    It's a kitkat 4.4 thing. Totally sucks. Same with poweramp. 3rd party apps can't edit stuff on the sd

    You have to root the phone and either run NextApp SDFix: KitKat Writable MicroSD (root) or, if you don't trust apps to modify system files, modify /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml with a text editor:

    Find android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and android.permission.WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE lines. These are XML sections. You need to make them look exactly like the strings below:

    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_r" />
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    <group gid="media_rw" />
    </permission>
    <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE" >
    <group gid="sdcard_rw" />
    <group gid="media_rw" />
    </permission>

    After you do that, the SD card will work the same way it worked in 4.3 for all apps.

    (You can't get to the file to edit it unless the phone is rooted, Neither can an app.)

    Exactly. QuickPic works fine under Lollipop.

    Work around is:

    1: Use the native gallery app to move, delete, etc: Downside is that gallery contains all your pics so either do a sort on a known parameter or know the file name.

    2. Plug Note 4 into Computer USB. Should be recognized as a device. Open either Card or phone and manipulate files (usually in the DCIM folder) as though they were on a hard drive.

    For some reason ES File Explorer will delete files on SD card. I don't know how it gets around it. Sometimes delete everywhere in google photo works. But as I've found with es as well, it's inconsistent. But with Quickpic it's a no every time.
