The requirement to copy RM7 files via Dropbox to then download them to the RM app on my phone is very cumbersome and slow.

In my area (semi-rural Tasmania) the only available internet service is Fixed Wireless, where connection from my home is via a wireless transmitter on an ISP tower to a wireless receiver (small antenna) on the house.

The connections speeds with this type of service are poor, particularly upload speed.

It would save considerable time and data charges if I could just copy the RM7 database directly to the phone, preferably to the SD card if the RM app can use the file from the SD card.

The only way to copy the database to the RM App on Android is Dropbox. There isn't a work around.
