It honestly felt so good releasing my first app to the playstore today. Kind of a crazy feeling.

    Congratulations! 😃
    Now starts the hard part.
    Getting the first 100 downloads so that your app is findable when searching for your app in the play store.

    What problem does your app solve? 🙂

    @heyheni haha i know. It's an app which I made for myself in the beginning(that's why it's currently not too stable).
    I called it "WhatsApp image optimizer". I ran into a problem when using whatsapp backups, because whenever I would restore backups on a new phone from google drive, all the images would be shown as taken on the day the backup was restored(file's editing meta data date). So what my app basically does is extracting the date of the image from the filename that whatsapp gives the image and saves that into the exif data as date taken.

    Only works properly on android 11 right now, that's the sad part beause in order to edit images other apps created i need to ask the user for the permission. Below android 11 i need to do that for every single image(now imagine that with 3990 files) bit since android 11 i can request editing access to an array of images, which works like a charm

    Ithink I limited the devices to api lebel 30 for now so it could be the vase that your phone is not supported

    I'm on Android 10 on my Galaxy M31. Play Store tells me, that my device isn't compatible😅

    @Lucypher66 this app sadly requires abdroid 11(api level 30).
    This is because i need to request user consent to edit all the photos since android knows that WhatsApp is the "owner" of these photos. The problem here is, that below android 11 I would have to request access to each single photo. This causes severe problems if you have got thousands of images on your phone. On android 11 I can request access to all photos at once. That's why it's not available for android 10. But I appreciate your interest!
