AirDroid v3.1.5 Update, Manage Files in External SD Card with AirDroid Web!

Since Android 4.4, Google has restricted the access permission to the external SD card. Managing files in external SD card becomes a tough task.

However, the Android 5.0 restored the functionality of SD card again. Google still loves SD Card 😉 And now, with AirDroid v3.1.5, you can manage files in external SD card with AirDroid Web again!

AirDroid v3.1.5 1240

Before you go to AirDroid Web and manage files in external SD card, you need to configure some settings in AirDroid app first. It’s quite easy. Just go to Files in AirDroid app > External SD, and you’ll get a pop-up guiding you how to configure:

        3.1.5.1 works fine without crashing, thanks for fixing this quickly! However, I do not see the “External SD” under Files in the app as all I see is “SD Card”, hopefully this can be fixed as I know my External SD card is under /storage/external_SD.
