Make Your Images Fully DCIM Compliant with DCIM Helper

If you take many photos with your device, you may have encountered some issues relating to DCIM compliance. This mainly affects the stock camera application on AOSP ROMs, but some OEM camera apps also suffer the same problem. The problem is that the stock camera does not follow the standard protocol for naming and storing images in a way that is consistent with the vast majority of digital cameras on the market. This can make it difficult to export your images to programs or other devices.

This issue prompted XDA Recognized Developer hrk to develop a simple application that automatically moves (or copies) captured images to the correct DCIM compliant location within the device’s file system, thereby fixing your DCIM blues. Your images should then be visible in other applications, while still being visible in the gallery app of your device. The app is described as “Hassle free, configure once and forget,” and includes a simple homescreen widget to allow toggle on / off at will.

The app should work on devices running Android 2.1 or above, and can be found in its application thread.

It has now been seen that Android M will receive a new app drawer as part of the stock launcher. The first four icons you will see in your drawer now will be automatically updated to represent your recently used applications. Whether or not this will be directly based on those apps seen in your recent apps menu or uses a combination of that and your most frequently used apps remains to be seen. Below this is the start of a standard...
