I can't pin down how / why / when it starts happening but my Android applications will randomly lose the ability to see photos I have taken recently on my Sony Xperia. Stopping / restarting Android support makes the applications start seeing all my photos again.

Happens to me every time when taking Xperia Screenshots, with Android App open, will not show new image.

Android becomes the most popular in technologies of cell phones because it contains too many new features. Different peoples can manipulate http://bestwritingclues.com/ to download the latest and new version applications for their android mobiles. Anti viruses play an important role to remove errors in your device.

Also happens on my Sailfish X, it's quite annoying when you want to share new picture in Android chat apps, unless restart AD.

The issue seem to be AD doesn't detect new items in Sailfish media folders instantly.

My workaround is using Android apps to take picture, I'm using CameraMX and new pictures will be shown in AD immediately. (And often the pictures quality is batter than taken with native camera app!)

Hope that helps, also hope Jolla can solve this issue in their next release.

CameraMX is not compatible with Sailfish X, cant install . I tried with many stores, same result.

How did u installed it?

That's strange. I downloaded directly from Google play, no issues with installation at all...

You can use the Android Share-UI plugin from OpenRepos to work around this - then you can use the normal share UI and share from it directly to Android applications. That way you can get around Android not seeing the pictures directly.

Better is to install the Swiss knife coderus AlienDalviControl for sharing something.
