Many thanks to my numerous loyal users who have supported me over the years and understand the problems of keeping apps up to date.  Also to those who have given me constructive and / or positive reviews on the Play Store.  A massive thank you to those who have taken the time to help troubleshoot issues (sending screenshots, files, etc.).  Also to those, who have supported me with donations (which I still find incredible that people do!).  I've got to know some of you quite well over the years!

I have spent hundreds of hours since September trying to get the app able to run on newer versions of Android due to security updates (whilst I probably should have been spending time with my family!), however, I've taken a bit of a battering recently via email and Play Store ratings.  With this in mind, I wanted to let users know that I am now considering removing the app from Google Play Store (and Amazon App Store).   I'm finding it tough going to deal with it all!  I will likely keep the app available via my website downloads page, which will also stop 'unexpected/forced' updates (as apps install via apk files don't get automatically updated).  I'll keep the app on the Play Store for now (to help out those who need the update).  I'll take a little time to consider my options.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

In order to move forward with newer devices (and the restrictions imposed), I've unfortunately had to drop support for devices running Android 4.2 and lower.  I've only just managed to support KitKat for now (4.4).  Android Lollipop (5.1) is now the recommended minimum.  KitKat still cannot use SD cards I'm afraid, but the app will still work for you.  I will keep older versions of the app on my Downloads page.

Just a quick note to let others know that a few users are starting to experience problems with external storage not being available.  This is due to updates to Android security (nothing to do with me, despite criticism in the Play Store comments).  I've always encouraged people to use internal/emulated storage - which I still suggest you do.  Affected devices mostly seem to be Samsung ones currently.  If you can move or copy your songs (using a file manager) and change your storage location in OpenSongApp, I'd highly recommend it.  Check the internal/emulated storage location reported by OpenSongApp.  This is the best place to store your files.  I've played around with a way of changing how the storage can be accessed, but with limited success.  I can just about make it work in the app, but currently Dropsync and Dropbox can't use the affected device storage either, so that would create other problems.  I'm unlikely to be able to fix this.

Here it is, the big update!  While most users will only notice cosmetic differences, the app has virtually been rewritten from the base up, hopefully improving the overall performance and, of course, adding a rake of new features!

If you have any issue with accessing your current song database, don't worry, it won't have been deleted.  Open the manage storage option and select your original storage location.  You may need to close the app and then reopen it for everything to be rebuilt.
