[Android][Developer] Improvement on download logic to prevent loss of data.

Improvement on download logic to prevent loss of data.

 

Anyone who has a SD card suffers tremendously when booting devices.  I am aware that this behavior occurs on SD storage.

 

I believe that if a unique user key was created in the moment of login, it would work as any "home" directory. This is a major problem of Spotify , and it has to be addressed.

I interact with thousands of files that must be downloaded every time I boot..

 

Before starting the download after a reboot, the app must try to find any other downloaded music for that user key (in any mounted storage). Another possibility is to OFFER the option of a new download, OR browsing the destination of already downloaded content.

 In terms of illustration, if user A has downloaded content and user B logs in, the user key would be different, so any downloads for user A wouldn't work. Then , if user A logs in on the same device, the content would be available.

 

 

Thank you for your time

-Daniel.

Thanks for adding as suggestion.

I believe that every user has a unique ID, and you can take this advantage to implement the Spotify data storage.

Please do not hesitate to contact me.

Cheers
