I have an old phone running nonstop at work. On maintenance days, it runs out of work. This setting for the desktop client should be included on the android client as well.

The problem with that is storage space. The present client still uses internal memory only, which is still rather small on most present devices, compared to that of other platforms. Perhaps when they manage to add using external storage, although newer devices don't use that anymore - but then they do have 64GB or more storage space.
Please do not private message me for tech support. Use the forums for that. Tech PMs will be ignored!

Well, wouldn't the other disk options (Use no more than N GB, Leave at least N GB free, & Use no more than N% of total) take precedence? I assume that's how it works for the desktop client.

That would make things complicated on the Android devices, plus we don't know if it works for all Android versions. There are problems enough already getting BOINC to work on Android 7 and 8, with apparently even the latest Alpha version being unable to run any science applications on Android 9. The workaround for all projects where BOINC runs out of work is of course to add a second project.

Ah okay, I didn't realize there were that many issues regarding the application. Thanks for the information!
