Does this work for all android versions (e.g. Android 11) and will there be any impact when AppInventor targets API 30 ?

Why did you remove your extension from Kodular?

Kodular removed it

Really nice extension @JEWEL, you have overtaken MIT App Inventor's Activity Starter GET_CONTENT!

after the SDK30 limitations the file picker extension might not work in all cases anymore to access arbitrary directories... see also the unanswered question by @TIMAI2

for this purpose the SAF extension might be used


Perfect extension, add the obj files and applications as well :grin::+1:
