I have saved games to SD cards before but I got a new phone and and new SD card gave to me and I no longer have the option to save games to my SD card. Is it the kind of SD card? It also won't let me save on my Chromebook. I've check and the developer allows it to be saved, it's unlocked, formatted, and just ever thing. Is it the kinda card? Is there some out there you can't download games to? I have a game I have played forever I DL it on my last SD card and phone before and it won't let me on these. I don't have any other SD card now except this one. Also its Android and from the playstore. I don't want to DL one of those apps that lets you put whatever you want into an SD card. I want this issue fixed! Please help! Oh and I've got developer option opened up on my phone too...
It's difficult to tell for sure without specifics (plus I'm pretty sure I don't understand how half the info is supposed to be pertinent to the matter), but I had a similar experience albeit on transitioning from likely a much older gen android (maybe 4 or 5); back then, having apps stored on the sd instead of memory was model dependent, and wasn't available for all apps. More recent android os versions now offer a general solution in the form of defining the sd as a permanent extension of the phone's memory. On the one hand, it's simple and portable; however, I'm not sure the extension is readily reversible, if at all, without reformatting the memory entirely (particularly for replacing the card), and in terms of independent storage it's ineffectual.
I don't trust random apps either (plus due to the android permissions system alterations you can barely do anything cross app like this - even monitoring power consumption individually requires rooting), but if you're willing to fiddle with a few lines of code (on a superuser level), it's possible to create a backup of or restore installed apps' memory or apk to your computer, which ought to be a more reliable storage method. It's called adb, sort of android's external communication protocol in recent versions (built in, doesn't need rooting). Just look up a guide on how to backup android apps.
Otherwise, I don't really know what to tell ya. Android is open source and heavily influenced by google's whims (per my understanding), so that's really poor grounds for having a say in what direction the os takes. As a rule, user friendliness, full backwards compatibility, tech support rarely top the charts for devs.
At any rate, pretty sure it's not the card. That's just a dumb beast of burden.
