Tell Android to ignore folder contents
.nomediafile tells android to ignore folder contents
Tired of the contents of your android folders showing up in other applications?
For example, if you have an “audio-books” folder, you don’t want that appearing in your music app.
If you have a “spicy memes” folder, you don’t want that appearing in your photos app.
Android has a built in mechanism that tells the system “Hey, ignore the contents of this folder.” Simply browse into the folder (On your phone) and create an empty file, name that file
.nomedia. Thats it! Android will now ignore that folder.
