I tried several things but I couldn't get any of them to work. You can write to and read from
the mobile documents folder, but if you put a file in there manually it isn't seen by the app.
I use a very good file manager on Android called Solid Explorer and it does see a file I copy
to documents, but my mobile app doesn't list it or confirm anything is there.
If you want to try, download a good file manager; Google or Samsung's default Files app won't
work. Then go to the app's document folder, which is located here:
You may have to give the file manager permissions to open those folders, they're locked down in
recent versions of Android. Solid Explorer will ask you to allow it.
We really need LC to give us access to the public documents folder. I think that's the only way
to do what you (and I) want.
