BOINC hangs during start up with white screen with logo (splash screen), if I have moved the app to SD card. It works if I don't move it. I would prefer if I could move it to SD since I lack free space on the internal flash memory.

Phone: TCL 4034D
OS: Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)
I installed the app from Google Play today i.e. it is 7.4.53.

It's not possible to move the client to an SD card, because then it won't be able to run in a secure way. The client installs bits of itself to the root directory to make sure it cannot be tampered with. Also it will download separate applications that run the science, a thing Android doesn't like when done from anywhere but the secure directories.

So don't move it. If it gives you space trouble, then don't run BOINC on thay device. Or clean other apps off to make enough space.
