  1. Hello, if you want to write to SD-card from a non-system app to any folder (not only Android/data/<package-name>), you need root and a modification on a file "platform.xml". There are Android-apps for patching this file. For all other users (like me) with non-rooted devices under KitKat normal (non-system) Android-apps can write only to the allowed folder (see above) on the SD-card. For Evernote it is in my point ov view no problem. The program could store all needed cache-files under the named folder, which will be deleted on uninstallation. The installation of Evernote on the SD-card does not help and will break the background functionality.
  2. Ummmm... Evernote hates Android users? They have lazy developers? Or maybe they don't acknowledge it as a real problem, or at least one that they deem is a high enough priority to address. You choose... *shrug* Hello, what can we do for escalating this problem? Of course we can use the official support (I tried it without quick success), but do we have other options? The problem in my point of view is, that offline notebooks can become very big (I have over 600MB today and growing). If there exists any technical reason against an easy(?) solution, can anyone name it? I think, the usage of official Android API is not so big problem. The developers can look into opensource apps like OSMAnd and their logic for writing to SD-card. I don't mean to be unsympathetic - my offline folder is a GB plus, and I started a thread in favour of SD storage ages ago. But what makes you think the problem is that Evernote couldn't solve this issue? They may have done so already, but have chosen so far not to implement the solution. Or not. There's no way to "force" the company to devote resources to solving an issue even if it is a problem for some percentage of their user base. I tend to think it's a bit like steering an oil tanker - you need to plan ahead a lot before you make any changes to the route... Feel free to lobby for a change, but beware of becoming a troll in the process.. Ok, this are good words. But why is Evernote ignoring(?) the discussion and not solving it with an easy fix? So they would have a new feature for the android variant and some more enthusiasts for their solution. I will use the existing tool so long until my internal storage is filled or I can not extend it for evernote. Then I will look for other solutions from competitors and completly switch over. I understand, the discussion in this forum will not accelerate any solution.

  4. On Android KitKat (4.4.2) on Samsung devices (and also others) every app with correct rights/permissions can write datas to the folder /Android/data/<app-package-name>. So Evernote could save the offline notebooks to the folder /Android/data/com.evernote on the /storage/extSdCard (on Samsung S4). On Android 4.3 the app could save/write everywhere on the SD-card with the correct permissions. But for compatibility with KitKat the folder should be like written above. Other apps like Navigation, MusicPlayers, Podcast-Players ... use the same concept.
