    Note 10.1 2014. Is it possible to stop the date taken being shown in the bottom corner of every picture when using gallery. It is there for about 3 seconds. I have gone into settings and turned tag buddy off. Still shows the date. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Some gallery-type apps allow this, but you should be aware that the date (and time and location if available) is in the EXIF* data in the picture whether it's shown or not. (And there are hundreds of EXIF reader apps out there. To get rid of the data completely, you'd need an app capable of writing the EXIF header, so you could blank out all the data, then write the blank data back to the file.)

    *EXIF stands for Exchangeable image file format, the format used by digital recording devices like cameras and cellphones.
