vzMediaScan App Icon

Originally I planned to make version 4.0.0 which include scanning progress, but because of the new Monster Hunter game Monster Hunter World on PS4, I got zero time working on the app lol

As the Chinese New Year holiday is coming to the end and I don’t foresee I got a lot of time to work on it again, I got to release my current work which includes fixes and debug logging at this moment.

 

Anyway you can get the latest version of the app from Google Play below.

vzMediaScan 3.1.3 Published!

After further investigation, finally identified from the log that my app was killed by Android itself because the Android built-in process which my app used was crashed.

To resolve this, just need to request Android to restart my app when it is being killed. This will make the scan longer but at least the scan will at the end finish.

The scan notification which didn’t go away after the app is killed is probably another issue which hopefully can be solved…

vzMediaScan 3.1.2 Published!

After a few days of trying my own app, I noticed that the timestamp on the notification is gone. Checked the official document and found that they changed the default behavior. So this version only merely to add the timestamp back. Nothing special.

vzMediaScan 3.1.1 Published!

Unfortunately my Nexus 5X was dead because of the infamous bootloop in Nexus 5X, LG G4, LG V10. That’s why I switched to a second hand Sony phone which gave me the chances to discover a bug in the app. Because of the phone switch, I also switched to another music player which uses the system playlist, and I found that after a media scan, all playlists will gone.

Life is so occupied that I got no time to work on it until the Christmas and New Year holiday. Still, there’s a lot area which I wanted to revise on my app but I just don’t have the time.

Another unfortunately is that I published a version 3.1.0 which is broken and there is no way to rollback. So an hour later I released another version 3.1.1. If you installed version 3.1.0, please upgrade it to version 3.1.1.

vzMediaScan 3.0.0 Published!

After 2.5 years, finally I am able to finish working on the new version. This is mainly to fix the problem introduced in Android 5.0 Lollipop that empty folder will turn into file after scan.

Others changes include support of runtime permission in Android 6.0 Marshmallow and also IDE change from Eclipse to Android Studio. Well but IDE change doesn’t affect the user anyway.

Finally I am able to squeeze some time working on the new version. The old trick doesn’t work on Android 4.4 KitKat due to security issue. I searched the web for some solution and insight and finally figured out the way myself. Anyway the app is working now on Android 4.4 KitKat and hopefully without any issues or bugs. If you find any, would be the best if you could report to me.

vzMediaScan 1.1.0 Published!

Last week my Nexus 4 finally received the OTA to upgrade to the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. It is great but for my apps on Play Store they just not that great with the new KitKat.

Android KitKat changed the system behavior due to security concern and as a result vzMediaScan will crash if you perform immediate media scan. Fixing the crash is easy but having the media scanning working again is another story. Anyway here is a new version which fixed the app crashing problem. I have also restricted the new version to Android 4.3 and below. I will have the app support Android 4.4 later on. Well but that’s gonna to be a long way.
