Proton Drive Android App — sync with a local folder
I would really like the ability to not only have the offline-available files be accessable from within the Android app, but to also be able to specify a local folder on my device where those files would be located, so I could access them from any other app. Any remote changes are synced to the local files, any local changes are synced to the remote files. One of the reasons is that I need a way to sync my KeePass database between my desktop and my phone. Right now I'm using OneDrive for it, which I believe provides some kind of API for app developers to be able to sync changes between the cloud and the app. It's the only thing I'm using OneDrive for, and I'd really like to finally stop using it.

I very much want to move away from Google Drive to proton, but I need to be able to sync KeePass database across devices, so through-filesystem access is a must
I would immediately upgrade my subscription if this was a feature. Would be especially helpful for notes apps, like Obsidian.

I would appreciate this as well. I want to sync my Obsidian notes across all my devices by storing my vault on Proton Drive.
Currently, I am unable to sync my mobile phone, so I need to check if OneDrive or Google Drive could be viable alternatives.

This would be hugely beneficial. The lack of this feature is the only thing preventing me from switching completely to the proton unlimited plan.
Genuine mobile sync would actually put Proton Drive ahead of competitors in my book
+++ in iOS too
Me too, I have this problem and it is a deal-breaker for me to have this.

Total madness that this wasn't implemented at launch. Should be added asap, until then it's just a laugh

+++ KeePass sync on android app
I have exactly the same need. Many apps (notes app for example) only offer to browse local files. Having the option of saving all or part of the drive locally on the phone would be a huge advantage, especially as the competitors don't offer it.
