Nexus Photo Viewer – USB Media Viewer

[App] Nexus Photo Viewer changed to USB Photo Viewer

Nexus Photo ViewerFormerly known as Nexus Photo Viewer, USB Media Viewer allows you to view the JPEG and RAW photos from a USB flash drive or SD card your Nexus, Pixel or other Android 4.0+ devices with USB Host support.

Requires the following hardware:
1) A USB OTG Cable (Cost approximately $1-10 USD on Amazon)

Technical Notes:

The Nexus 4 does not support OTG/USB Host and can not be supported.
Hard Drives.  It is strongly recommended that you use external power when connecting a hard drive to a tablet.  Please see the troubleshooting guide on my web site for more information.  Do not connect an unpowered hard drive to a phone!

Nexus Photo Viewer user reviews :

Good app, it is a 3in1 app. PhotoManager+FileManager+OTGTroubleshooter. If you tap all photos then you will see the photos on the drive and if you tap folders then it will show you the folders, subfolders and files on the drive. And I like the OTG troubleshooter and it can be accessed through the USB logo, which means that you won’t even have to download the OTG Troubleshooter app from Play Store since it’s included in Usb photo viewer. And someone said 8 files can be seen but I saw a lot of file

This app is broken, I installed this app for additional support of image viewing on S9+. The factory option allows you to look at pics from USB media, but the preview icon is tiny. This is a gateway app to a paid version and after uninstalling I no longer can view my files from a type C to USB media device. Do Not Install this app, you will lose media device functionally.

Downloaded to view photos on sdcards. Does what it says, but you cannot zoom in on photos. You also cannot swipe to the next photo. Kind of pointless for my needs.

Not what I was hoping for. This app dose allow you to view the from my USB SD card reader. But thats it. I can’t zoom in or delete pics from my card

You can view thumbnails or one pic at a time. Cannot browse, swipe or side show. Not really useful.

It didn’t work for this camera, but the developer took the time to code in why it wouldn’t work. That’s rare to find someone that cares about the end user. Bravo!

Not what I hoped. cannot swipe, zoom or delete from sd card. I bought to see my game cam pics. App pushes you to buy the useful version

If there are a large number of photos in the folder it won’t display anything until it has loaded all of them!

I have a problem, I can’t save the chosen photo and save it on my phone gallery

Never could get it to work but my pixel 4 XL might be the problem.

Its really good for photos but i couldn’t add the photos or videos to my phone. Is there another app or something that could let me do that

Cannot clear unwanted images and video from SD card. Most recent use I was only able to view thumbnails

  • The photo viewer only allows you to view photos. For full functionality, get USB Media Explorer. If you double tap the thumbnails or press the expand button you will see the image full screen.
