Utilise adopted sd card with android 6 marshmallow

New storage capability should allow app and data to all reside on an adopted SD card freeing up internal storage. In any event I can't even get my data on the adopted card

You can store you’r downloaded episodes on the SD card by selecting SD card in Settings/Download/Storage folder.
Moving the whole app on the SD card isn’t a good idea because the performance of the app database will then be really low and the SD card tends to get often corrupted compared to the device internal memory

    @Stuart
    I'm sorry but I don't understand your comment.
    The purpose of this Android feature is for you to forget about your storage. You let the device install and store the data without having to choose between the internal memory or the SD card as this is the case when you use the SD card in a more standard way.
    Can you please send me an email with more detail about the issue so I can understand what the problem is (Settings/Feedback)?

    Thanks

    this is very frustrating. my phone only has 8gb of internal memory, once i have the default apps installed i have no memory. I used to have the internal and sd card separate but i had no choice to make it an adopted SD card.
    Podcast Addict is an excellent app, but with no option to move the app or the podcasts to the adopted SD card, i'll have to look elsewhere for my podcasts.

    this make me very sad.

    i feel you should let the user decide if they would like to run the risk of data corruption on the SD card.

    This is very frustrating- you have known about the issue for quite some (months) time and done nothing to resolve it.

    Merci. En fait j'ai trouvé un sdcard en dessous de la racine. J'ai validé et la place prise par podcast addict telle qu'affichée dans storage à diminuée de 900MB. Pourtant le total de la place disponible en internal storage n'a pas changé. Plus bizarre : le téléchargement ou la suppression d'épisodes n'affecte pas ces chiffres.
    La gestion du stockage sous MM me semble étrange.

    I am very sorry but it does not work for me. The storage folder does not give me any sdcard option.
    Can you help ?

    I was already storing downloads on the external SD while running kitkat on my S5. I upgraded to marshmallow this morning and now podcast Addicit no longer recognizes the storage. I tried moving the entire Android/... tree under what Podcast Addict seems to be indicating is the new top level directory, but it is still not recognized.

    Oddly, if I go into the storage with a file browser and tell it to open one of my downloads with Pdocast Addict, it plays fine.

    the /sdcard folder IS the internal storage on Android.
    The external sd card mounting point depends on the manufacturer.
    If you want to store your downlaoded files on the SD card you need to select the 'SD card' radio button in Settings/Download/Storage folder but it won't work if you're using your SD card to extend the internal storage

    It isn't clear where the SD card is on Android Marshmallow. I am selecting "/sdcard/Podcasts" and it is still filling up the Internal storage!

    Hello Guillaume, Save to other folder into SD card have some advantage. To free internal memory, to be able to backup more easily in prevention.
    If we chose to save to SD we accept to fact that SD can be corrupted and this will be our problem.
    Please revised your position, you will get more positive opinion than negative.
    The workaround selecting internal storage and navigate to SD Card doesn't work in MM (at least for me).
    Thanks for your time.

    This is not possible if the SD card has been configured as "internal" (the new marshmallow feature). In that case the card's file system is not available and it's impossible to move the downloaded episodes there...

    @Marc

    Corrupted SD cards are pretty common. Over the past 5 years I saw this hundreds of times. If the SD card is used to store the downloaded episodes, this isn't too much of an issue because episodes can usually be re-downloaded. If the app database is lost or corrupted the user will lose his/her subscriptions and episode status which can be an issue... So until the app get a cross device syncing/cloud backup feature, I will avoid enabling this.
    Selecting to store episodes on the SD card is quite easy. You just have to go into Settings/Download, press on storage folder and select 'SD card'. There's no folder to select

    Please reconsider.

    Selecting the storage folder location isn't as easy as selecting to move the app to adopted SD card storage. I know I can do it, but I am not looking forward to explaining how to do this to my mom.

    Some SD cards can be slow and easily corrupted but I've never had any issues with ones from the big-name manufacturers. If someone's SD card gets corrupted, the Podcast Addict database and performance degradation are relatively minor concerns when weighed against the other problems that could happen from a failing SD card such as loss of photos or personal data, so I don't agree that these concerns are a good justification for not offering the feature.

    I'm also having this issue with my updated LG G4 (AT&T). Please fix if you have time.

    So frustrating because I love this app and rely on it for my music all day long at work and now I'm dead in the water. No space on internal mememory to use app.
