The app no longer requests Storage permission for stats backup and game saves. Therefore stats no longer automatically backup, and game saves are now saved in an internal app area. Both stats and game saves will now be deleted if the app is uninstalled. In its place, there are new import and export options on the stats screen and load game screen. If you have previously accepted the storage permission, it will remain active to allow the copy of existing save files to internal storage.
