Still not a software fix by Spotify. 59 people can get on here and talk about hacks, workarounds, rooted phones etc. But that ain't gonna get it. What it does tell me is that regular people can alter the software so it works on some devices but the crack Spotify team apparently cannot. Wait. It was a feature they had but removed. So they can figure out how to reinstate a line of code. OK.

Just a note for everyone.
Google updated android and set a standard for most apps (depending on the permissions) so they cannot be moved to an sd card. This is due to the fact that it's easy to hack into your external sd card and extract iinformation. Spotify obviously had to adhere to the standard so the app could be listed on the market. So on short its for Google security reasons the feature was removed.

So the question is can Spotify get around this issue in a future update? Maybe receiving 'trusted' status from Google to be able to do it?

Hurry though Spotify we want a fix!

What ?

Thank u for the note do you have more details about that ?

 

If I check the SDK doc I don't see where you cannot use a SD Card storage...

http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html

 

You mean install an app or store app data on SD Card ?

It was on the news. See above link. 

 

So the exploit turned into duff apps knowing the directory they save to then have free access to information its collected. 

 

This was then fixed by restricting apps from sd cards. Not just at app level on the market place but also at android level where once we could move apps to an sd card in app manager.

 

Its logic really as google arent going to publicise exploits or fixes in any way.

The post you gave is from 2010 ... 2 years ago.

I don't think it's a new policy for an old bug.

 

I tried the Android SDK few months ago and I was able to use SD Card ...

It's followed through since then right up to jelly bean. You cannot produce an official app (with certain permissions) that installs and executes off an sd card. Google stopped it since froyo.

An app might be able to utilise the sd card but not store its cache on it.

Is there a similar option for doing this with rdio?
