Yes, I work fulltime as a .NET software developer.
The biggest challenge was finding a balance between a full-time job, family with two children and my passion for programming.
Technically, the hardest part was to make the UI simple enough for the less tech-savvy to understand and yet not let down the more experienced users who need advanced functionality.
"My name is Jan and I am a fullstack .NET software developer.
I have been active in the mobile device scene since the HTC Touch Diamond 2, which still ran Windows Mobile and was launched in 2009. There I was very fascinated by custom roms which drove me to develop something myself and I started to write small mods. Later, when Android became popular, I created custom roms myself and specialised in reverse engineering the HTC framework to extend it with a variety of my own features.
This hobby was very time consuming, sometimes I spent 100 hours a week debugging and coding. So I had to give it up when I became a father for the first time to be able to devote myself fully to my family. But I couldn't give up development completely, because I just enjoy coding...and so I turned to app development."
FX-File Explorer: The app is plain, simple, intuitive and yet versatile and feature-rich.
Amazon Photos: With a Prime account, you have unlimited storage space for photos, which is really handy if you have young children and take thousands of photos of them every year.
Teamviewer: Life saver when you don’t have a laptop around and are able to connect to your office PC to help some colleagues out. Even did some bug fixing recently on a vacation with my family on my phone because one of my apps crashed immediately when it was started.
I started working on the app about three years ago.
That the app is user friendly and intuitive so it can be used by everyone without any technical knowledge.
My app is not better than other apps, because I believe my app is unique in what it can do.
If there had already been a similar working app, I would not have developed Image & Video Date Fixer in the first place.
I don't think I'm particularly innovative in any way. If anyone is innovative, it's my users. Through criticism, ideas and suggestions they made the app to what it is now. I’m doing just the easy part…find a way to fix reported issues in the app and implement their ideas.
I planned to update my app to use the new Material 3 design. Feature wise maybe a JobService like my other app Picture Manager already has, that automatically injects EXIF data in images that don’t have any so the capture date is permanently saved into the file.
Feel free to contact me via mail or join our telegram group if you need help using the app or have any feature suggestions.
Ever copied images from one phone to another, downloaded them from a cloud backup or moved them from an external storage to your phone and ended up with a messed up gallery?
This happens because the file modification dates of your images have now all the same date:
The date the images were moved or downloaded to your device.
Because the file modification date is used to sort the media, the images now appear in random order.
Here comes Image and Video Date Fixer to the rescue.
It can read the capture date of images and videos from its metadata and restore the file modification date to its orignal value.
In case your images do not contain EXIF Metadata, but contain the date in the filename, Image & Video Date Fixer can parse the filename to extract the date, save it as EXIF date attribute and corrects the file modified date in one go.
Additonally Image & Video Date Fixer offers changing dates for multiple images at once.
You can either set dates one by one, select one single date to be applied, apply a time difference or even increment the date after each file by a selected value.
The free version allows you to fix 50 files per run.
If you want to fix more files per run you can buy the premium version with an in app purchase.
