How to quickly delete photos via share menu in Android [Tip]

Android smartphones and tablets usually have a default gallery app. With the gallery app, you can easily view local photos and even rotate or crop them as you like. You can also delete them or sort them out by albums or date.

Speaking of which, what if you’ve stumbled upon an app that lacks the option to delete your local images? Well, in that case, you may look for a workaround like using the file manager but that’s already too much of a hassle. So instead of doing so, why don’t you simply add a “delete” option to the app’s share menu?
