Just download the pp lokpixlite. Its free
so i was trying to find a way to hide videos more than photos, but I've confirmed that my method works for both. This will make them easily viewed and sent, but will not appear in the gallery. All you'll need is Astro downloaded and pick two fake file extentions, one for video and one for photos...I used non for video and hah for pictures, and reference them as below.
1. create a folder through Astro (or when connected to your computer) named whatever you want. Mine is simply named Videos.
2. Within Astro, go to the preferences, and click edit file extentions. Add two new extentions, First one, for videos, would be non and the mime type is video. The second would be hah and mime type image. Leave subtype blank.
3. move all your photos/videos into that folder (if theres more than a couple, easier to use your computer for step 3 and 4)
4. Rename all photos with the .hah extension and videos with the .non.
They will not appear in gallery, but can easily be accessed within Astro. This will actually hide the pictures and videos from most non droid users even if they are computer smart. If you're worried more, than do the hide folder trick in Astro right before you hand over the phone.
hope this helps others hide there "naughty files" =)
File cover has a free version that does the trick.
Folks, be careful with the .nomedia tag. There's talk in the Android dev forums that it can cause the phone to delete media files in the affected directories, not just ignore them. This affects all versions of Android up to and including 2.0.1.
The general consensus is that you have to create .nomedia before you start moving files into the directory to avoid the auto-delete behavior.
Send them over to me and I will show you how to hide them.
picture safe is good but only lets you email "private photos" , you can send them as MMS....
sorry CANNOT send them as MMS
An easier way to hide those "clothing challenged" pics and vids is to rename the folders they're in to .1* * being the name that you give the folder.
ok yes astor works for hiding the pics, but you cant attach them thru email or handscent, you have to go thru astro then find the pic then send...any suggestions?
You beat me to it! lol:icon_ banana:
I never hand my phone over...no problem
Photo and Video safe both have access to SD card and full internet. If thats the case can they see your pics / vids?
