I like to be able to support science i the world even with my mobile device but i feel like there is missing a few things.

Like being able to select how many days of project data i want on phones that doesnt have its own SimCard and sometimes will have to wait for a WIFI conection.

And being able to move the Project data to the SDCard because i have 2 devices with 1 core on 1.4Ghz and another with 2 cores on 1.2Ghz but they are missing just 900MB of space but both of them have 32 GB og SDCard.

Ty again for a great idea about making phones into mini science computers.

Best regards

Unfortunately, due to the way Android works, BOINC can have issues properly starting up automatically if placed on an SD card. Maybe someday it might be option if you aren't concerned about it launching with startup, but there's limited development support for the Android client.

For Android 7 and above, making the SD card part of the internal storage does not overcome this limitation despite what Google says that this works.

Again (my reply to old thread,) what about the case one roots a device? Would it work then, or still more work needs to be done?
