    Welcome to Android Central! In KitKat, there are increased restrictions for app access to the SD card. An app needs to have specific permissions for SD access, and the app can typically only manipulate files in the folder it creates.

    People have claimed that they can edit SD card files if they do the following

    Fresh phone OS
    Fresh phone formatted SD Card
    Fresh software install
    Software to choose newly created folder on SD Card
    Files newly written to chosen folder
    MP3 files should be able to have tags edited

    I can't edit edit using Rocket Player
    I can't select new SD folder for documents with at least 4 office compatibles.

    Are there any apps that allow SD card folder creation, storage and editing?

    If there are what procedure would I follow?

    The app that created the folder and put the files into it can edit the files. Other apps can't unless they're running under su. Plain old Linux 101.

    The only change in KitKat is that the SD card is now treated the same as all other storage in the phone.

    So tell me what office app can create an SD folder, write to and edit on the SD.

    What procedure is required in the app installation, folder creation and file placement on the SD that will allow editing and saving to the SD folder?

    What music player that can edit tags will work?

    It appears Hancom Office pre-installed on the note 4 will write to the SD and can be edited and saved there. Is there an music player with tag editor that will also work on sd.
