I think that the idea of having the possibility to choose which folders can be shared between Sailfish and Android could be nice!

I'm thinking about what happens inside i.e. Parallels Desktop, Virtualbox or any other VM manager: the idea is to have a section inside settings, in particular inside Android Support settings, just to choose folders to be shared.

This would help and ease the changings inside Android apps (i.e. sending documents inside WhatsApp, etc..), and would help Jolla in improving Android Support without releasing a new version each time an Android app changes its features.

EDIT 2018-04: not yet added in v2.1.4

Well, I could be possible to extend this to a dual boot phone.

Symbolic links maybe?

rmdir /home/nemo/Downloads
ln -s /home/android_storage/Download /home/nemo/Downloads

to keep dowloads from both native email app and android's firefox in one directory, and to see them all in Documents app.

I have found symlinks to not work reliably where i cant use a symlink to direct an android app to access and store a folder and data on an SD Card, as just an example.
