Issue Important Update May 5th : requestLegacyExternalStorage


New Member
@appyet please release an update.

Starting May 5th, you must let us know why your app requires broad storage access

We've detected that your app contains the requestLegacyExternalStorage flag in the manifest file of 1 or more of your app bundles or APKs.
Developers with apps on devices running Android 11+ must use Scoped Storage to give users better access control over their device storage. To release your app on Android 11 or newer after May 5th, you must either:
  • Update your app to use more privacy friendly best practices, such as the Storage Access Framework or Media Store API
  • Update your app to declare the All files access (MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE) permission in the manifest file, and complete the All files access permission declaration in Play Console from May 5th
  • Remove the All files access permission from your app entirely
For apps targeting Android 11, the requestLegacyExternalStorage flag will be ignored. You must use the All files access permission to retain broad access.
Apps requesting access to the All files access permission without a permitted use will be removed from Google Play, and you won't be able to publish updates.

Temo che Appyet sia oramai una balena spiaggiata (e abbandonata), priva di qualunque supporto tecnico e/o di sviluppo :(

Tra l'altro, questo non è l'unico problema delle App di Appyet: è da sistemare il target SDK 30, il formato apk da sostituire con l'app bundle... Tutti problemi noti da tempo e anche questi senza riscontro da parte del Team di Sviluppo!
