I want to have all my projects saved to my sd card instead of my tablet storage area but cannot figure out where to change the "SAVE TO" directory in the app. Thanks

But, unlike most other animation apps, Flip-a-Clip does not allow you to work (Save to, Open/Close) its projects directly to/from an external SD, correct? That is, you have to work within the phone/tablet's internal (built into the motherboard) SD storage.


I for one think that it would be a big help if it could at least store/work with project media files using an 'external' chip as saving any other kind of file to external SDs seems to a big Android bottleneck. And what new phones still feature external SDs? The money is all in shutting that door for users, as Apple has shown for years.

Hello,

If you have an SD card on Android you can move your app to the SD card instead of internal memory and then your projects are going to be saved to SD card. Just in case, be sure to backup your projects before doing that because they can get damaged in the process.

In the future, we are going to have a cloud account saving and all projects are going to be saved to your account automatically.

No idea, but did you try the general saving settings on the tablet ? Also mentioning which tablet might help other users to highlight you the solution :)

Hello,


When you move FlipaClip to SD card all of your animations should be saved there. But please be sure to backup all of your projects first as in the process some of the files might be deleted. That should not happen but just in case to be 100% sure.

Hi Alenka,


Yes, you can move FlipaClip to SD card just like any other app and all of your projects are going to be saved there, freeing space on the internal memory of your device.

But we strongly recommend that you first backup your projects before moving FlipaClip to SD card because some files might get damaged in the process.


Best,

Dusan

Hello,


After you move FlipaClip to SD card your old projects will still remain on the phone storage. Only new projects will be located on the SD card.
