Yes, success!

It was strange to me the different ways I had to agree to use apps from outside sources from the two different Android versions. It was much simpler on the phone and I didn't have to click on your email link twice like I did when I installed it on my tablet.

Anyway, both are displaying correctly now. And I double checked my older tablet and it is still working as well.

Thanks so much!

If anyone else wants to try the "fixed" version, it can be via this link to the files on my personal server. Open the link on your device and select the file you want (probably the full version). The first time you do this you will be asked to allow installation from unknown sources.

The full version contains the same licence checks as the one on google play and behaves in the same way when doing the checks. To avoid problems with the checks you must have purchased CC from the play store.

V5.4.4.1 Change log:
  • Fixed rare problem where choosing a storage folder fails to do anything.
  • Fix for comments missing in book details.

EDIT: I am releasing the update this way because the Play Store won't let me. CC hasn't been updated to follow the new rules so updates are blocked.

More detail: following the "new rules" I am referring to will require CC to hand copies of books to reader apps instead of the original file on devices running Android Nougat (7), Oreo (8), Pie (9) and up. I am not able to do this work at the moment because most of my "stuff" is in storage until our flat construction is finished. I also am not at all convinced that forcing copies is a good idea, but in the end I might not have a choice.

Well, installed (curious, in my case, I don't accept apps from unknown sources but from this source) and it's working. I'll try to test it in my tablet tomorrow night.

could get messy...

so CC has my books in its download folder , when I ask to read one , it makes a copy of the file and somehow hands that to say Moon reader... which does what exactly? i suspect nothing - it just displays the current page for reading, but does not file that copy anyplace different... so its just more data traffic within the tablet. and if moon reader is operating on that copy in RAM or in some temp storage, I forsee problems when tablet sleeps or is restarted.
also while all that is maybe ok for a typical book, what if I want to read some humongous tome, that is way bigger than my free ram. How does the copy then get from a to b ??? and is it now occupying 2 x the storage ?
so you may need to test with the collected works of W Shakespeare, or whatever the biggest public domain book you can find happens to be ?

i will be tempted to act on a tipoff from yourself and block auto updates just before you are obliged to push such an update into the store

Thumbs up Thanks for All Your Suggestions!

I just received an email, notifying me of all these comments on the thread. I'm a bit tied up at the moment. At the first opportunity, I will read throught this thread & try these suggestions & see what happens.

Thank you again for taking the time to respond. Have a terrific day!!

Thanks Charles, I snagged a copy 'just in case'. I have no need for the' latest and greatest' Android version.
I think I will set CC updates to NOT auto update (I already do that for apps I do not use but can't remove. I am not rooted or anything)

The mechanism is the same as used for streaming online content. The "source" app, in this case CC, gives the "sink" app, in this case the reader, a "handle" to the data. The handle permits the sink to get the data serially from the source, copying it over a potentially internal network. If there is no possibility of moving backwards in the data or requiring access some time later then the sink can process the data stream without making a copy. If the sink must support replay, repositioning, or device restart then it must copy the data to a file it controls before permitting the user to access the data.

It would be very easy for the sink to end up with multiple copies of the same thing.

that is the worrying bit. If I were using the route of always going via CC to resume reading a book, then by the time I had resumed 10 times , there could be 10 copies floating around.
as it happens , i don't do that, i resume via the recent items in Moon reader, but other CC users may well always go in via CC to resume in their reader of choice

i guesstall you can do is follow Google play rules, and test+document the knock on effects for your users.

you have a version in amazon store also, amazon have no plans to enforce this silliness, yet ?

Ugh, of all the things to copy from iOS, why did Android copy the inane file handling?

i get the rationale about security, file integrity- file has to belong to an app...
it is just that this one size fits all approach is not suited to the scenario of a book library app working with book reader apps.
thow in the case of the reader app needing to consult with a dictionary app, regularly and it gets even worse !

It's actually even worse for multi-mega or gigabyte media files.

I posted about it here: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh....php?p=3805752
