Request write access to external memory devices


I use a firetv and while I love popcorn-tv, and would be willing to donate to keep using it, it has become virtually unusable. With the newest version of Android, one cannot write to external memory w/out giving permission to do so first. Firetv doesn’t have options to choose and by default allow an app to write to.
The solution? Have the Popcorn-time app request permission. I realize it’s more complicated than that but it’s possible as ES file explorer does it and previously terrarium TV did.
Please I’m begging!


It’s not that simple anymore because Google disabled it. ES File Explorer is another app.
Reason for that is because peoples uses cheap and extremly slow SD cards and then complain how slow Android is.
