A new version 7.4.1 has been released for LK8000 and LK8000 Beta.
Both files were downloaded from the Google PlayStore and subsequently installed on my Samsung S21 FE.

LK8000 was installed first:
Internal Storage/
Android/
data/
org.lk8000.beta/
files/

then LK8000 Beta was installed:
Internal Storage/
Android/
data/
org.lk8000.test/
files/

The data files (such as airspace and waypoint) that I placed in LK8000 were also apparently (automatically) placed in the same folders in LK8000 Beta.

Is the installation on my Samsung correct and why are these confusing path names used?

Because a year or two ago Android said it had to be done that way. Do they both work OK, if they do then it is correct. You don't need both, if you always want the latest, use the beta, and update when something new comes out, if not use the stable version.

Are the path names created by Android or is it provided that way by LK8000?

How is it possible that the data files in LK8000 automatically appear in LK8000 Beta? After all, these are two different installations.

Basically I use the beta version and fall back to the stable version if necessary.

created by Android, can't be modified by app...
