When you save a book as offline you need to give the app permission before you can start downloading the book. This was previously done automatically, but due to new guidelines from Google it now needs to be permitted manually. The app only asks this to be able to function properly, it does not access your pictures or save any kind of personal information.
To give the app permission manually, you can follow these steps:
- Go to “Settings”
- Click on “Apps” or “Application manager”
- Click on the Storytel app
- Give the app permission by pulling the lever to the right so it turns green
These steps may differ depending on which version of android you have. If you do not succeed in giving the app permission, you can reinstall the app and this time click ”Yes” when the app asks for permission.
