4.3 update for the Galaxy S4 Google Play edition breaks SD card writing

The Galaxy S4 Google Play edition phone after a 4.3 update has a issue that most apps can no longer write
anything to the external SD card, and you will receive an error notification when you try to write to the card.
The cause is a group ID issue, and applications are not given permission to access
the external storage for writing because they aren't in the right group.
Untill Google and Samsung fixes the problem, you can copy files to the external SD card manually by using ES File Explorer File Manager

There are other options involving rooting your device, see the Android Central article for more information
