Hi,

Thanks for posting.

Sorry to read of the issues you are experiencing. We've seen HanDBase for Android working well in Android 6, so this may be more of a result of "sawdust" from the upgrade process than anything else.

Please do the following:

1. Use a file manager on your phone to browse to the internal storage
2. Find the folder titled HanDBase
3. Open it, making sure it contains all of your database files
4. Make a *copy* of this folder, just to have a backup of your databases
5. Uninstall HanDBase from your phone
6. Reinstall HanDBase from Google Play
7. Open it and check to see if the databases are now listed and verify that HanDBase works properly for you

Let me know the results please.
Kind Regards,
Brian Houghton, DDH Software

Hi Brian,

FYI I apparently had exactly the same issue after upgrading Cyanogen to 13.0 (which I understand implements some new features of Android 6.0.1) on a OnePlus One.

Following the upgrade I could not see any databases in the database view, could not choose a category from the drop up menu, although all of the files were still present in the HanDBase folder.

After reinstalling HanDBase as you suggested I can now see my databases fine, and everything seems to be working.

Thanks for the tip!
