Nexus Photo Viewer


Nexus Photo Viewer allows you to view the JPEG photos from a USB flash drive or SD card on your Nexus 7 (G1 and G2), Nexus 5, & Nexus 10, Galaxy Nexus, Xoom or other Android 4.0+ devices that do not support mounting external flash storage. Requires the following hardware. 1) A USB OTG Cable (Cost approximately $1-5 USD on Amazon), 2) A USB Flash Drive or USB SD Card Reader and SD Card. See screenshots for hardware examples.

Technical Notes:

-The Nexus 4 does not support OTG/USB Host and can not be supported.
-DOES NOT REQUIRE ROOT!
-The USB drive must be formatted as FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS. These are the most common formats for flash drives.
-Hard Drives.  It is strongly recommended that you use external power when connecting a hard drive to a tablet.  Please see the troubleshooting guide on my web site for more information.  Do not connect an unpowered hard drive to a phone!

Does as named no more As a keen photographer I often want to use my nexus 7 to view shots more clearly. This allows me to do that, but nothing else. It is shameful that Google have disabled usb functionality. I can plug cards directly into my old galaxy s2 without a hitch on this flagship device I have to buy software to make it work? It has also encouraged these guys to charge silly money for the full product, but thankfully the are alternatives turning up now.

OTG to Nexus 5 works Just wanted to be able to see photos from my Canon camera's SD card in the field on my Nexus 5 (kit kat v4.4.4) Best of all, it doesn't require rooting the phone, thanks to the dev!
