It’s a guarantee that the concepts, ideas, and possibly the point of the program that you are writing will change several times before it’s actually done. If you have ever heard the buzzwords like Agile, Scrum, Extreme Programming, or anything similar, then you have put ...

All you have to do is use Environment.getExternalStoreDirectory(), and you’re good to go! Well, not quite. After all, that’s what StackOverflow says. If you actually try the above method on a Samsung device, life won’t be fun for you. Environment.getExternalStoreDirectory() actually returns the incorrect path ...
