Why Can't SkySafari 6 Pro Read Custom Observing Lists On Android Anymore? (Answer: The Observing Lists Directory Had To Be Moved Due To New Android 10 Security Protocols - Read On!)

On Jan 4 I was able to copy new observing lists to an Android tablet observing lists directory and have them appear in the app.  On Jan 6, this functionality did not work with the new update.  I have a second tablet on the 6.7.2.0 version.  I was able to copy these lists to the observing list directory and incorporate them into the app.  Using Live Sky, I was able to synchonize the new lists across all my Android devices.

    Hi Mike,

    The "Observing Lists" directory has moved on the Android device due to security restrictions introduced in Android 10.

    Instead of copying .skylist files to "SkySafari 6 Pro/Observing Lists" on the device, can you please try copying the files to 

    "Android/data/com.simulationcurriculum.skysafari6pro/files/Observing Lists"?
     
    Thanks!
