    Android. And because my internal memory is limited. But I've more than 200 GB on my external SD card.

    Komoot, OSMAnd, Spotify all are able to use that.

    Hi @Bertogi

    Unfortunately, this isn't currently possible. The app always selects the most appropriate storage during the first run of the app. This is based on the most available space left on either the SD card (if inserted) or internal storage. We'll explore this option further with our development team.

    From version 2.3, we have added support for SD cards that are formatted as internal storage. This means:
    • When the SD card is formatted as internal storage (adoptable storage), you can have the app located on the SD card)
    • When the SD card is formatted as portable storage, you can move some of the internal files to the SD card

    I have read you can fill Main Memory with large files, say videos, and that will force the install to the SD Card.

    That was possible once. I remember.

    OSMAnd, Komoot, Spotify, Google Maps, Mapy.cz etc allow it.
