Nex7). Most reviews below look bought to me incidentally. No love.
