Nexus Photo Viewer allows you to view the JPEG photos from a USB flash drive or SD card on your Nexus 7 (G1 and G2), Nexus 5, & Nexus 10, Galaxy Nexus, Xoom or other Android 4.0+ devices that do not support mounting external flash storage. Requires the following hardware. 1) A USB OTG Cable (Cost approximately $1-5 USD on Amazon), 2) A USB Flash Drive or USB SD Card Reader and SD Card. See screenshots for hardware examples.

Technical Notes:

-The Nexus 4 does not support OTG/USB Host and can not be supported.
-DOES NOT REQUIRE ROOT!
-The USB drive must be formatted as FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS. These are the most common formats for flash drives.
-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!

    Just wanted to be able to see photos from my Canon camera's SD card in the field on my Nexus 5 (kit kat v4.4.4) Best of all, it doesn't require rooting the phone, thanks to the dev!
