absolutely love the album app from Sony except one thing, it ignores the hell out of .nomedia

it'd be awesome if a developer can mod it to respect .nomedia files or exclude/hide folders like Quickpic does.

the pinch in/out to view photos in Sony Albums feature is too tough to pass up.

I'm sure many users will thank you!

.nomedia works fine for me. Not sure if it's because it's on the external sd.

I also installed Quickpic and used the "hide" function. As long as it is on internal sd it is working well

it seems to be working fine now after a data clear on media storage and albums.

heard about it ignoring again after a new picture is added so I shall keep track. so far a fresh picture taken doesn't affect it.

Don't need root for .nomedia just create the file. Might have to trigger the mediascanner again to get it to work.
Not sure what you mean about the ringtones. Do you have another folder on the external card with ringtones in it?

Not sure about that one, never used the app. If you add a .nomedia to the folder though, the app might no find it too.
