I do have the very same problem… On one hand the default gallery app can’t read photos on SD card until reboot and on the other, simple gallery rotates 90° all the pictures taken from the default camera app. This is a small inconvenience I agree, but it makes laught the iOs users of my relatives, which annoys me beyond limits.
I tried the simple camera app, but there is two others issues. First is obviously the lack of available settings and second is that the gallery access thumbnail on the top right of the screen disapears after taking a photo…
So lets sum up elements :
- Simple Gallery rotation bug fixing could solve the problem, but anyways the build in gallery app ought to work for such a basic feature
- Simple Camera has its own annoying problems and therefore is not a solution
- There must be a way for the built in gallery to refresh in real time the content of the SD card, since a third part app does achieve it
- The default gallery app is quite ugly
For now, I bypassed the problem by saving the pictures in the (small) internal memory of my samsung galaxy A3. I didn’t find any others way to make the iOS user stop laughing. Anyhow, this app is quite ugly.
