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.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
