Reviews From google play store

Quite a decent App. 3 stars because it's just decent. The UI is not appealing, I was rather confused as to what I need to do to start the scan. And the scan speed could be faster. Typically took around 2 hours to finish scanning my 128Gb micro-SD card. Improve on these 2 points and I will give 5 stars.

Did the job, found music files that were recently added to a new sd card and updated the media storage, making them show up on my default music player (when it didn't before). Great app in that regard!

Indispensable for updating one's media library. If you add a lot of songs etc to your storage in one go, run this before you try to access the new files because your player etc may not find it - this is because android doesn't normally update the media library until you reboot... and even then it's hit and miss or not complete. This app solves the problem. Been using it for years.

Please sir, update this application to work nicely on PIE ROM VERSION 9.0, while scanning it take lot of time to scan. It is was working very good in 7.1.2. Not getting close after clicking scan option it should work in background after clicking scan. apps is taking lot of time to get open.

I'm sure that I would rate higher if I could find a tutorial for the app! I'm sorry, it's not self-explanatory to me as I'm new to operating this type of app. If it does what it says it's a wonderful app, though!

I love this app When i was using Android kitkat and lower version i used switchpro widget to scan media but from lollipop that doesn't work then i find this one using from years this is very great app since after nougat media storage is broken on every device it helps A lot JUST MAKE IT COMPATIBLE FOR PIE Add ADAPTIVE icons

works like a charm! eventhough the app error once but it could continue from the last progress.

Super simple. Needs minimum permissions to operate. Was able to restore my photos and music that i have removed from the library because i had mistakenly deleted "cache data" and "app data" from Media Storage and External Storage. My files were still there but Google Play Music and my Photo app were not seeing them

Sad to see unless i misread, this wasnt working for a few users, but can glady say it worked for me (Droid Moto Z Play, Android 8) ! It did however mess with all my notification sounds, but a minor issue that can be easily fixed myself then the idiotic issue this was resloving that Android has had for AGES. Especially since all my methods of fixing it stopped working. Really easy to use until you may need to hit up the advanced options if it doesnt for you, which wasn't my case.

Simple to use, effective and reliable. No annoying adverts nor unwanted or unnecessary features. Does exactly what it says it does!

Best App. i inserted memory card from my old Mobile Phone to new mobile(Android 9), but old pictures, songs etc were not visible in galary. i could only see them one by one using file manager. but after installing this app., i can see ALL my stuff in memory card. thanks for this useful app.

Perfect on my Huawei p9 lite with CRDrOid 7.1 And my Huawei Honor Play (8) + Asus Zenpad 3s10 (7)

Amazing app. Some apps don't properly register downloaded content with the media manager and this app fixes it right away!

Great app. It solve thhw problem with the music app on Huawei phones

Good tool. Helps with media scanner wakelock problem.

Useless or my device isnt compatible with the app. Already tap the MediaScan button and scanned but the photos and videos still not appeared in gallery. Now how im gonna download things if it not appear in gallery😭

Works on Android 8.1 but I had to clear all the data from media storage then run it after that. Now my media player shows the missing media that wasn't getting scanned.

I have no idea why the contents on my SD don't automatically refresh. But this app is a savior. Thanks Dev!

My Gallery was reading as empty. This App fixed problem immediately. Thanks.

work as intended, very nice. Fixed the issue of photo album not being able to recognize photos on external memory after updates.
