Unfortunately I found this article after my phone updated today:
"KitKat will make your SD Card completely useless: per the Android API specification, apps can no longer write files to your SD card. And Samsung is following it... What this means is that with KitKat, applications will no longer be able create, modify, or remove files and folders on your external SD card."
It's like google wants everyone to switch to iphones. This especially aggravates me as I have a 64 gig sd card that is essentially useless now, except for taking movies and photos.
