This app aims to rename your photographs and movies in order that the filenames start with the date of recording. That method, you'll be able to all the time kind your recordsdata chronologically, regardless of recording device and even after they've been duplicated or modified.


If you wish to view your photos and movies in a chronological order inside a gallery app, sorting by filename usually does not work since picture filenames start with IMG_ or PANO_ and videos with VID_ or MOV_ (depending on your device). Panoramas and videos might be shown final.

Sorting by EXIF date taken doesn't work both since videos do not include EXIF knowledge. They shall be proven final (or first).

Sorting by filesystem's date modified normally works fantastic on the original system. But when you copy your recordsdata to another gadget, the date of copy will be the new date modified, which disrupts the unique chronological order of the files.

For these reasons, it makes good sense to rename your photographs and videos with this app earlier than transferring them to another gadget (smartphone, tablet or PC), so that every one filenames begin with the date taken.
