NOTE: The "Pro" version of this app is updated 2-4 weeks earlier than the free version, and thus has some bug fixes and new features not available in the free version. If you'd like to get the latest fixes and features earlier, the pro version is for you. Otherwise, you can live a full and happy life with the free version. See the description in the pro version for details about differences between the free and pro versions.

    It's worked perfectly on Android 4.4.2, but couldn't work on 5.0.2. It says "changing permissions of the file failed".
