Android client seems to have changed download location making all interaction with other apps impossible


Seadroid changed downloading files from /Seafile to /Android/data/com.seafile.seadroid2 in some of the previous releases. This changes things drastically since files in the /Android/data directory cannot be accessed from other applications by principle! Therefore files stored in Seafile can’t be viewed/edited/used trough other apps in android (the exception being exporting files which can’t be done with directories or directory trees).
This is a big problem for me, because I need to download whole directories in Android and then access them through external apps (e.g. my scientific literature library).

Proposed solution:
Please change the default directory to /Android/media/com.seafile.seadroid2 or /Seafile or even better give the user the freedom to choose.

Thanks for your help!
With kind regards


Noticed the same. This is indeed an issue. You can downgrade to 2.2.31 which was the last fully working version, at least for me.
