Very handy timesaver. Must remember to re-boot when making changes though (on my Galaxy S anyway); seems to scan for music on startup and cache.

快速地在選定資料夾中放置 .nomedia 文件,讓android認為資料夾裡沒有媒體檔。然後android的bug就會把那資料夾裡的圖片吃光吃光吃光……我照了快一年份的照片就這麼全沒了。

This app was great for getting the BS out of my Media folders... Free is REALLY good too. :)

Outstanding! I've been generating my own ringtones and notifications from MP3s I transferred over to my external SD card. The media scanner was picking them up and displaying them in the media player list. This app allowed me to flag the internal /media location (where rings are stored) as no media and they immediately disappeared from my file listing in the player! Simple, effective and free.

Did not do what it said I know for a fact that there are folders full of countless .nomedia files on my phone and this app did not detect them at all.

Works! I used the app to stop the scanning of my folders that had ringtones, notifications, etc. Got a bit frustrating when they kept appearing even after I used the app. But...patience is a virtue. A few minutes later...poof! Those unwanted folders no longer appeared in my Music Player. With patience, this app worked like a charm and did exactly what I wanted it to do. (:
