Please use the support option before giving the App a low rating, or if you do give low rating, please describe your issues in detail so that they can be addressed for other users.

Version 4.0 of this application adds support for using the Android Storage Framework, which provides support to write to the External SD card. In Android 4.4 Google changed the security for external SD cards, and this application, like many others were no longer able to write to the external SD card. In Android 4.4 you cannot use SAF to download multiple items. In Android 5.0 you can. For single downloads, you can write to the external SD card in both Android 4.4 and 5.0+. If you have never had an issue downloading, then you don't need to worry about enabling this feature. SAF is off by default, but is enabled in the Download section in the Preferences.
