What Can Be Done If There Is Not Enough Memory To Download The Catalog? (Answer: Google Changed App Data Integration And The Internal Data And Memory Requirements Are More Demanding, And Difficult For Much Older Phones)

I installed SS6 Pro on my phone. Bought an additional extension. When download Gaia Extension database, the program requires 1,6GB free space on the SD card, but I already have more than 44,7GB memory free on the SD. This is several times more, than the program needs. Why does she write that "there is not enough free space"?

    Hello Michael,

    Please, make sure you have 1.6 GB free space on the Internal Storage.

    It seems that the message asking about "SD card" space is an error. Thank you for the feedback.

    Best regards,

    Hi Jairo! The phone's free internal memory cannot be greater than 1,15Gb. And so he cleaned everything as much as possible and freed up the catalog for SS6 Pro & PGC galaxy. Is it possible for the installer to download files to the SD card? Or could I download this file from the Internet manually, place it on the SD card and indicate its location to the program? In addition to SS6 Pro, the phone contains several other capacious applications that, unfortunately, cannot be removed or the phone will not be functional. Android 6.0 is already "eating" 5,1Gb. A whole problem on older phones in which internal memory is less 16GB to install such a capacious application with all the additions. It would be good if the developer somehow contributed to the health of the program on older devices with limited memory. If SS Pro develops and increases its functionality, data, complexity of algorithms and sky mapping, planets, phenomena, then such a powerful planetarium will require even more memory. I am used "Yandex Navi" for car driving GPS navigation. "Сбербанк" - for my money control and operation. Telegram - work and friends conversation. Other app - non removable.

    Michael, 

    Sorry, it is not possible what you asked - to download files to the SD card, or to download the files manually.

    Also, Google changed the way in which the data is integrated into the applications, for this reason the internal data and memory requirements are a bit more demanding when installing an app.

    Now older phones encounter these difficulties.

    Hi Keiron!

    This is very sad that the old phone no longer has the ability to install the SkySafari 6 Pro in full (with additions). Apparently, I will complain to the Russian representative office of Google about the procedure for installing new applications and about the too large capacity of its Android operating system and about capacious, non-removable applications. What is on Android on 5GB and what is the "Google Play services" application on 0,5GB? Аnd others that limit the real free memory of the phone. About 40-42% of the memory is occupied in the phone.
