Ever copied images from one phone to another, or from an external storage or cloud provider to your phone and ended up with a messed up timeline in the gallery?
This happens because the file modification dates of your images will be set to the the date when you transfered your files to your phone
Here comes Image and Video Date Fixer to the rescue. It can read the captture date of images and videos from its EXIF metadata and sets that as file modifidation date using the Android File API.
In case your images do not contain EXIF Metadata, but contains the date in the filename, Image and Video Date Fixer can parse the filenames to extract the date from it and uses that to correct the file modified date.
The free version allows to process 100 files per batch.
If you want to process more files per batch you can buy the premium version via an in app purchase.
All files access:
Starting with the Android SDK Version 30, which will be enforced for apps this year, Image & Video Date Fixer needs a special permission called ‘All files access’. Without it the app would not work, because it needs raw file access to set the last modified dates on your files.
Due a bug in the Android Framework, fixing the file modification date will just work on Android 9 upwards. In some cases it might also work on Android 8 for some manufacturers.
