I have been playing with Island for 2 days now
I am confused about cloning apps to Island that save/export data, let's say for example an app that puts filter effects on pictures and saves / exports data to gallery.
How can I access this data in mainland? I searched for filepath system/emulated/10 but it doesn't show up in mainland...
If I go to filemanager in Island I can't access mainland folders is that normal behaviour?

Copy the files you want to swap between island and mainland to the memorycard.

I have only internal sdcard and no external and I can find no folder or location to share.

1) open the playstore from island, loginto a dummy gmail account (NOT your normal one) and install the app you want. It will only be in island now.

2) download the apk-file of the app (from apkmirror f.ex) and put it on the memorycard. Open island's filebrowser and navigate to the memorycard. From there you can install the apk-file and it will only be in island.

Jeah thats it ^_^

Thank you. Arigatou gozaimasu (^^♪

Hi,
I have installed this application on my Xiaomi Redmi 4 Note (MIUI 8, rooted)
It put phone and contacts on Island.
After I have test Island application, I have removed Island profile and application.
But now I can't open both phone and contact applications. They simple blink and closed.
How can I repair them?

UPD I have found the reason. By Contact application was switched off permission to access phone application. After switching on all work perfect.

The stock file manager should be able to copy files between Island and mainland. Just click the folder icon in the action bar of Island app.

Thanks for your finding. Seems like MIUI has some strange compatibility issues here and there with Android for Work, according to user reports.

I've been using Island for awhile now and it's worked flawlessly, until yesterday. It seemed to have an issue with webview. I tried using the "cloning" button but it did not work. I fully deleted the app and when I try and re-install v2.5 on my OPO 3T, it gets to Accept & Continue and gets "Work Profile setup has stopped". I made Island device admin, cleared data/cache a few time to no avail. The app works so well to keep apps in control I hate to not be able to use it. Thanks for any suggestions!!

Thanks I missed the internal storage switch, the first item in the hamburger menu 😁

So far I really love the application! But is it possible to install an App to the Island with a different signature but the same package name as the Mainland App? So far I'm getting the usual package can't install error. Maybe the are some "ADB hacks" for this task? So far I haven't found anything in the thread regarding this topic. But sorry if I missed something and it's already answered.
