Sorry if it still isn't available.  Google rejected my update because in the description I wrote:
"My wife and I use this app to review a small set of relationship questions each week during a long walk."

Apparently the concept of a human coder describing how he uses the application did not compute.  Their complaint: "The app's full and/or short description includes unattributed user testimonials or more than five attributed quotes/testimonials"

Ha!

These are the times we are living in, google play simply could not comprehend the concept of an author commenting on how they might use their own app..  Sigh. Ok google, you win, I've removed any semblance of appearance that a human being made this app and removed that statement.

That's stupid. But even so, it sounds like all you needed to do was add " - the author" at the end of that statement so that it was attributed. But it's still stupid.

I updated :up:
Am I doing this right:
Tools / Import... /...data from URL

Using your link (https://kk.org/thete...-unsolicited-advice/) I get the error (ocr therefore bad formatting):

Failed to open downloaded file
content://downloads/all_downloads/6841
Import aborted: java.lang.Exception: Error
parsing import file: Unknown file format for import data. Should be json or simple
text that whose first line starts with
@FILEFORMAT:#.

no.

Sorry my instructions weren't very clear.

It's Tools -> Import -> Browse Suggested..

Then you'll see a list of available imports.. The new one is at the bottom.

Yes.  Google continues to increase security stuff on Android, and it seems that some recent changes broke the location my code was trying to download the data files to during import.  The recent update fixes this.
